Youth Football Fitting -- Parents we apologize for the short notice. We will have the first uniform fitting tomorrow, Wednesday the 29th, at the American Bank of Oklahoma Community Room from 6:30-8:30 PM. We will have 3 more between now and June 10th so if you cannot make this one don't worry, you will have more opportunities. We would advise you bring your child's shoulder pads with him to get an accurate fitting on the jersey. The cost of the entire uniform is $60.00. I would advise you pay when you do the fitting as we will not order your child's uniform until it is paid for in full and any uniform turned in after the initial order may not arrive in time for the first game.
If you have not paid your sign up fee you may pay that at the fittings as well, but is not mandatory. As always feel free to contact any of the Board Members or your Coach with questions. -- Collinsville Youth Football -- 5/29/2013
