Welcome Note and Information

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the 2020 St Louis Park Youth Football season!

We are working on setting teams and coaches, and are excited to kick-off the season!  You should be receiving information from your team’s coach very soon.  However, since time is short, there are a few key dates and events to be aware of for your player.

Equipment Handout

There are three scheduled dates for equipment handout:

  • Sunday, August 16th from Noon -2:30pm
  • Please check our calendar for additional times and dates

The location for all equipment handout dates is the Louisiana Oaks Equipment Shed.  Louisiana Oaks is the park located across from Park Tavern on Louisiana Avenue and Walker Street.  The shed is west of the main park building and can be reached from the walking path just past the main building. 

Important – You will need two checks at the time of handout to receive your equipment. You will not receive equipment without these checks:

  1. A $200 player equipment deposit. This check will be returned at the end of the season when equipment is returned.
  2. A $100 volunteer deposit.  This check will also be returned when your volunteer commitment is completed at the end of the season.

We will provide additional handout dates as needed, so please do not be concerned if you are unable to make the posted dates and times.  You don’t need equipment to start practice since the first few days will be skills and conditioning work.

Player Weigh-In

Please go to LMAA website lmaa.org for a complete list of other association weigh-ins if you are unable to make the SLP weigh-in date and time.  Weigh-ins are starting August 20th.  SLP weigh-ins are scheduled for Wednesday, August 26th at the Rec Center.  Here are the tentative times we have scheduled for each grade:

  • 6:00pm - 4th Grade
  • 6:20pm - 5th Grade
  • 6:40pm - 6th Grade
  • 7th grade yet TBD

Practices

Practices for all grade levels can start on Monday, August 17th.  Your coach will reach out to you and your player shortly about your team’s dates, times, and locations.  Per league rules, coaches can have as much practice time as deemed reasonable before school starts.  Although once school starts, the league limits practice time to 5 hours per week.

We are looking forward to a great season!  Go Park!

Thanks,

Nels
