Formation of Teams:
Football Teams - Central Dekalb offers unlimited weight, single age
group football. All kids are placed on a team regardless of size, experience,
or ability. All kids that register in good faith will be placed on a team.
Tryouts will be used for placement purposes only. Central Dekalb will
offer two different levels of play to make sure every kid is placed in
an environment best suited for the development of that child. Central
Dekalb will field elite teams with the purpose of placing the most advanced
kids on teams together and playing against the most elite competition.
We will field competitive teams with the purpose of developing kids that
may need more attention, or may be inexperienced to the game. No kids
are guaranteed to be placed on the team of their choice. Central Dekalb
does not have a playing time rule, though all coaches are encouraged to
get every kid in every game.
Cheerleading Teams - Tryouts
will be used for placement purposes only, and all who sign up in good
faith to participate may not be arbitrarily cut. Central Dekalb is a competitive
program open to all skill levels.
Participants' birthday must
be prior to July 31, 2012
The registration rate is $165 for football and $180 for cheerleading.
There are additional early and late registration periods as outlined above.
For each additional child of the same immediate family, there will be
a $15.00 discount per child. This discount only applies to kids living
in the same household. Cheerleaders have two separate options for registration.
Cheerleaders that are returning to their same team and DO NOT need to
purchase a uniform can do so as a returning cheerleader with a $70 discount.
All cheerleaders that need to purchase a uniform, whether returning or
new, shall register at the full rate.
Each football team will be
required to pay a uniform deposit prior to receiving the team's uniforms.
Refunds will be paid upon return of CDYFA property.
Out of county fee is $15.00.
In 2012 we are giving each parent a chance to receive free registration
through our park sponsorship program. Every parent that secures a sponsorship
donation to the park of at least $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.
Form of Payment:
We accept cash, credit cards or money orders. All monies are due at the
time of registration. No checks accepted.
The refund policy for Central Dekalb will be strictly enforced. If a football
player/cheerleader withdraws, the parent must notify the Registrar no
later than July 8, 2012, at which time the parent will receive a full
refund, less a $15 administrative fee. On or after that date, a refund
of $50.00 will be given up to August 1, 2012. There will be no refunds
given after August 1, 2012. Refund policy is enforced whether or not your
child attends any practices.
All parents must provide the park with an original birth certificate.
All birth certificates should be turned in to the child's coach or team
mom prior to August 1st.
Mandatory Park Fundraiser
All parents are required to participate in the mandatory Coca-Cola truckload
Fundraiser. Parents are required to buy or sell a minimum of five (5)
cases per family, CASH ONLY transactions. Parents may also choose to "Buy
Out" at a cost of $50.00 with no products given. This fundraiser is used
to defray some of the cost for operation expenses, as well as, buy new
equipment and uniforms. This shall be the only mandatory park fundraiser.

Walker Park at their appointed times.
Each child is required to have a physical. You can either take your child

to practice after Tuesday, July 31st without having a physical on file.

Practice and Game Schedule
Practice for Football and Cheerleading will begin on July 9th. Practice
is held Monday - Friday until August 3rd. Once school begins, practice
will be only three (3) days a week. All practices are held at Wade Walker
Park. Please try to have your child to practice on time. Please remember
to be on time to pick up your child after practice. Each team will set
its own times for practice not to last later than 8:30pm on school nights.
Games are usually played on Saturdays. The actual days that the games
will be played will be determined once the schedule has been finalized
by the league. Central Dekalb has no control or input over the league
schedule. Once the league schedule has been issued, we will issue it to
the coaches to pass along to all parents.
Each football player will have to attend the pre-season
weigh-in and certification. On certification day, players will be labeled
as "Heavy" players if they do not meet the weight requirements for their
age groups. Heavy players will not be allowed to play any skilled positions
in said age group. All players are allowed to play with their age group
regardless of weight. Each team will be given a date and time to certify
their players. Your Team Mom will notify you of the date and time your
child is scheduled for certification.
Parents please make the necessary arrangements, so that your child does
not miss certification. There will be no make-up dates. If your child
misses or does not make certification, CDYFA will not refund your money
