Final Equipment Hand In

Our final equipment hand in date will be Thursday, November 6th from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

One of the things LYF does that most programs don't is supply equipment for our players. It costs well over $200 to outfit a single player. Lakewood Youth Football has made a large investment in equipment and it is important that we get all items back at the end of the season.

If you have items to return, please plan to come up to the equipment shed between 5 and 8 and see us. We would like to hear about your experience this year!

Any players with equipment still missing after we close up shop will have a bill sent to their house for replacement costs of the equipment. Thank you and we will see you Thursday!

Equipment Hand In

Lakewood Youth Football wants to congratulate all of our teams on a great season! Most of the teams have wrapped up their game schedules with 8th grade and 5th grade finishing things off this coming Saturday. 

8th grade plays at home at 10:00 AM. At the conclusion of that game we will be accepting equipment in the shed. We will be taking equipment until 2:00 PM. Please wash your jerseys and pants, place pants pads into a plastic sack, remove mouthpiece from your helmet. (Also, if you purchased an aftermarket chinstrap, remove it and replace with the chinstrap that came on the helmet). Also bring in your shoulder pads. 

We will accept any cleats that you wish to donate. Consider bringing them to us instead of taking them to Goodwill. We hand out a lot of used cleats and we are happy to take any that you can't use any longer.    

8th grade: You are allowed to turn in equipment immediately after your game. LYF will handle the cleaning of your items. 

5th grade: We will set up another date for your team. 

It is important that all equipment belonging to Lakewood Youth Football is returned to us. Failure to return your child's equipment will result in you being invoiced for the cost of replacement. It costs roughly $250 to outfit one player. Please get that equipment back to us so we can inspect it and prepare for next season!   

Thanks again for a great year! Info on the year end celebration will be announced very soon. Stay tuned!
