On Saturday, May 10th, the Tri-County JFL Sand Devils will be holding their first Sign-up day in your community for the 2014 season. This meeting will allow parents and students to meet with some of the coaches and directors and ask any questions or address any concerns that you may have about our organization or our football program.
Last season, the Sand Devils program fielded three tackle teams with 74 players and one flag team with 18 players. We are hoping to expand to 120 tackle player and five tackle teams, and 40 flag players and two flag teams.
Any child, boys and girls, ages 6-13, is encouraged to participate in the Tri-County Sand Devils JFL program. Anyone entering high school in the fall of 2014 is not eligible. Any junior high student athlete who is going to play baseball, softball, or cross country is encouraged to play football for the Sand Devils. These athletes will be encouraged to practice and play for his or her school team first, practice with us when they can throughout the season, and then join the team in full when their school sport season ends.
The cost to play this year is $80 which is due before the start of the season in August. Every child who wants to play, regardless of the ability to pay, will play for the Sand Devils. No child will be turned away.
A copy of your player’s birth certificate will be needed. Sign up time is from 1:00 – 3:00 at the following locations:
Hartem Area: Hartem Grade School Cafeteria.
Illini Central Area: Illini Central Grade School Library
Midwest Central Area: Green Valley Park
Delavan Area: Delavan Park District Batting Cages
On Saturday, June 14, the Sand Devils will be having a Recruit Day at the park in San Jose from 4:00-6:00. This will serve as a sign-up day for those who miss the first one in May.
