REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR 2013 FOOTBALL AND CHEERLEADING SEASON. AS WITH LAST YEAR THERE IS NO FEE TO REGISTER FOR TACKLE FOOTBALL, CHEERLEADING, OR FLAG FOOTBALL. YOU WILL HAVE TO SELL RAFFLE TICKETS AGAIN TO ASSIST THE LEAGUE IN PAYING FOR THE COST TO FIELD TEAMS, SEE OUR 2013 BUDGET. WE HAVE HAD TO INCREASE THE REQUIRED TICKETS FOR TACKLE FOOTBALL TO 30 TICKETS. THIS CAME ABOUT DUE TO INCREASE IN FIELD COST, INSURANCE, RECONDITIONING COST, AND EQUIPMENT COST. WE HAVE NOT HAD AN INCREASE IN OUR RATES SINCE 2008. FLAG FOOTBALL AND CHEERLEADING HAS NOT INCREASED THIS SEASON. THIS INCREASE BRINGS US IN LINE WITH OTHER LEAGUES AROUND THE TVYFL. HERE ARE THEIR 2012 RATES
Lakeridge - $425 ($350 early registration rate, $500 late
Lake Oswego - $350
Tualatin - $345 or ($295 early registration rate)
Newberg - $350 ($250 early registration rate)
West Linn - $300
Clackamas - $285 ($385 with late fee)
Tigard - $270
Canby - $235 ($250 with late fee)
Wilsonville - $250
Sherwood - $400 (can fundraise all)
None of these leagues (except Sherwood) provides the fundraising like we do.
BASE RATE FOR THE 2013 SEASON IS:
TACKLE FOOTABLL 30 TICKETS
FLAG FOOTABLL 15 TICKETS
CHEERLEADING 20 TICKETS.
ALL 7TH GRADE AND 8TH GRADE TACKLE FOOTBALL PLAYERS WHO DON'T HAVE THEIR JERSEYS OR THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED COST WILL BE 6 TICKETS. IF PAID AFTER GEAR HAND OUT YOU HAVE AN ADITIONAL TICKET REQUIREMENT. 7TH AND 8TH GRADERS ONLY GET TO KEEP THEIR JERSEY'S AND IF IN EXCELLENT SHAPE DON'T HAVE TO PURCHASE ONE FOR THEIR 8TH GRADE YEAR.
ALL 7TH GRADE AND 8TH GRADE CHEERLEADERS GET TO KEEP THEIR UNIFORMS. THEY HAVE TO SELL AN ADITIONAL 10 TICKETS. IF YOU ARE A RETURNING 8TH GRADE CHEERLEADER THE BOARD WILL BE PUCHASING YOU NEW UNIFORMS AT NO ADITIONAL COST TO YOU.
WE STILL HAVE THE FAMILY DISCOUNT: IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE ATHLETE IN YOU HOME THE ATHLETES BEYOND THE FIRST IS HALF PRICE ON THE BASE RATE (UNIFOM NOT INCLUDED). SO FOR EXAMPLE IF YOU HAVE A 6TH GRADE FOOTBALL PLAYER, A 4TH GRADE CHEERLEADER, AND A 2ND GRADE FLAG PLAYER YOU WILL PAY 30 (TACKLE FOOTBALL PALYER)+ 10 (CHEERLEADER) + 8 (FLAG PLAYER) = 48 TICKETS.
ONCE YOU REGISTER CALL PEGGY AT 503-313-6770 TO MAKE ARANGEMENTS TO PICK UP YOUR RAFFLE TICKETS OR COME TO ONE OF OUR TICKET PICK UP TIME, YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED PRIOR TO AN PICK UP TIME.
WE ARE FREQUENTLY ASKED ABOUT HOW WE CAN MAKE OUR PROGRAM FREE TO ATHLETES IN SPITE OF $50,000 ANNUAL BUDGET. INSTEAD OF US ASKING THE PARENTS FOR THE CASH UP FRONT, AS THE OTHER LEAGUES DO, WE HAVE CHOSEN TO GIVE OUR PARENTS AND PLAYERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO FUNDRAISE ALL OF THE MONEY TO PLAY. YOU WILL BE ISSUED A NUMBER OF RAFFLE TICKETS WHICH YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SELL PRIOR TO THE ATHLETE PLAYING IN A GAME. THERE IS NO BUY OUT, YOU CAN SELL THE TICKETS OR PURCHASE THEM YOURSELF BUT THE MONEY FROM THE TICKETS MUST BE TURNED IN PRIOR TO ANY PLAYER PLAYING IN A GAME. WE HAVE TO BE HARD ON THIS AS THIS IS HOW WE FUND THIS PROGRAM.

As most of you know our raffle winner was drawn on Saturday, and congratulations to Kelli Lacey who purchased the winning ticktet #0955 from Jodee Willis. I know the selling of the tickets was stressfull for some but we all got it done and made the raffle a huge success. In the history of Milwaukie Youth Football this will be a year we will look back to and see it as a huge step forward. For those of you who sold extra thank you we used those tickets to help others play.
Again Thank You To All Of You
To MilwaukieYouth Football Parents
It has been reported in the media today, a former Milwaukie Youth Football coach Garry Allen Clausen has been charged with 8 counts of sex abuse in the second degree. Mr. Clausen coached from 2008 to 2010 coaching 7th and 8th grade football. Mr. Clausen also served as Flag Football Coordinator in 2010. Mr. Clausen was not asked to return for the 2011 season due to his removal as president of another youth sports program. Each year Mr. Clausen, as with all coaches, passed an extensive background check which was clean. To our knowledge at this point no allegations have been brought against Mr. Clausen by a current or former Milwaukie Youth Football Player or Cheerleader. If you have any further information please call Milwaukie Police Department at 503-786-7446. Our thoughts go out to all the victims of this terrible crime.
