$90—this includes everything. No association dues are collected because we do not answer to a regional or national chapter. The Junior Raiders program will have all brand new equipment and uniforms, as safety is a very high priority for every child that participates.
$60—Registration fee for anyone that played youth football in 2012 (Pop Warner/AAU/Jr. Plainsmen)
Opportunities to participate for FREE will be made available through player/parent participation in spring fund raising events. A deposit can be made at registration, rather than paying the full amount up front. The full amount must be paid by Monday, August 22nd.
