We are requesting that the Somers Youth Football Community review and comment on our proposed by-law amendment that focuses on health and safety obligations of coaches, as well as other requirements pertaining to game-day needs and equipment management. This proposal will be open for a period of 30 days beginning on August 16, 2023. Material proposed edits will also be posted on this page for the community to review. It is requested that any comments be sent to BOTH email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
These changes are prompted by increasing focus on safety compliance across SYSO, Taconic Youth Football, and American Youth Football, all of which Somers Youth Football is a part of. These were also recommended by our new and broadened board of directors. That said we are very proud of the safety protocols that our volunteer coaches follow each and every day to keep our kids safe at practice and on gameday. These by-law changes are being put in place to formalize practices and policies that our coaches have consistently followed.
