$500 will receive a free registration. This sponsorship program is for donations made to Central Dekalb of at least $500, and not any specific team. The sponsorship program grants one free registration for every $500 worth of sponsorship given directly to CDYFA. This does not include any portions that are given to your child’s team. If you have already registered your child, you will receive a registration refund for the amount you paid at registration. Registration reimbursement under this policy will be awarded once Central Dekalb receives the funds from the business entity.
