Wednesday, 8/15/18, 4:00pm
We will have indoor practice tonight. All teams will be at Glencoe High School from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
Wear only shorts, tshirt and sneakers (NO CLEATS!!!). Do not bring helmets or any other gear.
Reminder: The TVYFL medical form is required this year for all tackle players. It must be signed by a doctor or nurse and cannot be stamped. It must be turned in during equipment handout (before any equipment can be issued).
Tackle Equipment: Saturday, 8/18 at the shed at Glencoe High School:
MUST have medical release signed by Doctor/Nurse at check-in.
No form = No gear!
Flag Equipment: 8/20 at Evergreen side field at 5:00pm (also a parent meeting at that time)
Don't miss out on all the fun!
NOTE: JV (7th Grade) and Varsity (8th Grade) will have waitlists after 30 players are registered. This is due to TVYFL requirements of maximum team size. If enough players are placed on the waitlist, then we can open it up again. So don't delay! Register today!
The tackle fees are only $50*, if you take advantage of the fundraising opportunity.
*See below for details.
Although you pay $250 to register to play tackle football for GYF, you have the opportunity earn much of that back. The fundraiser for this year can earn you $200 of your fees back to you, if you make the effort. This effort is entirely up to you!
At equipment handout, we will provide each player with twenty (20) raffle tickets, each with a selling value of $10. As you sell them, you keep the money. You do not give that money back to GYF.
Therefore, if you want to make the effort and sell all 20 of the tickets, you will earn $200 that you will simply keep, which will offset your registration fee. If you choose to not sell any raffle tickets, since you are not required to sell any, then your cost for the season will be $250 (or $225 if you registered before 6/1).
By early September, all of the raffle tickets that were sold/filled out, will be collected by your team parent. We will have the raffle drawing on September 20th.
If you have any further questions, please let us know. Thanks and ROLL TIDE!!!
Glencoe Youth Football has established the following fees for 2018:
Flag Football: $50 per player
There is no payment plan or discount for flag football.
Tackle Football (3rd through 8th grade): $250
There is a $25 discount if you register between April 1 through June 1. After June 1, the registration fee will bounce back to $250.
There will be an opportunity for you to raise funds to earn up to $200 ($100 if there is a family discount already applied) to help offset the tackle registration fee. More information will be provided over the summer.
Family Discount for Tackle Football only
If you are registering more than one tackle player in your family, you will receive a $100 discount on the 2nd, 3rd or more players for those in 3rd-8th grade. In order for the registration system to recognize that you are registering multiple players, please register all of your players at the same time. On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your players are registered within the same order.
Payment for flag football will be expected in full at the time of registration. You will have the option to pay in full for tackle football or via payment plan. The initial payment will be paid the day you register your child and then the program will deduct the remaining payments on July 1 and August 1. You can make a payment via credit card or through your checking account. The remaining payment will be taken from the original form of payment unless you change it prior to June 1 or August 1. NOTE: There is a $2 per payment processing fee when you select the payment plan.
Beginning with the 2018 season, all 3rd/4th grade teams for GYF will play "Rookie Tackle" football. This is FULL CONTACT TACKLE football. However, there are some differences with standard football. Namely, it is 8-on-8 and is played on a smaller field size. There are no kickoffs, punts or PATs. Check out USA Football's website for complete rules and FAQ. - Click here for more information.
This differs from the 2017 season, where GCF played "Contact Flag" football.
