Hello All Panther Families,
Hopefully by now all parents have received your welcome letters and current team assignments. We are now at that time of year that all Panther’s love to hear “Football Time”. Below we have some very important information and dates for the Start of this year’s Panther Football season. Look forward to seeing all the kids and families come out and enjoy some great team sports with the usual Panther Fan energy. First a big thanks to all the kids who have signed up and to the Parent’s for keeping the CSYFA strong. We appreciate all the coaches/assistant coaches who are volunteering their time to make sure all the kids play the game safe, and also bring the fun that keeps this team sport alive.
Now on to the dates.
VERY IMPORTANT TO ATTEND THIS YEAR***Next Sunday (July 21) Equipment Handout at Rockin’ Jump (Sponsor) Carol Steam from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Address is 485 Mission Street. During this event, every registered 2019 football player will be able to jump for FREE for 1 hour. Non-registered siblings get a 50% discount off their jump fee so they can join the fun.
On this day, your TACKLE/FLAG football player(s) will receive the necessary equipment and GET FITTED FOR THER JERSEY for their use during the 2019 season. Along with equipment, we will be issuing our MANDATORY $100 fundraiser per player “Charity Mania” game cards, to all CSYFA registrants.
In order for your player to receive their equipment and Charity Mania game cards, at Equipment Handout, CSYFA requires (2) separate checks for the following:
1. A TACKLE equipment deposit check in the amount of $150, made payable to “CSYFA”, per player. This check will not be cashed as long as the equipment is returned to the organization in the same condition it was received.
NOTE: A deposit check is NOT required for Flag.
2. A separate check, in the amount $100, made payable to “CSYFA”, to cover your (5) Charity Mania game cards per player. As you sell your 5 tickets, you will then keep the money to recoup your $100.
• Please have checks already filled out to “CSYFA”. *
CSYFA will NOT issue equipment and/or Charity Mania game cards to anyone that has an outstanding balance on their 2019 registration and/or if the above-mentioned (2) checks are not received at this July 21st event. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
There are other items that you must purchase for your player before the season start. Those items are as follows: black football pants, compression shirt/rib guard, football cleats, cup and mouth guard. This information is in Documents Section on the CSYFA website under FAQ.
