There will be a mandatory "Pick 3" Lotto fundraiser this year. The cost is $50.00 PER ATHLETE. You will be given 5 tickets that are $10 each. You may choose to sell these tickets to reclaim your money or keep them for yourselves.
Here is the way the lottery works:
• Tickets are sold for $10 each. The lottery runs for the month of September, Monday through Friday.
• Each ticket has a 3-digit number; the winners are determined by the Pennsylvania's Lottery's "Pick-3" evening weekday drawings for September. (The lottery does not include "Pick-3" afternoon drawings - only the evening drawings count.)
• The winning "Pick-3" lottery ticket winner collects $25 Monday through Thursday and $50.00 on Friday.
• Every ticket sold theoretically has 22 chances to win, based on the 22 weekday evening drawings in September.
Because this technically is a game of chance, players are not permitted to sell tickets. Ticket sales must be conducted by parents or guardians. The board will monitor the drawings and disburse money to those with the winning tickets.
This year we are offering a 3-month payment plan option. All Mandatory Lotto fees and any sibling discounts are collected and subtracted at time of registration, all remaining registration fees will be split into 3 payments, only 1 due at registration. The last 2 remaining payments will be due May 15th and June 15th. This is for those using credit cards only. Cash/Checks will not be eligible for payment plan.
LVYFL has changed the rules for the 130b division, it will be broken down into two subdivisions. PV Cubs have chosen to participate in the "younger" division. The rule is intended to balance the competition for those programs which contain younger players (and a middle school program) vs. those programs that have older players. No player in the new subdivision may attain his 13th birthday prior to September 1, 2016.
This is for new registrants only!!! No athlete will be placed on a roster until a copy of the birth certificate is on file with the organization. Please use the Blue Sombrero system to upload the certificate or email to Tara Shaffer, firstname.lastname@example.org
Code of Conduct:
Every parent/family must read and sign the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct will be enforced at all PV Cubs events, practices, home games, away games, tournaments, etc. please read and act accordingly at all times.
Each family in the organization will need to fulfill the work bond requirement. If the requirement is not met by the end of the season the organization will keep and cash the $200.00 work bond check that is handed in at registration. Work bond signups, and more specific information will be available during the first few weeks of practice. The check should be post dated for December 1, 2016 and will be collected at Equipment Handouts.
All Football and Cheer equipment handouts will be on Saturday July 23rd from 9am-12pm in the rear parking lot of the High School by the cafeteria. This will be the ONLY scheduled equipment handout. A post dated check in the amount of $200.00 per athlete will be collected. This check will be returned when the undamaged equipment/uniform is handed back in. The check should be post dated for December 1, 2016.
Refunds will be distributed up to Friday August 5th, 2016. An email is required to cancel a registration. No refunds will be made after this date. A refund request will result in a return of registration fees only minus a $25.00 processing fee. Work bond checks and uniform checks will also be returned when equipment is returned to the organization. There will be no refunds for Camp as it's a fundraiser.
Football and Cheerleading camp will be held from Monday July 25th 2016 - Friday July 29th 2016 at the Pleasant Valley High School Field. The cost is $30.00. Camp will be held from 6:00pm-8:00pm each evening. Camp is 5 days this year instead of 4 (weather permitting).
The first day of practice will be Monday August 1st, 2016 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the High School practice fields behind the tennis courts. Practice will be held Monday through Thursday until school starts. Once school starts practice will be Tuesday's, Wednesday's and Thursday's.
4 Year Olds:
We are opening up registration for cheer and football to 4 year olds. You must be 4 as of August 1, 2016.
FOOTBALL ONLY: The minimum play rule for 4 year olds will NOT apply. Our biggest concern is the safety of the children. Because of this safety concern and the 4 year olds will not be guaranteed any play time during games.
We will be looking for volunteers to fill the following roles. All volunteers must sign up on Blue Sombrero. Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Parents, Homecoming Committee, Fundraising Committee, Yearbook Committee.
