WILMINGTON, MA — Due to current conditions relating to Covid-19, it is with great thought and sadness to announce that the Eastern Mass Pop Warner Executive Board voted unanimously to suspend our 2020 Football & Cheerleading season. There is no indication at this time the guidelines from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Reopening Standards for Youth Sports Phase III, Step 1will change within the next six months. Both football and cheerleading are considered high risk sports for the transmission of Covid-19. The health and safety of our athletes and families has aways been and will always remain our number one priority.
Wilmington Pop Warner will continue to work towards normalcy and development of our players and cheerleaders. We believe it’s important for their development, their health, and for their immunities. Our hope is to get them out exercising and running around by holding in-person clinics when it is safe to do so.
We are all in this together and together we will prevail. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to Joe McCauley or Krystle Valente.
