YPAC is a non-profit, pay-to-play organization and we do not make any profit from our registration fees. Therefore, we do not have funding nor are we able to provide any “upfront” financial assistance to families. If you need financial assistance, we do offer a way for you to “earn” up to $50.00 of your registration fees back throughout the year. This is completely up to you and you must pay in full upfront! Any parent/guardian who volunteers to work during our home games in either the concession stand or taking money at the entrance gate will be paid $10.00 for each FULL game worked not to exceed $50 total for the season. (one check per person will be cut after the last home game). YPAC will ensure 4 spots per game are available (3 games a day=12 spots per home game) for those wanting to earn some money back. Sign-ups will be on a first come-first served basis for each home game. You can always work as a non-paid volunteer also! We certainly will not turn away help! So if you register on-time for $100 you could earn up to $50 back!!!
MANDATORY EVENTS AFTER REGISTERING
There are two MANDATORY events that at least one parent and the player must attend before being able to practice.
Event #1 – Equipment Issue: June 27 (Saturday) / 3 – 7 p.m. @ the HS cafeteria. This date is for equipment issue (Helmet, pads, practice uniform), measurement for game uniform, birth certificate & physical turn in. We will have cleats to swap. Come anytime between 3-7 p.m. If you miss this meeting, your registration will be changed to a “Late Registration” and you will need to pay an additional $40 ($140 total) because your uniform will not be ordered and will need to be placed as a special order. It could delay you being able to play since you will not have a uniform. If you register and are unable to attend this date, YPAC needs to know in advance so arrangements can be made to at least measure your player for their game uniform before June 27.
Event #2 – Parent / Player briefing: Jul 7 (Tues) / 6:30 p.m. @ the HS cafeteria during the first official practice! (Players will start practice at 6pm, parents will go to the cafeteria and sign in) This event is critical for your family, player and guests who attend practice or games. It is intended to clearly inform you of the games rules, YPAC/GNCKYFL rules of behavior, practice schedules, injury protocol, player safety and parent/player expectations. You will meet YPAC staff and coaches this night. If you miss this briefing, you cannot participate in practice until the Athletic Director or Board President cover these topics with you and your player! ***Please make this briefing or ensure one parent or guardian can***
