Practice times will vary according to the coach but they will be daily for about 2 hours for those 3 weeks. We understand that players are finishing spring sports so will be lenient with attendance.

Equipment distribution is right around the corner for spring football. If your player is ONLY playing fall, but has already registered, he can get his equipment now if desired.
Distribution is Sunday 4/23 from 1-4:00 at LHS behind the home bleachers. I have attached the forms that are needed to complete registration. If your son has NOT played LJTF before, you will need to provide a copy of his birth certificate.
For returning players:
1.) Physical form (or another MD signed form) stating clearance to play
2.) GMSAA waiver
3.) Copy of current report card or parent vue screenshot stating grade
4.) Two deposit checks-one for volunteer/one for equipment; these will NOT be cashed if volunteer duties are fulfilled and if equipment is returned.
You will have the option to purchase practice gear and other spiritwear as well!
Please keep in mind that our whole program is run by volunteers and it takes all of us to do our part to make it a successful and enjoyable experience for the players and families!
All families are required to complete 3 volunteer shifts per player in the LJTF program. Families of coaches, team mom, team dad and season long announcer will be the only ones exempt from these requirements. All families have the choice of opting out of their volunteer shifts. The opt-out fee is $200 per player. If for any reason you are unable to fulfill the volunteer requirement during the season, the $200 volunteer deposit check will be cashed at the end of season.
Volunteer shifts will be available for all of our home games and each shift will be approximately 2-2 ½ hours. We will have volunteer opportunities in Concessions, Spirit Wear Sales and Front Gate.
There are few glitches to work out as we get our CFL families in the NGIN database. This is where the DIBS system is located and is where you will find and claim you volunteer shifts. I will explain this more in a follow up email when the site goes live and is ready for you all to claim your shifts. Please note that all shifts must be claimed and carried out by an adult 18 years or older.
We look forward to a great football season and thank you so much in advance for your assistance.
Jeff Salyer, our current treasurer, has created an excellent Powerpoint to help educate our members and answer questions based on fees collected to support LJTF. If you have any questions after reviewing this, please feel free to reach out to Jeff at email@example.com.
