Important Update from The Board of Directors

Thunder Families,

Thank you for your patience over the last few weeks as we continue to hear ever-changing news regarding youth and high school sports. As you may have heard, Governor Pritzker and the IHSA have made a decision on youth and high school football; moving it from a Fall season to a Spring season. So, we are hopeful that youth tackle football can join the spring season as well. 

In the meantime, we appreciate your commitment to our organization. We had a tremendous response to our survey, and are encouraged with the number of players that want to continue on with flag football. 

Currently, the flag football was listed under “medium risk” sport and will allow us to hopefully play inner-league scrimmages. We are working to see what guidelines we will need to follow and work with our local stakeholders in finalizing what our options are.  

In the meantime, our Thunder Board has decided it would be best to give full refunds to all flag, tackle and cheer families until we know further guidelines about flag and ideally spring tackle. 

If you have not returned your equipment yet, please do so by August 7th.  After August 7th, the deposit checks will be cashed. If you are a cheerleader, Coach Castaldo will reach out to you individually about returning uniforms. 

We want to keep the excitement about youth flag, tackle and cheer going, so be on the look-out for some fun and up-coming ways to stay active, stay positive and keep our Thunder Family together during these unprecedented times.

We value our organization, youth sports, but most importantly we value YOU!

That’s why we will be sending out a blast on August 4th with a link to our online store. Get some new gear, wear it proud, and let’s be ready for our next steps toward youth football!!
