Learn to Play athletes will not be issued tackle football equipment; however, they will receive a uniform they will be able to keep at the end of the season.

5 year-olds may choose between our Learn to Play Tackle program and our competitive 6U Tackle Football.

FAMILY CONTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS & VOLUNTEER DEPOSIT/BUY-OUT

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.  Each athlete‚Äôs family is responsible for 2 spring and 3 fall contribution shifts per athlete to be completed prior to the end of the season.  To insure this occurs, the family will provide a $100/$150 (Spring/Fall) deposit check (per athlete) 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. If you cannot contribute your time, you have the option during registration to buy-out your volunteer obligation.

See the Family Contribution Requirements page for more information about what is expected and how you can help out. 


EQUIPMENT DISTRIBUTION & DEPOSIT (TACKLE FOOTBALL ONLY)

Included with 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 $300 deposit before any equipment/uniform is issued. NO EXCEPTIONS. It is greatly preferred that the equipment deposit be in the form of a check (see the Terms and Conditions during registration for more about credit-card deposit fees). Your deposit check will be returned to you at the end of the season when you return the borrowed equipment. 

It is very important you attend to Equipment Distribution, so mark your calendars! Your athlete will NOT be fitted during practice time and is not allowed to practice without a helmet.

Spring Tackle Equipment Distribution will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024.  
Fall Tackle Equipment Distribution will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2024.  


CHEER UNIFORM DEPOSIT (COMPETITION CHEER ONLY)

You must provide a $100 deposit check before your athlete will receive their cheer competition uniform. You will receive this deposit check back at the conclusion of the season when you return the uniform.


WAITLIST POLICY

We have strict limits on how many athletes can be on each roster (per Pop Warner) and how many total athletes we can field at our facility (per Hillsborough County); therefore, once a roster is full it will go on a waitlist. 

As long as registration is open, you can still register your athlete for a waitlisted team. No money is due at time of registration. 

Waitlist activations are on a first come first serve basis with priority given to returners, those who live in our exclusive zone, those with active siblings and those who are affiliated with Lutz Baseball/Rangers Soccer/Lutz RISE Flag.

If a spot opens on a roster and you are next in line, you will receive a Waitlist Activation email (sent to the primary registration account). You will have 1-week to pay your registration fees, see the payment deadlines above. If you do not pay the required registration fees within 1-week, your registration will be cancel and the next athlete in line will be activated.
