Participants should come in proper attire and plenty of water or sports drinks. Participants should bring anything else they may need during practice such as: snacks, inhaler, insect repellent, etc. Football players will not need their equipment during the first week. Team coaches or team moms will inform their team when equipment is necessary.

Picture ID

This is used to verify that the player on the field is the player on the rooster before every game. Pictures for these IDs will be taken on Saturday, August 8 between 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM at the Homewood-Flossmoor Auditorium (2010 Chestnut Road in Homewood, IL). Your child's team specific time will be provided by your team mom.
