Continual unexcused absences could result in a one (1) game suspension. Any player that has been suspended from school will not be allowed to participate in any Lower Loudoun Boys Football activity, including practices and games. If transportation is a problem for your child, please contact the coach or other parents on the team.
EQUIPMENT – Equipment will be issued following the draft at the discretion of the equipment manager. Each team will be notified regarding the date for each teams their equipment pickup times will be provided to the head coach at the draft. Registration fees must be paid and all required information received (birth certificate and physical for late registrants) in order for a player to be issued equipment. The league will provide all the necessary equipment with the exception of a practice pants, practice socks and football cleats. Each player must provide these. THE SHOES MUST BE ONES WITH MOLDED RUBBER SOLES OR RUBBER COATED SCREW ON CLEATS – CLEATS WITH EXTERIOR METAL SHOWING ARE PROHIBITED. CLEAT SIZE WILL BE LIMITED TO NO MORE THAN ½” IN LENGTH.

NOTE: Parents will be held liable for all equipment including any damage to pants and jerseys by bleach or improper care. By signing the attached application, you acknowledge your responsibility for returning all equipment at the end of the season. You will have one (1) week after the last game of the season to return your equipment (including the game jersey) or you will be billed for the full replacement cost based on the following prices:
Helmet $125.00, Shoulder Pads $100.00 (max.), Hip, thigh & knee pads $35.00, Game pants $60.00, and Game Jersey $100.00.
In the event that you do not return your equipment in good condition (ie; bleached or faded pants and jersey) or pay the full replacement cost, the total cost will be added to the next year’s registration fee and must be paid before your child is officially registered.
NOTE: Intentional altering of game jerseys or replacement of facemasks on helmets will not be permitted. Any violation of the above rule will result in full replacement cost billed to the parents and the player will not be able to participate.
GAME UNIFORMS – Game uniforms will be distributed at the discretion of the individual coaches prior to the start of the regular season.
VOLUNTEER DUTY – You will be assigned from time to time to work in our snack bar, work the gate and chains or work in the press box along with other parents on your team or even volunteer to be team mother or team father. We realize this is difficult for some parents’ due to other obligations; however we simply cannot pay the expenses of the league without the help of every parent. If you would like to opt-out of volunteering, you may pay and additional $200 along with registration.
FUNDRAISERS – Each player will be responsible for selling discount cards as our league fundraiser unless the parent chooses to opt-out of participating and pay an additional fee of $120.00 along with registration. This does not excuse you from snack bar, gate & chains or any other duty as required of every parent. Again, if you would like to opt-out of volunteering, you may pay the additional $200 on top of registration. The cost of purchasing equipment, insurance and maintaining our facility is enormous. If your child does not fully participate in the fundraisers, he/she could be withheld from participation until such time that the financial obligation for the fundraiser is met. Remember, the success of our program depends on the help of everyone. The only other alternative is to significantly raise the registration fees.
