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.  Each athlete’s family is responsible for 3 spring/5 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 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 check-out 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 (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 $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 (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 make it to Equipment Distribution, so mark your calendars! Your athlete will NOT be fitted during practice time.

Fall Tackle Equipment Distribution will held on Saturday, July 30th, 2022.  

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.
