Last and Final Equipment Check-in (No Matter the Weather)

Last and Final Equipment Check-in (No Matter the Weather)

We did not plan on having and additional equipment check-in however one of our teams chose to go to a tournament this past weekend and needs to turn their equipment in. Therefor we will allow anyone that has not turned in their equipment to do so at this time.

Check In Time: Thursday November 17th 4-5pm
Location: Richmond City B&W Pavilion around 50 S State Street in Richmond Utah
The trailers will be under the pavilion so weather is not a factor.

This will be the last equipment check in. Equipment deposit checks will be deposited the following day for those that do not turn in equipment.

Equipment Check-In Tonight – Instructions!

EQUIPMENT CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

Equipment Check-In is here. We have two days available for you to bring your equipment. The dates are tonight, Thursday Oct. 27 5-7pm & Tuesday Nov 1 5-7pm. The trailers will be parked at Forrester Acres and there will be board members there to help you check everything in. The instructions for cleaning your equipment must be followed.

Check in date: Thursday Oct. 27 5-7pm & Tuesday Nov 1 5-7pm

HELMET:

Interior: The inside pads are held in by velcro and/or snaps. Carefully remove them from the helmet. If the pads are screwed DO NOT unscrew them just clean the best you can. Rub liquid dish soap directly on each pad to remove oil and dirt. Submerge and wash each pad in hot, soapy water. Rinse the pads before drying them with a soft towel.

Exterior: DO NOT remove the stripes or Bobcat decal, but DO remove all other decorative/team stickers. If there is a manufacturer or warning sticker leave it alone (try not to scrub it as the lettering will rub off). Use an SOS pad or “Magic Eraser” to scrub the helmet. Try to remove ALL paint and scuffs. Clean the facemask.

PLEASE REASSEMBLE YOUR HELMET AFTER IT IS CLEAN—WE WILL NOT ACCEPT IT UNLESS IT IS PUT BACK TOGETHER SO PAY ATTENTION TO HOW YOU TOOK IT APART!!

Thoroughly cleaning the helmets will help us get a better price on reconditioning .

SHOULDER PADS: Remove any tape and knots on straps. Pull up lace and lock tight. Fully submerge the shoulder pads in dishsoap and water to remove dirt and odor. Wipe the pads and hang to dry. They must be DRY or we can’t accept them back wet. If there is no lace lock tie the laces in a bow.

PANT PADS: Rub liquid dish soap right on the pads to remove oil and dirt. Submerge and wash pads in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry.

PANTS: Remove knots from laces. Machine wash in warm water and detergent. Dry on a low setting. Do not bleach, dry clean, or iron.

PANTS WITH PADS: Remove knots from laces. Machine wash warm and hang dry

PLEASE COME TO THE CHECK IN WITH YOUR EQUIPMENT CLEAN!! 🙂

There will NOT be anywhere for you to clean it at check in. The helmet takes lots of time to thoroughly clean and remove the stickers. Please plan accordingly before you come to equipment check in.

EVERYTHING MUST BE COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE IT IS TURNED IN.

Thank you!

 

SVYF Update 10/17

To the Parents of SVYF:

We are aware that some of you, maybe all of you, have received a threatening letter from the attorney of Jevin.  This is the mess we have been dealing with all season.  We have representing legal counsel from Olsen & Hoggan Attorneys at Law in Logan to help us with this case.  This threatening letter is designed to scare and panic parents into paying.  Please do not respond, or pay a dime to Jevin.  You as parents have done nothing wrong or committed any fraud as stated in the letter from Jevin.  Nor has Sky View Youth Football.  Remember we did nothing wrong, we were the victims in this. If Jevin would have paid us our money when they were supposed to we would not have had any of this mess.

We are currently working with Olsen & Hoggan to respond as needed both to Jevin and to you as parents.  We are trying to get a letter by tomorrow.  We have talked to 4 other groups who say they are missing money. A reporter working with one of those groups told us he has uncovered 15 groups just this year who have had money issues with Jevin. We stood up to Jevin and it seems they did not like that at all.  We will be strong and we will not back down. Please understand that we as a Sky View Youth Football board are aware of the concern and hassle this is to you as parents.  We have tried to ensure that your kids have had a good and enjoyable season while dealing with this headache that was not brought on by anything we did.  We have over 100 pages of supporting documentation we have submitted to our attorney regarding this mess.  Again you as parents are not legally liable for this and that will not change no matter how many demanding letters Jevin sends out.

Why does Jevin feel they are owed money? When Jevin failed to pay the amount of money that was owed to SVYF we had no other choice but to take the legal and law enforcement route.  We were counseled to send out the case number to parents and have them do all they could to get their money back.  Some parents were able to get money back and then paid us.  Some banks and credit cards took the entire 8 weeks or longer that they had to figure out the fraudulent claim.  Then Jevin turned around and paid us the full original amount of money owed to us knowing full well there were people who got their money back.  Jevin then claimed to the banks, when they did their investigating, that they paid us the money.  Some banks pulled the money back out and gave it to back to Jevin.  This has become an accounting nightmare for all involved.  The board has spent hundreds of hours to trying to sort this out.

