FAMILY CONTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS & DEPOSIT

The Lutz Chiefs is a non-profit organization completely run by volunteers. We need your help to make our organization a success. It is expected that parents/guardians will contribute time to the organization throughout the season.  The athlete‚Äôs family is responsible for (3 spring, 5 fall) contribution shifts to the organization per athlete prior to the completion of the season.  To insure this occurs, the family will provide a $100 deposit check which will only be cashed should the family fail to meet the required shifts.  Once the family has met this requirement, the check will be returned. 

Please see the Family Contribution Requirements page for more information about how you can help out. 

 
REGISTRATION PROCESS

Step 1 - Online Registration
To register online click the REGISTER button at the top of the page or select an item below.

After you submit your registration, you will need to join BAND. The invite for our groups will be provided in your registration confirmation email. We use BAND for our communication, so its vital to keeping up-to-date regarding registration, practices, games, etc.

Step 2 - Gather Your Paperwork
You'll need the following before registration can continue:

- 2021 Player/Participant Contract
- 2021 Physical/Medical Release Form
- Original (or Certified Copy) Birth Certificate  
- COVID-19 Waiver/Disclosure

- Last Year's Report Card

See the Registration Paperwork page for more details.

Step 3 - Athlete Physical
Bring your athlete to a qualified physician for a sports physical. The doctor/nurse practitioner will need to complete and sign page 2 of the Physical/Medical Release Form. The physician MUST complete either the Pop Warner or FHSAA physical form. All other forms (e.g. Florida School Entry Health Exam) will NOT be accepted.

Step 4 - Attend Registration Session
After you've gathered all your paperwork, bring those documents, your $100 volunteer deposit check and your athlete to one of our in-person Registration Sessions. See BAND for dates/times. At this Registration Session, you'll turn in your paperwork, we'll take your athlete's picture for his registration card and your athlete will be measured for equipment (football only).
Your athlete's legal guardian who registered them MUST be present at the registration session. 


Step 5 - Clearance to Practice
Once all your paperwork and volunteer deposit has been submitted, verified, and your balance paid (or you're on a Payment Plan), your athlete will be cleared to participate. 

If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact Amy Lancaster, Compliance Director, at [email protected].


EQUIPMENT DISTRIBUTION (FOOTBALL ONLY)

Included in your registration fees, is the use of a certified NOCSAE football helmet, shoulder pads, practice pants, a practice jersey and game-day uniform(s). This equipment will be fitted and issued to your athlete at the beginning of the season during Equipment Distribution and must be returned after the last game at Equipment Return. You must provide a $275 deposit before any equipment/uniform is issued. NO EXCEPTIONS. It is greatly preferred that the equipment deposit be in the form of a check. Credit card deposits will be accepted, but there are hefty fees associated with refunding these (read the Terms and Conditions during registration) so we'd prefer you provide a check that doesn't get deposited. Your deposit check will be returned to you at the end of the season when you return the borrowed equipment.

Spring Equipment Distribution will be held on Saturday, February 27th.

Fall Equipment Distribution will held on Saturday, July 31st.  

Your athlete will be assigned a fitting appointment time based on when they registered, with priority given to returning athletes.  Please make every effort to make it to Equipment Distribution. If you miss this event, your athlete will need to be fitted during practice. This is a big disruption to your team's practice and will cut into your athlete's 10 hour conditioning requirement.
