Tahoma junior football, cheer registration underway

Registration is open for Tahoma Bears Junior Football and Cheer.

There are some exciting changes this season, highlighted by formation of a new league that has a full 10-game schedule for each team. League officials anticipate there will be a new artificial turf practice facility for the football and cheer program at Ravensdale, which will be open no later than September 1.

Teams will have roster limits in place to ensure adequate playing time for each player. Players will be placed on a first come, first served basis. Once a roster limit is reached for a grade level, a waiting list will be used and when possible there will be more than one team at a grade level.

The teams will be separated by grade: grades 1-2; grades 3-4; grade 5; grade 6; grades 7-8.

The registration fee for the 2014 season is $300. It covers, helmet, shoulder pads, practice jersey, insurance, league fees and facility rentals. Fully paid registration is required by July 15 (register by June 15 and save 10 percent) and before a player will be able to participate in the first practice, which is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 4.

In addition, there will be a $100 uniform fee that will cover two new custom game jerseys and socks. Each player will be allowed to keep his game jerseys at the end of the season. Players will need to have their own cleats and mouth guard by the first practice.

There is an additional $100 equipment deposit required at the time of equipment check-out (fully refundable).