During the summer when Jevin first approached us about getting money back we told them that we would work through the accounting nightmare they caused which would require contacting all of the parents involved.  After doing all of this, we thought that we were close to having it complete and giving Jevin the money that was collected by us, minus all extra fees that SVYF incurred because of not having our funds when needed which was over $6,000.  Jevin turned around and added thousands of dollars in fees and other charge backs that we were unaware of and were unaccounted for.  Jevin is claiming that we owe over $20,000 back to them.  That is outrageous.   Because of Jevin’s unwillingness to pay us when they were supposed to, the fees that where accrued and the extra time and resources that have been required on the part of the board and parents exceeds any amount owed to Jevin.  But because we want to make sure everything is done legally and honestly we have turned everything over to legal counsel to determine the amount if any is owed.

We will keep you informed.

Thanks,
SVYF Board

End of Season Letter

Sky View Youth Football Parents:
 
Well, we are at the end of the regular season play. I can’t believe the season has come and gone. It has been stressful at time, crazy at time, but always FUN. I love watching your players develop their football skills. I love seeing them gain friends and buddies. I love seeing them learn lessons that will benefit them throughout their life. I had one parent tell me that it had been an awesome year for her son, they are newer to the area, and her son was starting a new school and was nervous, but when he got to school and had one of his teammates in every class it helped make the transitions easier. There are so many great things that can come from youth sports. Thanks to everyone who has helped make this year great!
 
As we wrap up the season there are a few items to make you aware of, or remind you of.
 
POST SEASON PLAY
 
The WFFL has decided to do a Jr. Mite (2nd & 3rd graders) playoffs. This will affect our Jr Mite team where they are tied for first in their division right now. They are tied with the team that they are playing Saturday at noon at Forster acres. Come support them if you would like.
 
As of right now it looks like we will have 7 of our teams going to the playoffs. Great Job!
 
We have several more who have decided to play in the Octoberfest next Saturday. The details for both the playoffs and the Octoberfest will come out next week.
 
TEAM PARTIES, GIFTS ETC…
 
I know that team moms are starting to plan end of season get togethers. We added something new this year to our registration.
 
$15 Team Fee – This is new this year. We know that in the past there is other money that ends up being paid out by parents, coaches, and the team moms for team parties, gifts, pizza and other stuff. From now on the team mom will be given a budget and all team activities will run out of that budget. You will not be asked for any other monetary donation, the rest of the season. You may be asked to help with a spirit treat, or a half time poster or something like that. But that would be all.
 
We as a board would like to make a few suggestions as you plan the end of your get togethers. These suggestions are based of feedback from coaches and parents.
 
1- There is no need for participation gifts. This puts a ton of pressure on team moms and parents to find an awesome gift, sometimes it even feels like a competition. And when you have multiple kids playing it becomes that when they compare what gift they got for playing football. Playing football, all the time that goes into practice and game, plus all the fun treats and pizza parties etc… should be enough of a reward. It is okay for us to teach our children that just being involved and being a part of something is enough. That being said if a team takes first in region, SVYF gets them trophies.
 
2- Most coaches feel the same way; they don’t need a gift. They appreciate the thought, and are good with a thank you as much as anything. We give the team moms a picture of each coach and their son to use as a thank you.
 
3- We ask that the team parties are not held at a restaurant or place that would ask families to pay out more money. Jump Zone, Fun Park, etc…
 
4- We suggest a get together at a someone’s house or a park with a light potluck or even just have everyone bring a treat to share. Some of the teams have had a tail gate party of sorts and that has been fun as well… Many of the teams will watch a highlight video. Let the kids enjoy time together and that is enough. This is not something that has to be bigger and better than last year or than the next team. JUST HAVE FUN!
 
5- We give each team mom a team budget, this money could have been used throughout the season or saved for the party, team moms, please just don’t ask for more donation.
 
EQUIPMENT CHECK IN
 
Right now we have it on the calendar to do two days of equipment check in, Oct 18th & Nov 1st. We will be sending out more info. One suggestion – do not wait to clean your stuff! It takes several days to dry out. Once your games are done, start cleaning your equipment right away so everything can be dried out by check in. If we put wet equipment in the trailer it can cause molding. We will be very strict on the cleaning of equipment this year. If it is not clean when you return it, you will not receive your equipment deposit back.
 
VOLUNTEER HOURS
 
We will also be strict with volunteer hours. We have had plenty of places for volunteering, and times when we have had to round up and even pay help. If you did not sign up to help and get your hours you will be charged for each hour not completed, this off sets when we have to pay for help.
 
Thank you for your continued support!
 
Breanne Young and the SVYF Board

ENTIRE SEASON VOLUNTEER SPOTS ARE OPEN!

HURRY! We have just added volunteer spots for the rest of the season! 

We have open spots and we need LOTS of volunteers – this is a great time to get your hours done! Hurry over to the website and sign up to help before the best spots are gone!

We are still short volunteers at almost every game. We really need all of the spots filled – it makes for chaos at the fields if we don’t have enough volunteers.

http://svyouthfootball.org/sign-ups/

There are no plans to have volunteer opportunities after the season is over. If you do not complete your hours, we will have to keep your deposit. Please get signed up so that doesn’t happen!
