Good Afternoon Comet Parents!
We’ve received Comets Coaches Commitment forms from all Head Coaches. Most teams have locked in all of their asst coaches based upon actual needs and helmet count. Because we don’t have a full helmet count yet on what team sizes are going to be at present for a couple teams, we hope to know much more after our final equipment fitting 6/21/22.
A few parents have inquired about purchasing helmets. Unfortunately Riddell cannot ship helmets in time for the season, nor any more reconditioned ones. So I have reached out to Zenith again with hopes of them coming thru. We may even have extra helmets based upon the large order processed in 2021, and our early 2022 return for reconditioning.
IF YOU OWN YOUR OWN HELMET….it must have been certified LAST year (2021) to be eligible for this season. IF NOT, it will not be allowed until re-certification is completed.
EARLY REGISTRATION ended on 5/30/22. Since that date we’ve recvd quite a few more.
If online registration is incomplete or pending, it must completed before equipment fitting NEXT Tuesday 6/14/22. As of this afternoon, there are 23 pending registrations. If you haven’t recvd confirmation that yours was completed, you should probably check asap.
The only changes in 2022 registration are a few that include Parents Volunteer Agreement and Coaches Code of Conduct and Requirements forms. Please review carefully on the website or during registration, and please don’t hesitate to ask questions. Teams with low numbers but yet eligible to play (15 players), may require a few extra volunteers or fewer home games. We will review this as it gets closer to starting.
If you know of any NEW families and kids in our area, please don’t hesitate to share this or any upcoming information ASAP as the custom uniform order will be done in 2 weeks from today.
We’re still looking for a few additional players in 8th grade (2022 FALL enrollment). This is key for all teams to have enough players (15) well before we start. Eighteen is certainly the preferred number but we will work to achieve at least the minimum at first. If we cannot get enough, our options are very limited. We even have a finder’s fee for new players added to this team.
The 1st/2nd, and 3rd/4th grade levels may have two teams based on early projections. If so, we would split these teams as equal as possible in a draft process with players and coaches.
