It's Football Time in Charlotte!!
First practice is scheduled for Monday, July 21st at Charlotte Ballpark from 6-7:30 p.m.
Registrations are beig held under the pavillion that week for those who haven't registered yet. Please bring a copy of their birth certificate along with registration fee.
Please make sure to bring a drink and use the restroom prior to taking the field.
Cheerleading uniforms and Football equipment will be issued this week.
Our practice schedule is Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 pm-7:30 every week. Games are played on Saturdays, last year peewees started at 4 pm, Jr's 5 pm, Minors 6 pm and Majors 7 pm. I do not expect this to vary much this year but if it does I will post ASAP. Cheerleading will add in Friday practices once we begin practicing for Cheer Competition. This year competition is being held on October 18th. We do still practice during fall break, the girls are expected to attend as ususal unless they will be out of town on family vacation. In the event vacation is scheduled they will still be required to attend one of the two weeks of practice.
Registration for one child is $65, two children $120 and family of 3 or more is $180.
Cheerleading will have an additional $70 cheer package per child in which we will offer a fundraiser to help offset cost for those who participate. I have fundraiser cards to help offset this cost should you choose to participate. This fee will be due by August 8th in order to get items in before our first game. These package items include warm-up, shoes and hairbow that are required, these items will be yours to keep. Cheer uniforms and poms will be league issued with paid registration and returned at the end of the season.
IF YOUR CHEERLEADER HAS A WARM UP THAT STILL FITS FROM LAST YEAR, THE FEE WILL ONLY BE $30 FOR SHOES AND HAIRBOW
If you are interested in helping our organization in any way please let one of our directors or coaches know, we are always needing parents to help out during our many functions during the season, we look forward to a great Football and Cheerleading season!!
All Charlotte Lions Directors, Football and Cheer Coaches are tested and certified by the USA Football's Coaching Education Program. This program educates coaches, parents and young athletes about the nature, risk and symptoms of concussion and head injury. This is a program Tri-County has made available to every Organization this year to ensure the safety and well being of our youth is top priority. We look forward to working with parents in achieving this goal.
