NC DMV Identification Cards
Our league has implemented a certification process that includes NC DMV ID cards. The Craven Jaguars requires all 15U, 12U, 10U, 8U & 6U players to obtain a NC DMV ID card for the 2015 Season. Military IDs are accepted. IDs are not required to start the practice season on July 27th. There is a 2 week turn around for ID cards. No player will be able to play in games without an ID card. This process aids in ensuring proper uniformity with certification for all associations within our league. Another advantage of using ID cards is the safety factor. Should a child ever get lost, all the identifying information on the ID card can be in any police car & Amber alert system in America in less than 2 minutes!
