Governor Kemp's Executive Order on Thursday paved the way for our season by removing restrictions and allowing for the start of sports leagues at all levels. Our season will kickoff with Acclimation training for Football and Cheer beginning July 7th. We have ordered proper sanitizing equipment and will follow the restart guidelines set for our league. Riley Field is already cleared for our Acclimation training, and we are working with our feeder schools to hold events there as well.
In order for us to plan, however, we need players and cheerleaders registered by July 1st. Our board is set to review player and cheer registrations and the guidance applicable as of July 1st to finalize the Acclimation details. Please note, in the event that there is a second wave and we are put back into restrictions, our board will issue prorated refunds based on where the season was interrupted.
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 July 1st and July 15th 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.
