Sign-up for the Gene Raffield Football League will be held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. ET this Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Port St. Joe fire house on Williams Avenue. Please bring a fee of $60 and, if the player was not a member of the league last year, a copy of his birth certificate. Every player must have a physical exam prior to playing. The league requests this be done as soon as possible. Equipment distribution will be done immediately following registration so the player must be present.
Port St. Joe will field teams in two age brackets in 2013: the Dolphins (ages 7-9) and the Jaguars (ages 10-12). If there are sufficient numbers, a second team in either or both age divisions could be fielded. That decision will come after registration when coaches determine the number of players.
There will be a second registration period on Saturday, Aug. 24. League officials urge parents to take advantage of the first sign up day as expectations are the turnout will be high. Those who sign up first will have the most and best equipment to choose from. Everyone who wishes to play must register no later than 1 p.m. ET Aug. 24. No applications will be accepted after that date. This means there will be no late sign-ups.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Matt Herring at 247-9842 or Dona Sander at 227-4839.
