What equipment will my child need?

Tackle Football: Each player will need to have their own set of shoulder pads, white helmet, mouth guard, and cleats. Padded practice pants and practice jersey are recommended.

When are practices and games?

Practices will vary based on coach and field availability, but they typically begin in mid-July and are 3 days a week (usually Mon/Tue/Thu), then cut back to 2 days a week once games begin.

Game schedules are set by Greenville Rec and are released in late August. Typically, the first game is in early September. 6U and 8u typically have games on Saturday. 10u and 12u typically have games on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday at 6:30pm and 8:00pm, respectively. Please note these days and times may change year to year, this is only a guideline. The last playoff game is usually in November.

Will my child have to do any fundraisers?

We have factored in any additional expenses to our registration costs in order to eliminate the need for any individual team fundraisers.
