JPS NYFL started this petition to Governor Steve Sisolak

The State of Nevada is no stranger to the effects of COVID-19. Our communities have been affected in numerous ways since the discovery and onset of the virus. Thousands and thousands of families have had to adjust to an altered mode of daily living.

With the shutdown of schools, churches, clubs and other related extracurricular activities our local youth are being severely affected not only by the lack of physical activity but are also suffering in their social and emotion health from the lack there of!

The leadership team here at JPS NYFL, a local Las Vegas non-profit youth football & cheer league, have been extremely focused on providing a safe place for kids to return to play! Under the Governor's directives, we were able to reopen to "Practice-Only" as of June 15th, 2020.

Since that day, our league has worked very closely with all our governing jurisdictions to ensure our organization remains diligent in our oversight efforts. We are EXTREMELY proud to state that by our teams adhering to the mandatory guidelines, we have had ZERO outbreaks of this virus!

For almost 4 months, our Staff, Coaches, Players and Families have cautiously moved forward, devised a detailed plan for Return-to-Play and expressed great hopes that our Governor would open us to competition!

October 2nd, 2020 the Governor announced limited reopening to youth sports. Sadly, Tackle Football was left "on the sidelines" a little longer! What a GREAT disappointment!!! We are now left with almost no time to run a season! This equates to THOUSANDS of kids now possibly forced to "SIT IT OUT" till next year! That would make it almost a whole year without competition! THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!

Please take a moment to sign this petition to ask Governor Sisolak to reconsider allowing all sports league's who have reasonably demonstrated their success in activity without further spread of the virus to OPEN-TO-COMPETITION!!!!
