Program FAQ

Lake Mary Pop Warner Football and Cheer FAQ – 2017 – What You Need to Know About Our Program

What is the cost of the program?  

Our program costs include a registration fee, team fee and a family fundraising commitment.    In addition, the family for each player is required to meet a volunteer commitment. 

Registration Cost:

The registration cost of the program is $300.00.    We have payment plans available to spread out the registration cost of the program.    Simply choose the payment plan option during the registration process.

For football, the cost includes your equipment rental (helmet, shoulder pads, practice jersey, game day uniform (home/away) to be returned at the end of the season.    Football participants to provide practice pants and cleats.   

For cheer, this includes your practice kit, game kit, socks and bows.   Cheer participants to provide sneakers (usually around $50.00).     Only the game kit is to returned at the end of the season.   

Team Fees:

There are team fees for each team which are given to the Team Mom   These generally run about $45.00 per participant and are used to help defray the cost for things like homecoming gifts for the participants, provide half-time fruit or other snack during games and ice/water for away games.    Team fees are subject to change and are determined at the beginning of the season.   They are due in full prior to the first game of the season.

Fundraising Commitment:

In the spirit of community outreach, each family in the Pop Warner Community is asked to commit to helping fundraise for the organization.    This helps us defray the annual cost of the fields for practice and games as well as replace equipment and uniforms as becomes necessary to protect the safety of our participants. 

For 2017, we are offering the following options to help each family meet their fundraising commitment:

A-      Sell 5 tickets to the Lake Mary 5K ($20.00 apiece)   

B-      Become a Member of the LMHS Booster Club.   Two levels of Membership are available – Gold and Silver.

Details for both of these fundraising opportunities are available on our Home Page under “Helpful Links” – see the links to Lake Mary 5K and Booster Club.

Volunteer Commitment:

Our Association and Pop Warner at all levels relies on volunteers to make the organization run smoothly and provide a quality program to all of its participants.    Your Coaches and Board Members give their time generously, most times more than 20 hours per week.     There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer.    We have opportunities available including the concession stand and chain gang (during the home games) as well as the organizing and cleaning of our “locker room” under the stadium prior to the season and at home games. 

 

Do you offer scholarships?    

We have a limited amount of money set aside in our budget for scholarships.    As the budget is limited, we do not offer full scholarships, only partial.   Partial scholarships allow us to assist more participants and are only available to help defray the registration cost.   

In addition, additional volunteer hours are expected to be committed to.     For example, a 50% scholarship would equal 10 hours of volunteering for the Association.   

If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please fill out an application for scholarship, which is available on our website on our Registration Info Page.  Simply scroll down the Scholarship Information area and click on the link to the applicaiton.     Please return for review no later than June 15, 2017.

 Waivers:

If you do not live in the Lake Mary boundary zone for Pop Warner (LINK HERE), you must have a waiver signed in order to play with us.    The most common waiver is the “Rosters Full” waiver.      Our Association does its best to assist with the signing of waivers, however, ultimately is the responsibility of the parent to ensure it is done.    If you have questions as to whether or not you are subject to a waiver, please email:   lmyfrareg@gmail.com with the address associated with your player and we will assist you in verifying the same.

 What is the time and practice commitment?

·        First practice will begin August 1st.

·        Each practice is 2 hours long.  

·        Practices are 5 days a week through Labor Day.   

·       After Labor Day, practices will be 3 days per week - exact days are determined annually.   Cheer and Football are subject to practice on different days – they do not always overlap.  

·       Attendance will be taken promptly at 530p.

·       For Tiny Mite and Mighty Mite - a parent or guardian must stay at every practice.   For Junior Pee Wee, Pee Wee and Junior Varsity teams, you must have a “responsible person” for your player in the event of a lightning delay. 

·       Generally, the practices for Tiny Mite and Mighty Mite will be held on the front practice fields at Lake Mary High School.    The practices for Junior Pee Wee, Pee Wee and Junior Varsity are held at the stadium.    Practice locations are subject to change based on events that take place at the high school throughout the season.    It is important to watch your email for these changes. 

·        Always assume we are practicing unless you are notified by a Team Mom or Coach.

·        We will practice in the rain. We will not practice if there is lightning. A lightning meter will be at every practice.

·       Team Snap or another sports application will be used to notify you if practice is cancelled.   It is important that you have your information updated in the program.

·       Attendance at every practice and game is mandatory. If you are going to be late or absent, please contact a Team Mom/Coach.    There is an Absentee form that must be signed by the parent and the head coach for each missed practice.

·         All players must complete 10 hours of conditioning before moving to pads.

·         All players must practice in pads for 10 hours before they will be allowed to participate in a scrimmage or game.
