****2020 Season Update****

Panther Families,

We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

Last week, the Petaluma Panther Youth Football and Cheer (PPYFC) Board met. After much contemplation and consideration, and with the safety of our players/cheerleaders/coaches/parents our highest priority, we voted to delay the start of the 2020 Football and Cheer season to coincide with High School sports. Therefore, we are planning/hoping to tentatively start conditioning/practicing in October in preparation for games which will begin on or around January 2021.

As we alluded to in our previous email, we have decided to go independent. We feel strongly that doing this offers us our best shot of competing during these unprecedented times. It will give us the freedom to build our own schedule and secure/face teams throughout the Greater Bay Area.  Looking toward the future, going independent will allow us to determine whether we want to continue with the NBYFC, join another league, or remain independent indefinitely.

We hope you understand and support our decision; it was not made lightly. We need your help to ensure that the 2021 season is a great one. Football and Cheer will look a little different, of this there is no doubt. But our goal remains the same; to give our Panthers the best and safest season possible!

IN ORDER FOR US TO BEGIN PLANNING, IT IS VITAL THAT PLAYERS/CHEERLEADERS REGISTER ONLINE ASAP.  Registration is open at petalumapanthers.org (or you can CLICK HERE TO REGISTER). The minimum payment due to hold your spot is $50.00.  FULL REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED IN THE EVENT THE SEASON IS CANCELLED.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Instagram , and Cheer Instagram pages to stay up to date on important information.

On behalf of the entire Board, we thank you for your continued support. Please reach out to [email protected] should you have any questions or require additional information.

 

Warmly,

Gina Giomi
President
