Our Tackle football program is open to any child located in Southeastern Wisconsin entering 1st-8th grade for the Fall 2020. Teams are based on grade level: 1st/2nd grade (combined), 3rd/4th grade (combined), 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade.
Every year we make every attempt possible to maintain a low fee for participation. For the 2020 season, we will maintain our $150 registration fee and $100 fundraising deposit for $250 in total. (Plus any applicable TeamSnap processing fees)
This year with the added impacts of the stay at home orders by the Governor, we understand more than ever, cost is of particular importance. To assist, we have implemented a payment plan option at registration. Only $50 will be due at time of intial registration, with $100 drawn on 7/15/2020 and the final $100 installment drawn on 8/15/2020.
Should you have particular hardship, where your player would like to participate but you're unable to pay the reduced deposit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in confidence. We as an organization believe every player has the right to play and we will make every attempt possible to ensure that every child that wants to play, can play.
At this time, we are scheduled to start the season as normal. However, should our season be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your registration deposit will be refunded in full, including TeamSnap processing fees. We will continue to keep you updated in the coming months as this situation evolves.

Starting with the 2020 season, all teams will maintain primary communications through the TeamSnap website and app tool. We have had great success with trial usage of this platform. It is great for understanding team schedules, communicating with teammates, sharing photos, etc.
Also of note, this is directly tied to your registration, for ease of information entry. If you had a player previously enrolled on this app in prior seasons, there is an option at the time of registration to carryover their information.
