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 email@example.com.
Online registration for our 2020 season of football, cheer and dance is now OPEN. If you have any difficulty registering, or have questions, 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.
