New Info about the Weighin's !!!!

 

Guys
 
Our days left until the first weigh in week end are dwindling fast  so I want to re-send this email not to brow beat anyone, but as a reminder for all. Please remember also, ALL players must be certified, even if they are a PEEWEE designated lineman, (the only linemen that can be DL'ed), they MUST show up with their registration form and picture to be stamped.   I am attaching the updated weigh in places and times  AND a set of updated rules.
 
Just wanted to take a few moments to remind you all of weigh in procedures and procedural changes that are being implemented in the league this year.
 
I have attached the 2015 weigh in places and times in excel format, addresses are included. You MUST have your players weighed by the end of the day on August 29 to qualify as an eligible player. You may still register players until your first game as always, but, after August 29 all players in each age group weighed in will have to wear numbers 50 thru 79 and not be eligible, regardless of weight. Also, AFTER the last weigh in date, (August 29th), if they are within 5 pounds of the age/weight limit for each group they must play up one group. If you have a player that knows in advance they can not make the 22nd OR the 29th weigh in, contact me with their Name, age,  phone number and  I will call them, and make arrangements to get them weighed sometime between August 17th and August 29th.
 
 We have purchased new calibrated legal for commerce scales and checked them against our older sets that are still in operation. No set was over  or under, all read the same.. Have at least two, (2)  copies of your roster, hand one copy to the weighing officer and have someone to stand close to listen and record your weights on your copy for once the players are weighed and the weight recorded on the copy you gave the weighing officer,  that copy will not be handed back to you. Have your players lined up in the order of the roster that you give the weighing officer with their registration form in hand and their picture stapled onto it. Have each player in the gear you want them to be weighed in as once they step on the scales the weight is what it is. The registration form and picture will be stamped and handed back to the player or your designate. Have your parents and all persons not needed by you to assist record weights and or direct players stand back so the weigh in officers can better do their work. It going to be hot and noisy so please be considerate. No player will be weighed without their registration form and picture to stamp. Lets all work together and make this a great season for our youth. 

Thank you for caring about our youth.
