Allentown Redbirds Opening Day
by posted 08/03/2014
 

Opening day is just a day away – tomorrow August 4th!!

Thanks to everyone who came out on Thursday to submit payments and paperwork, order jerseys and pick up football equipment.  We were excited to see so many families getting geared up for the season!  If you were unable to attend on July 31st please be sure that you arrive early on August 4th to finalize fees, paperwork, equipment and jersey sizing.  Volunteers will be at the field at 5pm to collect any missing information.  As a reminder, we cannot have any football players or cheerleaders on the field practicing if all of these requirements are not 100% fulfilled.

For those of you who have outstanding fees or paperwork then please use this as a checklist to ensure that you bring everything with you to Byron Johnson on Monday:

  • Original and one copy of birth certificate (You may have it returned to you this day if we have a previous year’s certified copy on file.)
  • 2014 Pop Warner Medical Form – Both pages must be completed and the original 2nd page signed and stamped by a physician and dated after 1/1/2014 (faxes will not be accepted).  If you are unable to get an appointment with your physician on time then you can use the $5 coupon at a CVS Minute Clinic.
  • 2014 Pop Warner Player Contract - Both pages need to be filled out with the second page signed by both the participant & parent and dated.
  • Two copies of the final 2013-2014 Report Card (Copies printed from the Realtime Parent Portal are acceptable)
  • 2x2 facial photo – School picture works the best as it needs to be from the shoulders up.

With the start of our season only a day away, we wanted to provide our families with an update on where we stand with our teams.  The Allentown Redbirds have declared the following teams to Central Jersey Pop Warner:

  • Flag Football and Cheer
  • Mitey Mite Football and Cheer
  • Jr Pee Wee Football
  • Pee Wee Cheer
  • Jr Midget Football

Practices will run Monday-Thursday from 6-8:30pm throughout the month of August.  Please have your son & daughter hydrate throughout the day and not wait until practice.  He/she should bring a water bottle with his/her name clearly written on it.  Parents are requested to be present throughout all practices, especially if your son/daughter has any potential medical concerns.

We look forward to seeing all of our Redbird families again!

Welcome to the Allentown Redbirds 2014 Season!!
by posted 07/27/2014
 

Welcome to the Allentown Redbirds 2014 Season!!

Can you believe that there are only 8 days until the start of the 2014 football and cheer season!  Time is growing short. If you have not registered yet to join in the fun then consider this a friendly reminder.  Log in to allentownredbirds.org and hit the REGISTER NOW button.  It will only take a couple of minutes and you can even pay online via credit card or PayPal.  It doesn't get much easier than this!
 
All of our Board members and coaches have been working hard during the off season planning and preparing for our next momentous season.  It all starts with the 1st major event scheduled for this Thursday, July 31st.  This will be the 1st opportunity to submit all required paperwork (see details below), football players will pick up their equipment and each player must be present to get fitted for their game jersey.  Every effort needs to be made to stop by Byron Johnson on July 31st between 6-8pm to take care of business.  This will allow the 1st night of practice to commence without any delays, which will make all the coaches very happy.

The 1st night of practice is Monday, August 4th @ 6pm.  All football and cheer participants must be registered, all fees paid and all paperwork handed in before they are allowed to begin practicing.  If you can’t make it to the park on July 31st then you will need to arrive between 5-5:45pm on August 4th to pay any owed fees, submit required paperwork, football players will pick up their equipment and get fitted for their game jersey.  If anything is missing then your son and/or daughter will not be allowed to begin practicing with his or her team until the Board receives everything.

     The list of required documents is:

  • Original and one copy of birth certificate (You may have it returned to you this day if we have a previous year’s certified copy on file.)
  • 2014 Pop Warner Medical Form – Both pages must be completed and the original 2nd page signed and stamped by a physician and dated after 1/1/2014 (faxes will not be accepted).  If you are unable to get an appointment with your physician on time then you can use the $5 coupon at a CVS Minute Clinic.
  • 2014 Pop Warner Player Contract - Both pages need to be filled out with the second page signed by both the participant & parent and dated.
  • Two copies of the final 2013-2014 Report Card (Copies printed from the Realtime Parent Portal are acceptable)
  • 2x2 facial photo – School picture works the best as it needs to be from the shoulders up.

The organization relies on each and every family to help out by performing various tasks necessary to provide certain services to all of our families.  Without everyone’s assistance we would not exist or be as successful as we are.

        Workbond Requirements per Family:

Football

1 or more Field Duty assignments

 

2 Concession Stand duties (1 game day and 1 practice night)

Cheer

1 or more Jock Shop duties

 

2 Concession Stand duties (1 game day and 1 practice night)

 

 

 

 

* If you have children that participate in both sports, you must complete at least 1 Jock Shop shift per cheerleader, at least 1 Field Duty assignment per football player and 2 Concession Stand shifts per family.  In order to satisfy this portion of the $150 workbond requirement, you must complete these shifts

** The Concession Stand volunteer book and the Jock Shop Volunteer Schedule will be available on July 31st at the paperwork submission/equipment handout event so that you can sign up for your required duties.

Believe it or not we actually have been given some details of our game day schedules.  However, please be aware that this information can change as all the towns are still finalizing their rosters.  Drum roll please……

8/24 – buy week

8/31 - Home

9/7   - Home

9/14 – Away

9/21 – Home

9/28 – Away
