The City of Wichita Park and Recreation department announced today that it is postponing the youth football program for the fall of 2020, with tentative plans to hold the program in the spring of 2021.
The City of Wichita is following Sedgwick County recommendations regarding playing football and close contact sports. The safety of the players, parents and staff are paramount.
“We are sorry that we have to postpone this year’s season,” said Park and Recreation Directory Troy Houtman. “Ensuring we can keep our participants safe is our number one priority, and we look forward to when we can host our youth football players safely again.”
Details on the spring season will be released as plans are updated.
