I hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy. Our leadership is very optimistic that our football and cheer program will be on the field in July giving our young men and women a much needed relief from their hibernation. We will continue to monitor the impact of COVID 19, and put the health of the players and cheerleaders first in our planning. To ensure we are ready to host our fall season when given the "all clear", we have new pads on order after the recent damage from the vandalism at Riley Field, our helmets have been shipped to be refurbished and recertified, and we are working on schedules for camps and clinics in July.
In response to Covid 19 and its effects on families budgets, we are going to offer two registration options for both football and cheer. We have decided not to update or change the uniforms for either football or cheer this season in order to offer returning players and cheer a reduced registration fee for reusing their jerseys and uniforms from last season or swapping with a friend. If you can use last year's jersey or cheer uniform or find one that works, the registration fee will be $275 for both football and cheer. Our cheer board members are also reviewing uniform swap programs, and once they have that finalized, they will be reaching out for volunteers to help coordinate.
If you need to replace your uniform, you will still have the option to purchase the uniform via the full registration fees of $375. We are also waiving late fees provided that registrations are in on time for us to place uniform orders (mid June). Uniforms take a little over a month for us to get in after we place orders. For payment plans, families can place a $75 deposit down at registration with June 1st and July 1st payment options if they so choose. As always, we are looking for ways to get our costs down via donations and grants, and will pass along those savings to our families.
We can't wait for the players and cheerleaders to take the field again this fall, and look forward to returning to the community together for some awesome football! If you have any questions, please email email@example.com, or call 678-671-6680.
