Yes, each player will need the following items:
- practice pants
- practice jersey
- shoulder pads
- pads for pants
- VEGAS GOLD ONLY helmet with DARK GREEN facemask
- football girdle and pads to protect the lower body that is needed for the game day pants
A suggestion is that IF you need to purchase your player a new helmet, to do so directly from the vendor of your choice – Riddell, Schutt, Xenith. PLEASE order your player's helmet months in advance if at all possible. Usually, helmets are in high demand in the Spring season, which could possibly cause shipping delays.
During online registration each player will have the option to enter three jersey number preferences in priority order. Upon selection to a team, players will be assigned a jersey number. There is no guarantee players will be awarded one of the three numbers entered during online registration. If one of the three numbers entered is not available, the jersey numbers are then randomly assigned. Should an age group have more than one team, there will be no duplicate numbers between the teams. The determination of which player receives which number is based 100% upon seniority.

I have not had a chance to get a physical for my child, when do I need to have the physical turned in?
All documentation/paperwork must be turned in prior to the player entering the football field for evaluations.
With so many close-by associations and some coaches moving around to other associations, does it really matter where my child plays football?
Your child would have a competitive advantage for Grayson high school in later years. The GAA football program is aligned with the high school offense and defense, as are many other associations. It has been witnessed many times at the older levels and high school that GAA players have the competitive edge for positions already knowing the system and drills from the 8th grade and up. Bottom line is we highly encourage children to sign up for their youth associations aligned with their high school they are going to attend.
A discount for multiple child participation in the same sport/activity will be deducted from the registration fee in 10% increments based on each additional child. Example, 2nd child is 10% discount, 3rd child is 20% discount, and 4th child is 30% from the total cost of registration.
What if my child changes his mind and decides he does not want to play, how do I get a refund once I have registered?
The refund policy for the Grayson Athletic Association is there is NO REGISTRATION REFUNDS allowed in any sport or activity. Exceptions may be made by the GAA Executive Board. **NO REFUNDS will be given for player registrations should there be a 2023 GFL Season

Does my child have to be present at the drive-thru paperwork drop-of to get sized for his jersey and pants?
THIS IS BEST...Our uniform vendor WILL be present Saturday, March 11th and Saturday, May 13th, and players WILL have the opportunity to get fitted for proper sizing. It is IMPERATIVE the correct sizes are submitted for your player’s jersey and game day pants for this season because the uniforms are going to be CUSTOM and there will NOT be an opportunity to swap pants nor jerseys if they are too big or too small…NO EXCEPTIONS! It is highly recommended that players are present for one of the paperwork drop-off / uniform fitting. If you are unsure about your player’s sizes & need guidance...Please bring your player to get fitted Saturday, March 11th or Saturday, May 13th. **PLEASE NOTE ** You are responsible for submitting CORRECT uniform sizes for your player. If wrong uniform sizes are submitted GAA is NOT responsible and will NOT cover the cost to replace the incorrectly sized item.
