PINELLAS PARK T-BIRDS

FLAG FOOTBALL INFORMATION

 

Welcome to the 2019 Pinellas Park T-Bird football season!  This is a large commitment you and your child are about to undertake.  Our goal is to make your season with the T-Birds a fun-filled learning experience.   

 

What to expect this season:

You will be required to purchase a Football package (2019 Price - $120.00 for Flag)  

 

You will need to purchase cleats (non-metal, non-screw) for the football players to wear AT ALL TIMES.

 

ALL PACKAGES MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY  (TBA), OR FOOTBALL PLAYER WILL NOT RECEIVE THEIR FLAG PACKAGE AND WILL NOT PLAY.   If you need to make payments, they can be made at any registration date before season starts and up to (TBA)  

 

Sizing Dates:

We will size for gear during May and June Registrations. If you register prior to that, please make sure you come back for sizing or we cannot guarantee gear in time for season opening.

 

Starting Date, Practice nights and games:

The season will start on Monday, July 10, 2019.  We will be practicing Monday – Wednesday for the first two weeks, from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m. 

Come prepared and ready to learn! 

 

There will be a MANDATORY parent meeting on (TBD).   Please come to the field and go to the AWAY bleachers (covered).  There will be a lot of information covered, so please adjust your schedules.

 

It is at this time that you will need to let your coordinators know if your child has any siblings playing FLAG as well.  We will do our best to keep your children on the same teams.  All other children will be divided by ages.

 

All flag games and practices are held at Davis Field.  The practices and games are (TBD).  Any make-up games are held after season.  A game schedule will be handed out before the first game.

How to be prepared:

Please make sure your children are ready for practices.  This means DRESS APPROPRIATELY –

  • Mouthpieces are required at all times.
  • Gym shorts of any kind.  NO JEANS or Sweat pants in the summer heat. 
  • T-shirts or tank tops are fine.  .
  • No jewelry of any kind. 
  • Please make sure your child has plenty of water for practices.

 

Summer practices are HOT.  Please be sure to send your child with plenty to drink or provide something from the concession stand.

 

As parents, you will be required to volunteer in our concession stand and participate in all league/team fundraisers.  This is a non-profit organization and the responsibility falls on all of us to do our part.

 

Besides practices and games, we will be participating in additional activities which may include but not be limited to spirit week, dances, homecoming events, family night, skating parties, and much more.

 

Participating in Football is a big commitment by the player and parent.  Your child is part of a team and is making the commitment to himself and his teammates.   Parents and Players will be asked to sign a participation contract so that they understand the commitment and rules of our organization.

 

What other costs are there? 

In addition to Registration and Football Packages, there are other costs that you may incur over season.  The examples below are not all inclusive, but to give you an idea.

Entrance to Saturday games  $4  (There is no entry cost for flag games during the week.)
