Updated Flash Statement On COVID-19

Flash Families,

We hope this email finds you all safe and healthy at home with your families.

The past 3 weeks have not been easy on any of us, and we applaud all of our Flash players who have been committed to improving themselves on their own not only on the field, but in the classroom during challenging times. It makes our whole staff incredibly proud to see so many self-motivated players staying disciplined with the support of their families amidst hard times. We know this hard work will pay off when we resume play.

The health and well-being of our Flash players, coaches and family members remain our top priority.  Therefore, based on the most recent local, state and federal government mandates, all Flash Academy programming remains suspended until May 15th, 2020.

We encourage our players to continue following our “Flash Outside The Lines” at home workout programming as we are updating the program weekly. We will continue to look for new, innovative training tools that will be beneficial to our player’s development and will share them with you.

As new information becomes available, we will keep you updated regarding any programming changes.

Thank You,
WNY Flash Directors
