Mifflin Broncos Football

Weather Related Information for all Teams
For all Football and Cheer Teams: Once you are officially assigned to a team, your coach will communicate with you directly through the SIPLAY App and email about any changes to the practice or game schedule. In general, you may assume that teams do practice if it’s drizzling. If there is thunder or lightning, then there is no practice.

Tackle Football Players

NOTE: Mouthguards are required for all Tackle Football Players. If your player does not have a mouthguard, he will not be permitted to participate in any contact drills or games.

**Typically teams practice on Tues, Weds, and Thurs**

Mighty Mites (Age 7-8) Practice: 5:30-7:30 (Location: High School Field, grass between the stadiums)

Mites & Midgets (Age 9-12) Practice: 5:45-7:45 (Location: Kenhorst Playground)

** YOUR COACH is the person who provides your schedule for the remainder of the season, please communicate directly with your coach as practices may vary).**

Season Schedule: The BICYL (Berks Inter-County Youth League) is responsible for putting out the schedule of games for the season. Note that they do not finalize the schedule until all team rosters are submitted. Team Rosters can not be submitted to them until registration is finalized. Note that late registrations cause a delay in submitting our finalized team rosters to the league, and thus delays the schedule.  We will provide you with a schedule as soon as it becomes available.

Flag Football Players

LOCATION: Lancaster Ave (the outfield of the JV softball field & Jr high practice field). Parents should park in the High school parking lot by the softball fields.

ATTIRE: Tee-shirts, shorts, and sneakers (children may wear spikes if they have them). Bring a water bottle.

This is meant to be a FUN for the kids. They will go thru some basic agility drills, and most likely do a little throwing and catching.

The Flag Coordinator and our other volunteer coaches will evaluate and start to split up teams as evenly as possible during the Flag Minicamp.

Regular scheduled practices typically start 2 weeks before school starts, and are held at the same location and time (6-7:30pm) for the entire Flag season.

The coaches will provide all the equipment necessary.

The Flag Schedule is communicated via the Flag Coordinator.

Medical Consent

Please be sure your child’s Medical Consent Form is completed and signed by his or her physician. This needs to be completed before our first official practice (August 13, 2018) or your child will not be able to practice. NOTE: If your physician cannot accommodate your child before the designated date, Patient First allows you to go in for a physical without having an appointment.

Medical Consent for Flag Football

Flag players still need to hand in the medical consent form with the top portion filled out and signed by parents. A physician does not need to sign this consent (Flag Football Only). Note: Flag Cheerleaders DO need their medical consent signed by a physician.

Uniform Deposit

On the day(s) of Uniform Handouts, please be sure to bring a post-dated check for November 1, 2018 in the amount of $150 made payable to: Mifflin Broncos Athletic Association when you come to pick up your child’s uniform. You will not be able to take a uniform home unless we have a deposit check. This check covers the cost of the uniform in the event that it comes back damaged, lost, or doesn’t come back at all.
