Here are the most frequently asked questions regarding the DJFL Tackle program registration process and equipment pickup:
If I miss one of the two pickups, I can just meet my coach over the summer and get my sons equipment with him? No, there will only be two equipment pickups See Equipment Pickup page. For all players that do not pick up equipment, we will hold pickups in August, but every player will be subject to a $100-$150 additional special handling fee.
My son cannot make the equipment pickups, do I really need to bring him? Yes, he or she needs to come. We cannot properly fit a player without him or her being there, and therefore, we will not hand out equipment to any parents without their son or daughter present.
I cannot make it to the doctor in time to fill out the DJFL Doctor Form, so can I just use one of the other physical forms in lieu of the DJFL Doctor Form? No, DJFL will no longer accept doctor physical forms, school forms or camp forms. You must bring the DJFL official form signed AND stamped by the child's physician.
Can I use last year's DJFL Doctor's Form? No.
I did not collect my equipment check back last year--can I just use that? No, you must complete a new deposit check for $400 and post date it 12/01/17.
I forgot to turn in my equipment, can my son just use that this season? No, we must refit him properly. Please bring the equipment back to the equipment pickup.
I cannot make the May pickup and my son will be away playing his travel lacrosse games at CONNY in June, won't the DJFL have one more pickup in June like year's past? No, given the size of the DJFL and the need to properly staff the equipment pickups, we will only hold two pickups this season. This is the reason we have made both dates a weeknight pickup with an ample window of time.
I am planning to apply for a scholarship, so I am going to wait until August before I make a final decision--that won't affect me will it? Yes it will: all scholarship requests need to be made beforeJune 5th in order to be considered. In addition, if you do not pickup your equipment either in May or June, you will be accessed the $100-150 special handing fee.
Can I bring all my sons at the same time? Yes.
Can I register in person at Equipment Pickup? Yes, but make sure to refer to our check list and bring everything you need to register, pay and pickup your equipment. Registration rates increase on May 16 and again on June 1 so the fee on the date of equipment pickup will apply. All registrations are entered online so it is very helpful if YOU do the online registration rather than submit paper at equipment pickup.
FIRST EQUIPMENT PICKUP FOR 2017 IS MAY 23th FROM 7:00 to 9:00 PM for all grades. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO GET THE DOCTOR'S MEDICAL FORM TO YOUR PHYSICIAN IN TIME FOR HIM OR HER TO COMPLETE AND RETURN TO YOU BEFORE YOU PLAN TO PICK UP EQUIPMENT.
