We are offering Flag Football for the Fall

July 29, 2020

After speaking with Henry County Parks & Rec and other parks in the area, we have come to an agreement that kids need sports to help take their minds off the stress of the current situation.  We all agree that Flag Football is a safer alternative to Tackle Football at this time.  We will take every precaution possible to help ensure the safety of players, coaches, volunteers and our families. Only 50 people will be allowed in the park during each game and social distancing will be enforced.  There will be a break between each game to allow the parks to clear out so the new group may enter.

We will be offering 5 on 5 flag for ages 5 to 17 girls and boys.  We will have an extra volunteer on the field to sanitize the balls and flags after each play.  The season will run from early September, first game on 9/19 through November, last game on 11/7.  The cost for the season will be $130.00 and that will include flags and uniforms.  This cost will also cover insurance, league fees, referees, impact fees  and covid cleaning fees to make sure parks and restrooms are kept sanitized and social distancing/people limits are enforced.

Please understand that there will be guidelines that have to be followed by all of us to make this successful and we will do everything in our power to make this a great Flag Football season and your support will be greatly appreciated. It is going to take all of us to make this work.

Registration will begin tomorrow morning 7/30 online only.  Please click this link to register.


***Refunds will be mailed out on Monday 7/20.  If you prefer to pick yours up prior to mailing, we will be at the field Saturday 7/18 from 9:30am-10:30am***

 

It is with great sadness that we announce there will be no 2020 LGFCA football or cheer season.

Everyone that has paid will receive a full refund. 

This was decided by the Board of Directors today with a unanimous vote. This was a tough decision and was not made lightly.  We wanted to make sure this decision was made prior to ordering uniforms so that everyone would receive a full refund.  With the decline in the number of players across our league and the ongoing COVID-19 spikes we feel this is safest option for all of our players, families, coaches and volunteers. 

Please stay safe and we hope to see everyone in the Spring of 2021!!

Prepare for your Virtual Fitting!

 

 

Hi Falcons Cheer parents!

 

We are having an unusual year and unfortunately aren’t able to do an in person fitting. However, we are doing virtual fittings with all schools and rec cheer programs and these have been great so far!

 

Varsity's Fitting Pass has been updated to provide for a friendly user experience for athletes and parents!  Now, when an athlete logs into Fitting Pass, they'll be able to easily view a video tutorial on how to take proper measurements, AND Fitting Pass will collect their measurements, AND will share recommended sizes for the athlete!  

 

Please have your athletes (parents) log in and create a profile and enter their measurements into Fitting Pass.

 

Watch this video that shows you how the fitting app works:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=908cGzqlFPs&list=PLqqlqEmgGyAgc61lRm25y5RTUomqdMW8n&index=25&t=0s

 

Athletes and Parents can follow these 4 Easy Steps:  

1.       Log in to Fitting Pass http://fitting.varsity.com/HQW3wi

2.       Create Your Profile [Select Female/Male | New or Returning Team Member]

3.       Enter Your Measurements [Select ADULT/YOUTH for Size Type]-If your child typically is in youth sizes or was in youth last year select youth.

4.       Check Out Your Suggested Sizes and Select Your Sizes!  

Tips: Have fabric measuring tape on hand (or go to a seamstress) and watch this video to ensure you are completing everything correctly. 😊 Also, if your child cheered last year and has a Varsity uniform, please put it on her. Ex: if it fits great and she is in a D-11 but needs an extra inch on the skirt, order a D-12 and so on. If the skirt buttons but is tight, go up one size. Feel free to text me Mon-Fri 9am-5pm. I am here to help with anything you need! 😊

 

Kind Regards,

Jenn McPherson

Biography

Charlie Jackson is in his second season with the Falcons as Defensive Assistant/Defensive Backs Coach. His professional coaching background includes multiple defensive coaching roles with the Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos and coaching fellowships with the Falcons and St. Louis Rams. He also served as a college scout for the Seattle Seahawks organization. He has collegiate experience at Colorado, UCLA, Utah State, Buffalo, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and as an executive in the College Football Rules Enforcement Group at the NCAA National Headquarters.

Jackson was a Commissioned Officer in the United States Air Force before entering the coaching arena. He ascended to the rank of Captain while being stationed more than four years at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida and Los Angeles Air Force Base, California. His duties included serving as the U.S. Government point man in negotiations with three foreign government agencies in support of international treaty agreements.

Jackson was a defensive back at the United States Air Force Academy as a student-athlete, and he competed two years on the Air Force Academy’s indoor track and field team. Following his senior football season, Jackson was selected by his teammates as a permanent team captain and recipient of Air Force football’s highest honor, the Brian Bullard Award, as the player who displays unselfishness, pride in his role, total team commitment, and 110 percent effort. Jackson helped Air Force become a consistent member of the Top 25 national rankings including a Top 10 final ranking and conference championship in 1998. At one point during his tenure, Air Force produced major college football’s longest winning streak (11 games).

Originally from Montezuma, Georgia, Jackson is a 1995 graduate of Macon County High School. As a football player at Macon County, he was a First-Team All-Area, All-Middle Georgia, and All-State football player. He was selected Georgia Region 1A Football Player of the Year and Georgia Class-A Football Defensive Player of the Year. He was also named to the Georgia Academic All-State football team for all classifications.

Jackson graduated with a bachelor’s degree in management from the United States Air Force Academy. He earned a master’s degree in management and sports studies from California State University, Long Beach.
