Tackle Football Parents,

It is with great disappointment that we must inform you that the 2020 Jefferson-Shelby Youth Football League tackle football season has been cancelled. This was after a vote of all member parks and JSYFL board members. Obviously, this vote did not go the way our park leadership had hoped it would. 

 Although the news is disappointing, we are fortunate to be able to offer your kids the opportunity to play football in our flag football league. We currently have 140 players registered in our flag football league from K/1 through 5th grade and would like to offer all kids registered for tackle the opportunity to participate in the flag league. If you DO NOT desire to have your registration transferred to the flag league, please email Bart Pettus at Those we do not hear from will be moved to the flag league.

 From a financial standpoint, we will be offering refunds to all registered tackle players that do not wish to participate in our flag program. If you will be moving to the flag league and have paid in full, you will be due a $125 refund. If you will not be moving to the flag league and have paid in full, you will be due a $250 refund. All partial payments for those who wish to participate in flag will be applied to the $125 registration fee. All balances owed will be due before uniform orders will be placed. Again, please email if you would like to be removed completely from the league and receive a full refund.

2020 Press Release


Thank you for you cooperation. We will get through this together.

Chelsea Park and Rec
