Former Sturgeon Bay star spearheads football league

You can thank former Sturgeon Bay football player Chris Greisen for saving the fall for several local football players.


According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Greisen was working on developing the The Friday Night Showcase, a 7-on-7 non-contact league that plans to begin next month. He has since turned the keys over to Steve Childers, who is part of the National Youth Football Organization. Greisen has been organizing 7 on 7 tournaments for a long time, even after he accepted a role to coach at West De Pere High School. The hope is 16 teams would participate in the league, which has a $2,500 registration fee and would play its games at Capital Credit Union Park in Ashwaubenon.  

Sturgeon Bay pushes fall contact sports to spring

There will be no contact sports this fall at Sturgeon Bay. Athletic Director Todd Meikle shared the news with coaches Wednesday evening after the Sturgeon Bay School Board meeting voted to suspend the fall contact sports season. The decision affects football, volleyball, and boys soccer. Sports like swimming, cross country, and golf can have practices, but will not be able to participate in competitions until the COVID-19 activity level in Door County dips to the low or moderate level. 


It was one of four options presented to the school board Wednesday. The other options included:


-Letting all fall sports continue under the recommended guidelines of the WIAA and the Packerland Conference. This would have been in step with what approved by Kewaunee and Southern Door earlier this week.


-Cancel all fall sports regardless of contact level and push them to the alternative spring season. 


-Teams could have practiced this fall and have their games rescheduled if necessary to the spring if they could not play them this fall. This would not work for the swimming and golf teams, who have seen their Bay Conference members already start their seasons this week.


More communication from Sturgeon Bay School District is expected later on Thursday.

Sturgeon Bay Soccer Club still planning for fall

The Sturgeon Bay Soccer Club is still hopeful to get kids on the pitch this fall.


In a Facebook post on Thursday, the SBSC reminded parents that even though they used to accept registrations past its normal date, this year they'd like to see those forms come in before August 28th. The organization will also follow WIAA, WYSA, and Wisconsin Health Department recommendations for the development of a COVID-19 protocol, which will be released at a later time. If all goes well, the season will start along with the high school kids on September 7th.
