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.

Spring Equipment Distribution will be held on Saturday, February 26th, 2022.

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

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 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.  

Registration Process

REGISTRATION PROCESS

Step 1 - Register Online & Pay Fees
(1) Click the REGISTER button at the top of the page or select an item below.
(2) Create an account or login with your existing account.
(3) If you're registering a new athlete, add participant information.
(4) Select the applicable program(s) and complete the questions/waivers.
(5) Sign-up to volunteer as Team Parent or Coach (optional). Please do not proceed with any of the volunteer requirements until your role has has been confirmed by the Lutz Chiefs Board. Filling out this form does NOT guarantee you that role. For more information on how you can get involved with Chiefs, click here.
(6) Complete your order by paying registration fees.


Step 2 - Join BAND
This is a very important step! We use the BAND platform for most all of our communication, so its vital for keeping up-to-date regarding registration, practices, games, events, etc. See your registration confirmation email for the invites to our private BAND groups.

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.

Note: if your athlete plans to participate in our Fall Program, please WAIT until Pop Warner National releases their 2022 form so you don't have to get another one.


Returners from 2021 Fall Tackle Football may use their 2021 Physical form for Spring Tackle as long as it hasn't expired. ALL Football and Cheerleaders will need 2022 Physicals before they can participate in Summer/Fall Programs. 

Step 4 - Gather Your Paperwork
You'll need the following documentation turned-in before your athlete will be allowed to participate. 

- 2022 Player/Participant Contract (Fall Tackle returners may use their 2021 contract for Spring Tackle)
- 2022 Physical/Medical Release Form (see above step)
- Original (or Certified Copy) Birth Certificate (New athletes only)  
- 2020-2021 Final Report Card (Spring Season Only)
- 2021-2022 Final Report Card (Fall Season Only)


See the Registration Paperwork page for more details.

Step 5 -Turn-in Paperwork
After you've gathered all your paperwork, bring those documents and your $100 volunteer deposit check (if applicable) to one of our in-person Registration Sessions held every Friday night during our UA Flag Football games (01/07/2022 through 02/25/2022). You can also turn-in your paperwork during Equipment Distribution on 02/26/2026, but it'll be faster/easier if you've already submitted everything. If you're missing any items during Equipment Distribution, you will not be allowed to take the equipment home with you until all items are turned in.

Fall Registration Sessions will be announced later in the year. 


Step 6 - Clearance to Practice
Once all your paperwork and volunteer deposit has been submitted, verified, and your balance paid, your athlete will be cleared to participate. 

If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please send an email to [email protected].
