2018 Sign up fee is lowered to $50.00.

This is all that is due at signups. Once practice starts a $15 concession stand fee is due for each player/cheerleader. This was adopted a couple years ago instead of soliciting food donations which became extremely hard to manage and to make it fair across the board.  It was voted on and decided to include at registration instead of hitting parents with an additional cost at the same time as our fundraising activities are going on during the season. There will be an additional table at signups

Additional Costs at Sign up:

If you are new to the organization, your player will need to have their jersey and pants ordered at signup.  If you have a returning player their existing jersey is fine to continue to use for this season, unless you need or desire to purchase new.

Finan Detail will be our vendor and have a table setup at signups for you to order these.  Below are the approximate prices:

Youth sized Jerseys               $35-$40

Adult sized Jerseys                $40-$45

All sizes Football Pants         $25

Optional:

Padded Undershirts w rib protection          $35

 

Please feel free to contact Finan Detail with any questions concerning uniform purchases.

Our organization prides itself with providing the best equipment to our players of any organization in the league.  We keep our helmets reconditioning up to date as well as have been purchasing quite a few new helmets over the past 3 years.  The standard helmet we purchase and provide in our equipment issue (June 23-24th) is the Schutt Recruit Hybrid+.  Click here for info on this helmet

We are offering parents the option to purchase their player their own helmet.  We worked out a deal with our supplier to offer this at our organization’s cost.  And with that, you can order the same standard helmet we use for our teams listed above or one of the better, higher end models listed below.  There is a couple week lead time on the helmets so if interested, it would be best to get order in soon.  Also, for everyone’s ease, payment can be made to our organization via cash, check or credit/debit card.  If by check, order will be placed once check clears.  Any questions please email to tunkjrtigersfootball@gmail.com.

This is our suggested preseason workout to acclimate our young players before practice starts.  On the sheet it suggests to start 2-3 weeks before practice starts, but this is the minimum, please feel free to have your player do this (perhaps participate yourself!) at anytime from now till July.
