Kelseyville Chiefs Youth Football League

Mendo-Lake Empire Junior Football League (MLEJFL) held a Zoom Board Meeting on June 30th, 2020. We have voted to cancel our 2020 MLEJFL football and cheer season. We made this ruling with our youth athletes, families, and our teams in mind. It breaks our hearts that our children are losing a year of football and cheer. Both sports teach each athlete teamwork, sportsmanship, respect and so much more.

Unfortunately, there are countless reasons that are preventing us from starting this season: player and cheerleader health concerns related to COVID-19, insurance and liability concerns, safety equipment and field use issues, inability to have spectators or concessions, as well as the ever changing State and County health guidelines.

As always, MLEJFL is dedicated to the physical and mental development & well-being of our youth athletes. We hope you all understand the reasoning behind our decision. Please take care over the coming months. We hope to see you all in 2021!
