I hope you had a successful and fun couple weeks of spring football! Coach Brown and I will be continuing our Jr Trojan Workout program this summer. We will have workouts twice a week, focusing on strength, speed, and agility. We would like to maximize participation to best develop our Jr Trojan athletes for this upcoming season. Even if you’re only in town for a couple weeks this summer, we welcome all players when they’re in town.
Hope to see you soon!

Registration for spring/fall football will be open by 3/23. Cost for fall will be $425. Payment options available upon registration. Some important notes for the 2018-19 season.
Spring football will be offered for rising 6-8th grades. It will be offered at NO COST to the players. This year it will be offered a bit differently than in the past. It will be for only 2 weeks this year (rather than 3) and it will consist of clinics. These clinics will be held at either Lassiter, Kell or Sprayberry HS. Locations will be determined closer to start date.
Spring will start on Monday 4/23 and end 5/4. Days will be M, W, Th and Fridays. Players are encouraged to attend all days that they can.
Equipment Distribution will be Sunday 4/22 from 12-2:00 for any player that has registered. This will be at LHS behind the home bleachers.
Effective this fall, LJTF will not be offering football or cheerleading for K-5. However, players are able to register with any other league that they choose. You do NOT have to be in that school district. There are some great options and are included the links below. There are options for both flag and tackle for the elementary boys.
***If any rising 5th graders would like to "play-up" with the 6th grade team please contact Jim English at 720-317-5116***
Youth Football Camp at LHS: week of 7/10
Middle School Football Camp at LHS: week of 7/16
Final Equipment Distribution: 7/22
Fall Football Starts: 7/23
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
