Sorry for the delay in getting registration information to you. The COVID-19 impact has been felt and has certainly thrown a wrench into our plans for the coming year. At this point, the league is monitoring the situation and hoping to be able to run a season this fall. So we will proceed with registering athletes for the season with the understanding that the season may be shortened, delayed, or canceled. In order for us to field the teams, we need to have final numbers and equipment sized By the second week of July so that equipment can be ordered in time for the start of the season. At the same time, we don’t want to order the equipment too soon in case there is a cancelation. Based on the numbers that indicated they wanted to participate in Tackle football there is sufficient interest to field a 4th/5th grade team. Perhaps two depending on how many people follow through on registering. There is not sufficient interest to run a 1st/2nd grade or a 3rd/4th grade tackle team. Once the board is formalized it will be their call in regards to next year and whether to look at younger teams at that time. At this time I am asking that 4th and 5th-grade families interested in participating in tackle football, please complete this initial registration. The cost for the coming season will be $150, but at this time I am only asking for a refundable deposit of $50. The bulk of this cost is tied up in the equipment cost for the students. The remainder is for officiating. Parents will also be asked to cover the cost of the uniform pants $30 and possibly a reversible Jersey $62 TBD after registration numbers are finalized. I am sensitive to the economic times that we are currently in and I don’t want any player to miss out due to financial reasons. If there is a hardship going on that would prevent your child from participating, please let me know and we will work something out. At the end of the day, we may be able to reduce the costs if we are successful with fundraising efforts.

With the unfortunate circumstances, the Elkhorn Area High School Student Council is sad to announce the cancelation of our annual Dodgeball Tournament. We are still asking for any monetary donations for the Mnuk Family during this uncertain time. We hope that you and your family consider supporting Mackenzie Mnuk and help make a huge difference in someone’s life. About Mackenzie: Since 2018, Mackenzie has endured 5 skull surgeries, 2 LP shunt (abdominal) surgeries, 6 spinal/shunt taps, 2 emergency visits, over 8-week long hospital stays, in addition to her several scheduled and unscheduled trips to University of Chicago for post-op care and emergency visits. Mackenzie's compromised health limits her ability to work, drive, participate in sports, and hang out with friends. Despite her medical challenges, Mackenzie enjoys school activities (such as Drama Club, HOSA, National Honors Society, Link Crew, Peer Tutoring, and Key Club), church youth group, and volunteering.
