NEW Weight Requirements for 2008
Second chance: The weight limit for 7-12 year olds is 150 lbs and 140 lbs for 13 year olds. If a child fails the first weigh-in, they will be eligible for ONE re-weigh during one of the 2008 regular registration sessions listed above if they did not exceed the weight limit for their age group by more than 10 pounds. If a 7 – 12 year old weighs in at 161 pounds or more or a 13 year old weighs in at 151 pounds or more they will not be eligible to play Kennewick Grid Kids Football in 2008. There will be no exceptions.
Pre-weighs are not allowed, NO EXCEPTIONS. No prospective player will be allowed to test their weight on the Grid Kids scale.
Try-Outs will be held on Saturday, August 2nd (see times by age below), at Eastgate Park (near the Benton-Franklin Fairgrounds).
You will need to wear your full uniform, bring a water bottle, and be prepared to show the Head Coaches and Squad Coaches your skill level. They will run you though a series of basic football maneuvers, short sprints, etc.
If you are unable to attend Try-Outs, you will be placed on a team after the draft. All players registered will be assigned to a team.
Try-Out times stagger by age group. Try-Out times by age group are as follows:
8 year olds – 11 am
9 year olds – 12 pm
10 year olds – 12:30 pm
11 year olds – 1 pm
12 – 13 year olds – 1:30 pm
A couple of days after the Try-Outs, the coaches will get together and draft new players to fill in their teams. You will then receive a telephone call informing you of the team you have been selected for and practice times/location.
