Our Tackle football program is open to any child located in Southeastern Wisconsin entering 1st-8th grade for the Fall 2023. 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 2023 season, the cost will be $350 in total. (plus applicable TeamSnap processing fees) As in prior years, this amount will include 15) $10 raffle tickets used for our sporting goods gift card raffle throughout the season. You may feel these to defray the total cost of your registration. For more details on this raffle, please see our fundraising page.
We understand that cost is of particular importance. To assist, we have implemented two payment options for your convenience:
- Payment in full at the time of registration
- Installment Plan: Payment of a $50 deposit at the time of registration with 3 additional $100 monthly installment payments, automatically scheduled based on your method of payment with deposit.
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.

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.
