Equipment Handout & 1st Week Expectations


If you are not available you will be given your equipment once practice starts.  Our equipment reps will offer specific days/times when those who still need equipment issued can meet them.  These volunteer board members are also coaches so please make every effort possible to attend on the set date(s) so they lose minimal coaching time with their teams.

Hand out will be held at the equipment shed (corner of Shakertown and Grange Hall) for football players and in the block building (top of the hill behind Ankeney) for cheerleaders. Please park in the school parking lot and see the board members inside the concessions trailer first to hand in all paperwork.

What if I have several athletes in different grades?  We ask that you make every effort to bring each athlete to their own to their specific grade slot in order to keep the group as small as possible.  We understand this will mean several trips for some families and thank you in advance for your understanding as we all navigate the safest way possible to execute our seasons.

What do I need to bring?  Cheerleaders need to wear a swimsuit so they can try on the cheer skirt and shell.  Football players are suggested to wear a t-shirt similar to what they will have on under their shoulder pads for proper fitting.

Paperwork: we are asking that all paperwork be turned in at the concessions trailer in the parking lot. If your paperwork is complete you will be issued an orange practice band that MUST BE WORN on the first day of practice.  For the complete list of paperwork required, please go to our website where you can print forms.

How Equipment Hand Out Works:

Upon arrival you will stop at the concessions trailer where you will be checked in.  You will sign for and be given your fundraiser tickets if you have not already received them.  This is your FINAL opportunity to opt out of the fundraiser.  The $120 fee will need to be paid at that time, credit card transactions are charged a fee.  You will have your paperwork confirmed for completion and issued an orange practice band, DO NOT LOSE THIS.  For the complete list of paperwork required, please go to our website where you can print forms.

You will then be given a hand out form and directed to either the cheer or the football areas where you will be fitted.

Once you have received your equipment you will sign your form, tear off your copy, and place the rest in the basket marked for your sport.   At that time you are done until the first day of practice.

* REMINDER: CHEER NEEDS TO WEAR A SWIMSUIT.  We are in the block building, there is not a private place to change.

* You will be filling out the equipment form.

* This is your last opportunity to opt out of the fundraiser.

* PAPER WORK IS TURNED IN AT EQUIPMENT HAND OUT THIS YEAR.  We will not accept partial paperwork.


First Day of Practice:

Ankeney Middle School, July 25th.

Check in begins at 5:30. 

Equipment is NOT needed the first day of practice.  Please wear comfortable athletic clothing, cleats for all football players, and bring PLENTY of water.

If you DO NOT have an orange practice band, you need to report to the check in table first.  

CHECK IN TABLE: Members who still need to turn in complete paperwork will do so here. For the complete list of paperwork required, please go to our website where you can print forms. Once all of your paperwork has been verified your athletes will be given an orange practice band.  Without this band they will not be able to participate in practice. If you have not already signed for your fundraiser tickets, you will do that here as well.  Please note, the deadline to opt out of the fundraiser is equipment hand out, no payment will be accepted for opt out once practice begins. 

If you DO have an orange practice band you are able to go directly to the practice field.  


Do parents need to stay for practice? All bantam athletes are required to have an adult on property at all times.  We will have designated areas for parents to sit. Parents will not be able to sit right on the field lines.

What if I won’t be in town the first practice(s)? Please make sure we know if you will not be at practice the first day.  When you do come to practice, you will need to go to the block building to turn in your paperwork and sign for your fundraiser tickets before entering the practice field.
