TJYAA 2024 Tackle Football

Our 2024 Football season is here! Thanks for joining us!

8U
9U
10U
11U
12U

To keep the costs down for athletes, we operate as a non-profit organization, using volunteers only. We can not do this without the help of the community. At the end of registration, it will ask if you would like to volunteer! Please consider joining us this season as either a coach or a team mom/dad!

Our season will run from July-November
We practice 4x a week (Monday-Thursday) prior to the start of school, once school begins we drop down to 3x a week (Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) 
Our official season start date is July 27th, as we get closer, expect more emails for up to date timelines. 
We will also hold a speed and agility training starting June 17th- july 26th. This is open to the public free of charge. We will hold this at Thomas Johnson High School. Coach Rusty and volunteers will take the kids through a list of speed and agility based drills. Look for this on the tjyaa.com

We practice at GTJHS on the practice field behind the football stadium
We are working with the high school now to have home games on the GTJHS Turf for the 2024 season. 


Please stay tuned for official emails regarding optional camps we will hold throughout the summer, meet the board night, meet the coaches night, and equipment handouts. See tjyaa.com for more details. 

Members are required to: 
Sign parent code of conduct (Linked at bottom of this document)
Sign athlete code of conduct (Linked at bottom of this document)
Obtain Physicals from your physician, to be turned in at equipment hand out 
Turn in 3 deposit checks for fundraising ($100), equipment ($150), and volunteer ($100) at equipment hand out. All deposit checks remain uncashed and are returned at the end of the season upon completion of required volunteer hours, fundraising, and equipment return. For each athlete, a parent or guardian (or other arranged member), must volunteer at least 1 home game for either : chains, field set up, spotter, concession stand, apparel stand, or ticket sales, etc. 

We have a "no exceptions" rule for these deposit checks. We understand not everyone has checks. Please discuss options with your bank prior to the start of the season so your athletes maintain eligibility status. Your athlete may not get their equipment, or begin practice without turning in these 3 checks as well as the physical. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT MONEY ORDERS OR CASH.

ID cards are required and they will be $10 for a one year or $20 for a two year, at the beginning of the season(if you bought a card in 2023, you will be good for the dates listed on that card) - you will turn in your birth certificate and $10/$20 into the league, at weigh ins, and you will be given an ID card. Coaches will keep the ID cards through the season and the ID will be checked before each game.
  
Athletes must be equipped by the beginning of the season with the following: 
Cleats 
Mouthguard
Cup 
1 integrated football pant in the colors NAVY BLUE for games (these may also be worn at practice, or you may obtain additional pairs for practice of any color) 
Practice Jersey (any color) 
Football socks 
Water bottle 
(LINK TO AMAZON)

Any athlete who comes to practice without the items mentioned above may not practice . Athletes may wear any color football pants and practice jersey for practice. We recommend getting multiple mouthguards and cups as they seem to be the items that are misplaced the most. 

What we provide: 
Game Jersey 
Shoulder pads
Helmet 

THE FOLLOWING MUST BE TURNED IN - IN PERSON, and signed with INK (not electronically) :

We have a wonderful partnership with Ft. Detrick Youth Services. They provided us with their own physical and health screening assessments for you. PLEASE BE SURE THAT ON THE PHYSICAL, UNDER THE "PARTICIPANT RECOMMENDATIONS" SECTION, THEY ARE CLEARED FOR SPORTS, AND THE BOX IS CHECKED TO INSURE CLEARANCE. Secondly, due to the differences in terminology between us as Ft. Detrick, any time you see the word "sponsor" on the forms such as "sponsor name" that means PARENT NAME and you will fill that out as yourself. These forms are provided to us. However, a form from your doctor is satisfactory. 







We are looking for coaches for every team, so when you sign your child up to play, if you're so inclined, fill out a coaches form as well. Coach Rusty and Coach Aaron look forward to speaking with you about becoming coaches for the 2024 season!!! 

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]


We appreciate you so much!
