Commitment: Upper Merion Youth Football and Cheer is a team sport whereas full and equal participation of each team/squad member is crucial to creating a positive, productive and safe experience for ALL participants. All participants are expected to be present, arriving on time, to each practice, game and/or performance. Consequently, the absence of one player or cheerleader impacts the safety and success of the entire team. Proper notification and adherence to attendance policy procedures is expected.
The purpose of this policy, as detailed below, is to create the most safe and successful experience for every UM Youth Football Player and Cheerleader.
- MANDATORY PRACTICE begins the week of August 1st, 2016 with 4 days of practice each week until school begins.
- Once the school year begins, practice days/times/hours are determined by the organization and coaches.
Attendance at all practices is MANDATORY
Games begin Labor Day Weekend - every team member is expected to attend.
During the season games are scheduled on either Saturday or Sunday. The schedule is set by the Pop Warner Football BuxMont League and released in mid/late August.
