Participation in RAAA tackle football is grades 3rd – 6th. Cost to participate is $75.00 as well as a $25.00 Jersey fee. The Jerseys are multi-year, which means they can be used as long as they fit as they are yours to keep.
A separate deposit check of $150.00 made out to RAAA is also required when picking up equipment. (Deposit check destroyed upon return of equipment.)
Practices are Tuesday/Thursdays 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. - 3rd grade players play only against each other in house, meaning not against any other communities. They do suit up but have limited contact in a very controlled setting. 4th grade players will progress by playing other 4th grade teams in controlled scrimmages when available. 5th and 6th grade players are divided equally and combined into teams and will play games against other communities. Games and league are TBD.
Practices will take place at the Middle School Fields to begin each season, as we get into September we will move practices to the high school complex which are often referred to as Stadium (turf) and Fields #5 and #6 (Grass fields) behind the Stadium.
Our official season will begin August 17th and continue thru October 14th*, practicing every Tues / Thurs. Deadline to register is August 30th. A $25.00 late fee will be assessed to all registrants beginning on August 31st.
