Given the widespread outbreak and the possibility of COVID-19 being contracted, federal, state, and local governments, and federal and state health agencies, recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited or limited the congregation of groups of people. MJFA has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Even with these measures, the Board cannot guarantee that its participants or other individuals, participating in recreational athletic or training and conditioning activities/games and using MJFA or other equipment will not become infected with COVID-19.

Lindsay’s Law Information

Lindsay’s Law is about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in youth athletes. This law went into effect in 2017. SCA is the leading cause of death in student-athletes 19 years of age or younger. SCA occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. This cuts off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. SCA is fatal if not treated immediately.
