Volunteer / Uniform Deposit:
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 during the season.  

Beginning this year, families will be assigned to volunteer shifts by the Volunteer Coordinator.  During the registration process, you can specify your preferred tasks.  These shifts include helping in the concessions stand, selling 50/50 raffle tickets on game days, helping with field set-up and tear-down, and various other necessary tasks.

Families can "buy out" of their volunteer obligations.  The cost is $150 (per family, not per player).

Each family is required to pay a $50 deposit at the time of registration.  Refunds are distributed at Uniform Return at the end of the season, as long as volunteer requirements are met and all uniforms and equipment are returned clean.

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 2019 season will be held on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28.  You will be contacted with the exact date and time your team is to arrive at the field.

 Football Items supplied by the EFL:
 * Helmet
 * One (1) mouth guard
 * Shoulder pads
 * Rib vest

Football Items not supplied by the EFL:
* Cleats:  Should be a youth football cleat.  No baseball, soccer cleats or metal spikes are allowed.
* Socks:  Can be any length, but should be black in color.                
* Athletic Cup:  Must be worn at all time during practices and games.
* Gloves:  You should check with your child's coach before investing in gloves.  Few positions benefit from their use.
* Mouth Guard:  The EFL supplies one (1) mouth guard at equipment distribution.  It is common for players to go through 2-3 mouth guards each season.  You can purchase additional mouth guards at the Concession Stand, or at any sporting goods store.   Parents are strongly urged to have a spare mouth guard on hand (especially on game days) as they can easily become detached and lost.

All uniforms and equipment items must be returned in a clean condition on the designated Return Date to the equipment shed at Brookside Park.  Any uniform not returned in a clean condition or equipment item not returned will result in forfeiture of the volunteer/uniform deposit..  Parents are responsible for the replacement cost of any unreturned items, which can be as much as $500 for football and $300 for cheer.

Coaches are not responsible for collecting uniforms, nor can they refund uniform deposits.
