RJW encourages and supports the development of well-rounded individuals. This may include a variety of activities and interests. However, for a youth football/cheerleading program to flourish, it requires the commitment of its participants, parents, and coaches. Practice during August is of paramount importance in how a team develops, both physically and in terms of its personnel being evaluated by the coaching staff. Therefore, players are expected to be at every practice. Coaches recommend that vacations be taken prior to the beginning of the football/cheer season. Participants are also strongly encouraged to attend camps but not mandatory.
Practice shall not begin prior to the 31st of July.
No team shall practice more than 10 hours prior to Jamboree.
No team may practice more than 6 hours after Jamboree.
Each association will determine their own conditioning program prior to contact/stunting.
A week is defined as 7 calendar days beginning on Monday and ending on Sunday.
Playoff & championship weeks: teams may practice 10 hours per week.
All practices must comply with CA.AB2127 per H.S concussion rule for 10-hour weeks and be limited to 4 hours of full contact practices for 6-hour weeks thereafter and when applicable.
Practice is mandatory. If a player misses practice during the week, that player’s eligibility for participation in that week’s game is at the sole discretion of the coaching staff.
X-Man will wear SYF authorized (Only) sticker on the rear of the helmet.

Your registration fee ensures your child’s opportunity to learn about cheerleading and the game of football in accordance with the policies and procedures of the Sacramento Youth Football (SYF) League and in combination with the Rosemont Jr. Wolverines Cheer & Football program, as outlined on both websites:
RJW requests an annual volunteer fee of $50 in the form of cash to be paid prior to any credits towards your 2018 registration fees. The volunteer fee is per family and will be refunded upon the completion of a minimum of eight (8) hours per child or twelve (12) per family of qualified volunteer work. Parent involvement is crucial to Rosemont Jr. Wolverines Cheer and Football Program's ongoing success. Each team is responsible for supplying the necessary manpower to help with game day (home & away) operations (e.g. announcing, chain crew, clock, par, snack bar, participant snacks). Without the necessary help, we will be forced to forfeit scheduled games.
In addition, to the game-day needs, many other various fundraising activities are needed throughout the season. You will need to sign up for volunteer slots and they are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are unable to fulfill a slot you signed up for, please find a replacement or someone to trade with or contact the volunteer coordinator immediately so the slot can be filled in a timely manner. This will help our games run smoothly.
Please take care of uniforms by washing them and storing them in a safe place. If your child is a football player, please return them to your coach in the manner he/she requests.
The primary communication tools used by RJW are GroupMe and email (email@example.com). We ask that you provide a valid email in order to receive important information regarding camps, practices, game day, and any other important information regarding cheer and football. Weekly emails will be sent once the season kicks off, so pelase keep a look out for those important emails.
GroupMe has ben another effective way of communicating amongst teams without their own group chats to coordinate snacks, carpool, volunteer shifts as well as any other team-specific information. This tool is not to be used for discussing wins, losses, or playing time or to complain about coaching or staff members. If you do so, you will be removed by the board and will not be permittd to return to the chat group for the remainder of the season. If you wish to be excluded from this communication tool, please notify your child's coach, team mom, or the parent coordinator.
