Registration for youth football ends next week

Only one more week remains to register in time for the Greenville Lions Youth Football and Cheerleading programs’ 2019 season.

The deadline to register for participation in either program is July 10. Registration can be completed online at the following two links:

– Cheerleading: bit.ly/2J9NGLC

The due date for payment for both programs is also fast approaching, and is set for July 15.

Uniform costs for participating in the programs are as follows:

– Flag football for ages 6 and younger: $75 for a jersey, a pair of shorts and socks

– Tackle football for the 8 and younger, 10 and younger and 12 and younger age divisions: $125 for a jersey, a pair of pants, socks and helmet decals

– Cheerleading: $150 for a shell top, a long sleeve body liner, a skirt, a pair of briefs, socks, shoes and pom poms.

Football players will be placed in an age division based on their age as of July 31, 2019.

Participants in the youth football and cheerleading programs will also be doing some fundraising to cover additional expenses in the coming months.

This season, the youth football teams will play teams from west of Greenville, mostly from the Mesquite area.

Of those games, four will be played at T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium at Greenville High School and four will be played in East Dallas. There will also be a game at Dallas Cowboys Stadium on Nov. 16.

Football practice will be three nights per week on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Cheer practice the same three nights per week until school starts, when their practice schedule will drop to Tuesday and Thursday.
