DesertSands FNL Coaches and Families – 5/5/21
What an amazing Opening Night! Thanks for your role in making this happen. It was soo nice to see the kids back outside playing the game they love, Flag football. The national anthem took on a new meaning. WE ARE BACK!
Every week we will send you a follow up communication to celebrate what went well and talk about what needs to improve. The opening night was not without some hiccups.
#1 issue was parking. Warning- I was able to buy us one week but the officer on patrol stressed ALL cars parked in red or those in handicap spots without placard will be ticketed and towed. This is a safety issue, and we all need to be compliant. I expect they will be back this Friday.
Masks- The CDC communication is confusing, but Please realize we are governed by the city of LaQuinta’s protocols, and they require all attendees to wear masks, even outside. No matter your perspective, deal with the inconvenience and realize we need to oblige for the kids or risk being shut down.
Officiating- I am super optimistic about the quality of our Refs and the preparation from our new Head Ref Albert Galvin. Here are a couple points from week 1.
Upcoming Week #2-
Keep it FUN!!!
