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.

Sponsorship Rewards:
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.

Refund Policy:
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.

Birth Certificates:
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.

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.

Player Certification
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.
