2021 FOOTBALL INFORMATION

Registration Fees:

The registration fees are used to cover most of the various expenses for the football season. The breakdown of the fees are as follows:

2021 Registration total: $300.00

Raffle $60
Our raffle fundraiser is a MANDATORY part of every players participation (30 tickets valued at $2 each). Our raffle fundraiser is our way of helping parents recoup some of the investment of registration if you choose to sell them.The money raised from selling the tickets is your's to keep as reimbursement for the up-front payment you made during registration. Altern
atively, you may choose
 to keep some or even  all of the raffles  so that you have multiple entries to put into the drawing.  The raffle drawing usually occurs in the beginning of the season and is noted on the ticket. Winners will be announced via social media ( Facebook, website,etc.)

Spirit Fee $25
The spirit fee from registration is submitted to each team manager per player towards the purchase of spirit items decided for the season.

Other cost: $215
The remaining funds are to purchase uniforms, field/park maintenance, start of season association fees, equipment, and game day expenses.

Team Volunteers – Every weekend that your team plays at home, your team mom will be required to schedule parent volunteers to cover the following areas: 

  • THREE volunteers to work in the concession stand for the 90 minutes PRIOR to all home games. Your team's shift will begin an hour and 45 minutes prior to your game's start time and end 15 minutes prior to the start of your game.
  • THREE volunteers for chain gang DURING your game.
  • ONE volunteer to announce your game

Please be prepared to volunteer for your team at least once during the season.

Birth Certificates

If you have not submitted an original birth certificate that has been certified by DAA then you will need to bring an original, raised seal birth certificate and a copy of that birth certificate to walk up registration or the first day of evaluations. This is for players that are NEW to Dacula Football and for any returning player who did NOT play the previous season. Returning players from the 2019 season should already be on file. The team manager for the current season will notify you if a new birth certificate is needed for certification. We will review your original, stamp the copy to verify that we have seen the original and return your original birth certificate back to you immediately. We will keep the new, stamped copy on file as long as you play each consecutive season in Dacula. If you do not play one season, your files are shredded and you will need to resubmit your player's birth certificate for certification when he returns to our park to play. WE ONLY KEEP CERTIFICATION RECORDS FROM THE PREVIOUS SEASON!

Physicals
You MUST bring a completed physical signed by an MD, DO, NP or PA to evaluations (see below in the links box). If your age group is not having evaluations you will need to bring it on the first day of practice. We will typically have a "Dacula Physical Day" during the summer after the last walk-up registration.  The physical MUST be an original with an inked signature - no copies are accepted and no stamped signatures are accepted. 

If your physical is completed by your doctor on another form it must specifically say “cleared for football” and you will need to attach the GFL physical to the front of it and fill out the parent section. This is the parent’s responsibility to take care of. Your child WILL NOT be allowed on the field for practice or games without their physical form on file. NO EXCEPTIONS. If your child's physical is not turned in prior to the last certification date, your child will not be able to participate in Dacula football for the 2020 season. Keep in mind DAA has a strict NO REFUND policy.

"Baseline" Concussion Testing

GFL is requiring ALL Middle School athletes to take the "Baseline" Concussion Test . This is an important and MANDATORY test that can be taken at home.
