ATTENDANCE at uniform fittings is MANDATORY. In order to streamline our player certification process, ALL players and cheerleaders MUST take their pictures at fittings. These pictures will be loaded into their player profile in SportsSignup and parents will be able to print all their forms before the first day of practice. Forms must be in color, signed and turned in on the first day in order to begin practice.
Volunteer Cards will also be distributed at uniform fittings by the Executive Board. Each family will receive a card that will be used to electronically sign in and sign out of volunteer slots for easier tracking. This volunteer card is your insurance policy for your deposit. Hours are tracked electronically and the master report printed at the end of the season is what we will use to determine your eligibility for a refund. NO EXCEPTIONS. We are a volunteer run organization and it is of the utmost importance that all families sign up for hours as well as complete the time slots they sign up for.
We will be hosting two mandatory meetings prior to the season as well as one staff training day. Attendance (football and cheer) is absolutely mandatory in order to receive your badge and meet the new requirements for the 2015 season. ALL staff must register at the link above as well and complete a Background Check. Background checks are only good for one year and must be done in order to receive your badge. Staff picture days will also be announced shortly.
Registration is OPEN! We will be scaling back our roster numbers for the 2015 season so don't wait to register...only 25 spots available per team! In addition, there are only 5 Older Lighter spots available on Starts, Rookies and JV, leaving a remainder of 20 spots per team on those 3 levels. The league has voted to bring MPR's back as a MANDATORY rule and to gauge for this change, alleviate pressure on coaches and keep playing time for each participant fair, we will be reducing roster size at every level.
