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 2014 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.
FINAL EQUIPMENT RETURN NIGHT:
Monday, January 12th: 6:45pm - 8:15pm
Players must return helmet, shoulder pads, black jersey, game pants and practice pants.
VOLUNTEER REFUND NIGHT:
Wednesday, January 14th: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Must have completed 12 hours of volunteer time, returned all equipment and have no outstanding balances with ORYFC.
Registration will open January 31st at Midnight. We will be scaling back our roster numbers for the 2015 season so don't wait to register...only 25 spots available per team! 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.
If you were a 2014 season football or cheer coach and would like to retain your spot for the 2015 season, either on the same team or a different team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will open remaining spots to new coaches on February 1st, 2015.
