The EFL is a non-profit organization that depends on volunteers to be successful.  Each family involved in our organization is required to volunteer for three (3) shifts per family, during the season. This season each family will have the ability to pay $200.00 during registration to opt out of all volunteers required volunteer shifts.

Register for volunteer shifts: 
All volunteer shifts will need to be approved by Volunteer coordinator and will include helping in the concessions stand, field set-up and tear-down, and various other options.

Each family is required to pay a $200 volunteer deposit at the time of registration.  Refunds are distributed at uniform return at the end of the season. For each volunteer shift signed up for and missed, a $50.00 fee will be deducted from the original $200 deposit.

Participation in fundraiser:
Each participant in the program is required to sell tickets for our annual raffle, which awards four (4) cash prizes totaling $1000.  Tickets are $5 each and come in books of 10.   Each participant is required to sell at least two (2) books of tickets (valued at $100).  Families with multiple participants will be required to sell no more than four (4) books of tickets (valued at $200), regardless of the number of siblings in the program.

The Ellington Football League supplies most of the uniform components for both football players and cheerleaders.  Unless otherwise noted, these uniforms are the property of the League and must be returned immediately after the end of the season.

Uniform distribution for the 2024 season will be held late July.  You will be contacted with the exact date and time your team is to arrive at the field.
