Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What equipment do I need to buy for my player?  Answer: You need to provide cleats and a mouthguard (and this year a mask) for your player.
  2. What equipment is provided for my player and how do I get it? Answer:  Equipment handout is Saturday, July 25 at Market Place Self Storage (near Home Depot).  Details about equipment handout will be emailed/posted the week of July 20th.  Your player will be given a helmet, shoulder pads, practice pants, game pants and game jerseys.  The game jerseys are yours to keep. Helmet, pads, and pants must be turned in at the end of the season.  Most players practice in a jersey from previous seasons so they can keep their game jerseys clean.  If you don’t have an old jersey you can buy practice jerseys pretty cheap online or can borrow an old jersey from another player. Game jerseys typically are not distributed until right before the first game.
  3. How do I sign up for volunteer hours? Answer: Select DIBS at the top of this page.  Instructions for how to use DIBS can be found below.  We still need a lot of volunteers for equipment handout on July 25th!  Volunteer opportunities will be more limited this year due to Covid-19 so this is a great chance to fulfill a lot of your 8 hours.
  4. Why does my player need to get weighed?  Answer:  Safety is our top priority in youth football.  As you can imagine, player size varies significantly.  To keep everyone safe, all players are weighed within the first 2-3 weeks of practice.  Players weighing over a specific weight (as designated by the Ute Conference, by age group) are considered “X Men” and are only allowed to play on the line.  Also, players who are light for their age group are allowed to “Z down” and play with a younger age group if they meet the Z-down weight.  Contact your coach for the specific weights for X-men and Z-down for your age group.
  5. How do I find out where and when my player will practice? Answer:  Once coaches have decided the days and times of practice for their specific team, the schedules will be posted in Sports Engine under the “Calendar” tab.  While coaches try to stick to a consistent schedule, especially after school starts, practice times and days may vary from week to week based on coach and field availability.  Your coach or team manager should send out the practice schedule at the beginning of each week, however if you don’t hear from your team manager always refer to the Calendar on this website.
  6. When I have questions throughout the season, who do I ask? Answer:  Always ask your team manager first.  If the team manager doesn’t know the answer he/she will refer you to someone who does.
  7. What is the time commitment?  Answer: Tackle football is a full season commitment.  Practices are NOT optional.  Unless a player is ill or there is a valid reason, it is important that all players attend practices for their own safety and that of their team members.  We love having new players in youth football, however those of you new to football need to understand that football is a FULL commitment and is not a sport that you can easily balance with another sport in the same season.  You are making a commitment to your coaches and teammates to be at every game.  Leaving at halftime or missing a game to play another sport puts everyone in a bad position.  Missing practices means your player will not get play time.
