Payment Plan - Our payment plan is split into 5 payments for Cheer and Dance (Feb, March, April, May and June 1st)(including camp), and 6 payments (Feb, March, April, May, June and July 1st) for Football (football is given 1 extra payment only because of their equipment hand-out date). For example, if you register your child for cheer on Feb. 2nd, a deposit payment of $75 will be due on that day, and the balance will be due on the first of the following 4 months. If you wait until March 1st to register, you will need to pay the initial $75 PLUS the March payment on day 1, with the balance due on the first of the following 3 months, and so on. In other words, the later you wait to register, the fewer payments you will have, and the larger your first payment will be on day 1. This is no different than in years past.
Pay in Cash/Check/Money Order - If you do not want to input a credit / debit card number to pay for your registration, BEFORE registering, you will need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A code is REQUIRED to complete your child's registration without a credit/debit card. When you email the Registrar, you will be sent a code to complete your child's registration.
Required to Create a New Account - Grayslake Colts has moved to our new website (same website address, but new platform), so when entering the first registration for your family, you will need to create a NEW account for your family. Your information from the old website will NOT be transferred over. Many families have outdated information, and rather than carrying over the incorrect info, we chose to require new accounts across the board to ensure that all account information is accurate. If you attend the walk-in registration on February 2nd, we will be more than happy to help you set-up your family's new account.
Past Due Balances - If you have an outstanding balance due from the 2019 season, that amount will be added to your 2020 registration(s). If you have not already worked out arrangements to pay-off these balances, please send an email to our Treasurer at email@example.com.
Are you or your business interested in sponsoring Grayslake Colts for the 2020 season? We are always seeking new sponsors to assist in supporting our non-profit organization - which in turn helps our Grayslake youth! If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to welcome you to the Grayslake Colts Football, Cheer & Dance website. The Colts are Grayslake's original and oldest tackle football, cheerleading and dance instruction organization supporting athletes in future high school district 127 since 1968. We are a proud affiliate of the Grayslake Park District, one of the founding member communities in the TCYFL, and a member of IRCA & IDA.
Our mission is simple - we are a youth travel program that supports our athletes with guidance, instruction, coaching, mentoring, uniforms and equipment that provide the utmost safety; instilling at all times a spirit of good sportsmanship while acting with honor and integrity. As an affiliate of the Grayslake Park District we practice and play all of our home games at Aquatic Field, also utilizing our partner high schools of Grayslake Central and Grayslake North.
The Grayslake Colts Football, Cheer & Dance Association is a 501C3 Corporation located in The State of Illinois, United States of America.
When you are communicating (email, in person, at the field, at parent meetings) with any of our volunteers (BOARD MEMBERS, COACHES, ASSISTANT COACHES, TCs, JR COACHES, etc.), PLEASE remember that we are all volunteers. None of us receives any monetary incentives for the amount of time we spend volunteering for this organization; it is all work that is done FOR THE KIDS. So please remember that when you are speaking to any of our volunteers, we ask that you treat them with kindness and respect. If you are contacting one of us out of anger, please first take 24 hours to think about what you have to say, write down your thoughts, and then look at it again 24 hours later to consider if that’s really WHAT you want to communicate, and HOW you want to communicate it to us. We are 100% here to do the right thing for your kids, and will work with you. All we ask is that in return, you give us your respect. THANK YOU!
Also, please consider that every Board Member works a full-time job — on top of the large quantity of hours that each of us spends working on the Colts. Please be patient! If you send an email and don’t receive an immediate response, please assume that it’s because we, also, enjoy spending time with our kids…or we’re at work. Our intent is to get back to you within no more than 48-hours from the time of your original contact.
a) The sooner you register, the lower each payment will be, and the longer you’ll have to pay off your balance.
b) If you register in February, you’ll have a $60 deposit for cheer and dance, or a $75 deposit for football. You have the option to pay in full, or sign up for a payment plan.
c) The payment plans will entail 4 payments for cheer or dance (deposit, plus March 1, April 1, May 1 and June 1), or 5 payments for football (deposit, plus March 1, April 1, May 1, June 1 and July 1).
d) For the sake of explaining clearly how our payment plans work, if you register April 15 for cheer, you will be required to pay the deposit, plus the March 1 and April 1 payments, and then payment #3 will be due on May 1. The earlier you register, the more cost effective the payment plan will be for your family.
e) If you register your child(ren) all in one session, you will have the ability to put everything into one payment plan. If you register in separate sessions, you will be able to add multiple payment plans, but the terms will be the same. For example, if your payment plans total $100 on the first of each month, it could be $100 on one payment plan, or $50 in two separate charges on the first of each month.
