Updated Statement from our League President!

July 30, 2020

Good Afternoon Matadores,

We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

Our OEC President released a statement on Tuesday with the new plans for our conference in regards to the 2020 season.  It was decided at our OEC meeting that we would forgo a fall season in 2020 and instead postpone to a Spring 2021 season. 

As you may have heard, many leagues in our conference have decided to opt out of a 2020 season all together and wait for  fall 2021.  We understand that no decision is easy with our current Covid-19 climate as there are many uncertainties we face and will continue to face.  La Mirada Matadores Youth Football supports the decisions made by those leagues and we wish them well.

The La Mirada Matadores Board met yesterday and has decided to remain hopeful for a Spring 2021 season and will revisit this decision on November 1st; with a final answer as to if we should proceed with a season.  With guidelines constantly changing, the board felt it would be best to wait a bit longer before possibly opting out of season.   We remain committed to the health and safety of our children and their families and make all our decisions with that at the forefront of our minds taking our guidelines that are approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Health and the permitted use of fields by the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District.

Our tentative schedule would be to start the season in December 2020 with conditioning and practice, with our games starting January 9, 2021.  We understand that many of our families participate in other sports that are in season during this time and will be unable to commit to football.   LMMYF will offer a full refund of your sign up fee should you need to opt out now.  Please communicate this to your head coaches and they will give you the steps on how to proceed.  For those that choose to move on with us, rest assured that we will still offer a refund should the season not start with our new timeline.   

In dealing with this pandemic and the many uncertainties it has brought along, we hope that you understand our decisions and continue to support us.  We miss our La Mirada Matadores Family and hope to see you out on the field soon! 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].

We are LM!

Virginia Rodriguez
