Good Afternoon Comet Parents
The chart below indicates where the most recent helmet count resides for the 2021 Comets Football Season.
We continue to add a few players each and every week. 16 This past week!
We have followed up and sent emails to those that did not complete their registration and were listed under an “incomplete” status.
Several coaches have received lists of their registrations and are following up directly with parents/kids not yet signed up.
Report by Grade:
1st grade still has very low numbers, but 2nd grade players clearly put them well above an eligible status for a 2021 team.
Third and fourth grade are also both low numbers, but combined they clearly make the cut.
Fifth Grade added a few, but is still short 1 player to officially start in August. Hopefully they’ll even be above 15.
Six grade has great numbers for 2021 (like 2nd grade) as of today.
Seventh grade added a couple but is still short at least 4 players. Same as 5th, hoping they get 16 or greater.
And 8th grade is now up to 17 players.
Registration will continue for a few more weeks until we cannot delay ordering the custom uniforms.
WE’RE PRESENTLY LOOKING AT HAVING AN EQUIPMENT FITTING SHORTLY AFTER the 4th of JULY! This will allow ample time to get uniforms in. Will announce date/time later.
If you know of anyone pending regst right now because of paying, please have them consider using a three payment plan to make this process easier.
June, July, August payments. It’s critical to resolve registration sooner than later vs delaying as some teams will need to begin making team decisions in 3 weeks or less.
If there are other concerns, have them reach out to us.
If you can help in any way with players in any of the grades highlighted in yellow below and above (especially 5th and 7th) it would be greatly appreciated.
PARENTS – If you own your child’s helmet, it must be certified within the past two years. We will check them all at practice as we do annually.
If they don’t comply, they will be pulled and you will be scrambling for a new one. Current lead time on turnaround for helmet re-certification is 8 (eight) weeks!
We are looking for coaches at FLAG, 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, and 6th Grade levels!
Please contact us if interested.
