The Crimson Tide Pop Warner youth football and cheerleading organization, under the direction of President Brian Diamond, will begin practices for the 2020 season on Sept. 1.
“There will be two weeks of non-contact, conditioning football drills at Sacramone Park and Seven Acres Parks – if we have five teams, the oldest divisions (U-12 and U-14) will practice at Seven Acres, so we can have plenty of distancing between the teams,” said Director of Football Chuck Leo. “The cheerleading teams will practice at Sacramone Park.”
Leo said a tentative schedule is in the works for the five Everett teams. “We’ll only be playing teams that are local to us,” said Leo. “We won’t be traveling into Boston or up to the Merrimack Valley.”
It is likely that playoffs will be held, culminating with the New England Regionals.
“We have opted out of the National Championships in Florida,” said Leo. “A lot of teams here on the East Coast are opting out as well. The situation [COVID-19] in Florida is too unsafe right now.”
