July 14, 2020
Dear Jr Trojan Families,
Today, we announce the cancellation of our 2020 season for cheer, dance, flag, and tackle.
Since the end of last season, CJT board members and staff have been eagerly planning and preparing for the 2020 season. For the last 5 months our board has monitored daily and weekly reports on the status of COVID-19 in Northern Illinois. We have also closely monitored the development of guidelines published by the Illinois Department of Health, IHSA, and other valued youth sports and health organizations. We have had discussions with our leagues, our peer communities, and within our own board to try to find and develop a plan so that we might have a safe season. Through this process, we have realized that we had a challenging task ahead of us. Many other TCYFL and IRCA communities have felt the same way, and have already decided to cancel their seasons.
In light of these challenges, our parent league, TCYFL (tcyfl.net) voted (this evening) to cancel the 2020 season.
CJT is sad to make this announcement, but feel it is in the best overall interest of our youth, youth program, and peer community programs. We hope that 2021 will bring change that will allow us to return to play, and we look forward to seeing everyone back at practices and on the field at that time.
You do not need to submit a refund request. 100% refunds will be issued to families via checks.
In an effort to get the refunds to our families as quickly as possible, we will have staff at the Cary Jr High concession stand from 10:00-11:30 am on Saturday, July 18th. Please bring a photo ID to receive your check, and make certain that the person who purchased the registration is the person retrieving the check (or is in the immediate family). If you can stop at the Jr High, it will also be a big help to our staff... as it will save us time and money vs sending via postal mail. That said, if you do not pick up your check, we will place the check into the mail in the next 1-2 weeks. Note: If you have moved since January, please confirm your new address with our treasurer at email@example.com.
Jersey Fitting Registration has been closed. No further action is required by our parents.
Equipment Fitting dates have been canceled.
For those enrolled in Speed and Agility camp, it is still going. It is a non-contact camp with social distancing.
Last, Cary Jr Trojans have always supported and encouraged our players to become multi-sport athletes.
Registration for CGYBS Fall Ball is still open. Please consider joining for this fall, or finding another way to involve your son/daughter in the camaraderie of youth sports and activities.
Any questions may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dear Cary Jr. Trojans Families,
The CJT board continues to work COVID-19 plans with our league and parent organizations for tackle, flag, dance, and cheer. At this point, we do not know if we will have a normal season, a modified season, or a canceled season. This uncertainty is not ideal, but our directors are working hard; evaluating and planning all possible options so that we can be ready for the 2020 season.
In an effort to help improve financial certainty for CJT's families, we have voted to extend our 100% refund deadline until the start of the 2020 season.

Registration for the 2020 season is now available! Please go to the registration tab for more information and for details on the 2020 season. The link to registration for all of the CJT programs is included in this section.
Please note that for 2020, we have created a promotional program for referring new participants (*new = athletes that did not participate in CJT in 2019). When new participants register, they will have an opportunity to list (a single) referring CJT family. The referring CJT family will then receive a $50 credit/refund (applied Oct 1st) to their own registration. This program is open to all levels of our program.
