2020 EFFA season update
The EFFA executive would like to keep you updated on our plans for the 2020 season. Here is where we stand as of early July.
The EFFA will not be starting a modified season during phase two of Alberta’s relaunch. We made this decision after much thought, discussion and feedback from team reps regarding their interest, or lack thereof, in taking part in a heavily modified play structure. When factoring in the fiscal aspect, safety concern, logistical component and administrative challenge it became pretty clear to the executive that launching during phase two was not the best move for the league. We all have a very strong desire to maintain the integrity of our game so changing the format of 7 on 7 with line play was not going to be an option and once we received tepid (at best) feedback from the teams themselves regarding their desire to play within the modified framework, it was obvious to us the the right move for our league is to continue to wait for phase three of the relaunch.
All that aside we remain focused on launching a season as soon as phase three gets the green light. One thing we would like you as a team rep to do is to stay in contact with your team and ensure you are ready to play within days of any phase three announcement. Being ready will go a long way towards helping us all get back to playing ball as soon as possible once we get the all clear.
The executive hopes you and your families are all safe and healthy and we look forward to getting back out there with you in the near future.
As updates become available they will be communicated out to the team representatives. If you have any questions, please contact the league email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 780-691-2514.
