2023 Participant Parent Acknowledgement
All Parents / Guardians of AJT participants are expected to contribute to the overall success of the Antelope Jr. Titans Football & Cheer organization (AJT). AJT is run completely on parent/community volunteers. Please read that you acknowledge the expectations of our parents.
Registration fees are $375. The fees include (1) practice jersey, trophy, insurance, facility fees, SRPD fees, SYF fees, use of all uniforms (both home, away & game pants), practice pants, spirit pack, training camp hosted by Antelope High School, and certified football equipment (shoulder pads & helmet).
Uniforms are $ 77.00 (an additional cost) and are NOT included in registration and must be paid at time of registration. Returning players are NOT required to pay as they may use the previous season's jersey as long as the same jerseys are being worn ( ie, the color scheme, jersey patterns do not change).
We can implement roster cuts based on player safety and roster size. If your player does not make the season roster, they will be considered a practice player. Practice players can be promoted to the season roster, at the coaches’ discretion. If your child is dismissed from the team due to safety reasons, AJT will issue a refund of all money paid, minus a $25.00 processing fee.
Your child will be placed on a team that meets the age or grade requirements per the SYF rules. We will not take any parent requests based on personal judgements. Per SYF rules, players may play up an age division (agreement must be made between player’s parents, coaches, and AJT Executive Board) but are not allowed to play down.
Cheer fees are $375. The fee includes facility fees, insurance, trophies, bows, SYF competition, and spirit pack. Registration fees do not cover the cost of the cheer uniform.
Cheer will be implementing cuts, if needed for safety reasons. If another squad has an opening and your child meets the age and experience requirements, they will be placed on that squad first. Your AJT Cheer Committee, including coaches, will be placing your child on a squad based on age first, and ability second. There will be no parent request taken into consideration when placing any cheerleader. If your child is cut, there will be a refund of all money paid, minus a $25.00 processing fee.
Expectations of All Parents/Guardians
There are absolutely no refunds for any reason, other than being cut from a squad due to team size or safety reason and money will be returned minus the $25 processing fee.
All participants must be paid in FULL prior to the first day of practice, July 1, 2022. Player’s that have an outstanding balance due will not be issued any equipment. If your player is not paid in full, they will not be able to step onto the field or participate in team activities. Payment plans will be offered during the preseason, and AJT offers preseason fundraising to help cover the cost of your player’s registration.
Any offseason competitions will not be covered through your player’s registration; these events are considered optional. Financial responsibility for these events must be incurred by the player’s parents/guardians.
A minimum of ten (10) volunteer hours per player (maximum of 2) are required to be completed during the 2023 season. A $250 volunteer deposit will be held as a deposit until the required volunteer hours have been completed. If you do not complete the required volunteer hours by the deadline date (TBD at a later date), your volunteer check will be cashed. After your required volunteer hours have been completed, AJT will return the volunteer deposit to the parents/guardians. Volunteer deposit checks (checks, money orders, or cashiers checks) must be provided to AJT prior to your player receiving any equipment. If you do not want to volunteer, the buyout fee is $200. This buyout must be received prior to the start of the season.
Every participant is required to provide an equipment deposit of $250. This deposit check must be received prior to your player being issued equipment (checks, money orders, or cashiers checks). This deposit check will be returned to the parents/guardians at equipment hand-in. If determined by the AJT Executive Board that the equipment is damaged or requires repair outside of normal wear & tear, the damages will be taken out of the equipment deposit. Any remaining funds will be returned to the parents/guardians.
Every participant, parent and/or guardian must meet the SYF guidelines and rules for participation, including a medical release signed by a physician, dated after April 1st of the current year.
