Each Football player and Cheer Athlete is required to submit a deposit postdated check for $200 in order to recieve their equipment & uniforms. This check will not be cashed and will be returned to each player when they turn in their equipment after the season has concluded. We will collect these checks at equipment hand out in July.

MANDATORY VOLUNTEER DEPOSIT:

Tahoma Jr. Bears Football and Cheer is a non-profit organization that is based entirely on the volunteer efforts of the coaches and board members. But we also need your help. A $200 Volunteer deposit postdated check PER athlete is also required. We will hold these postdated checks (similar to the equipment checks). Your uncashed check will be returned to you as long as you volunteer a minimum of 4 hours per athlete registered. Alternatively, you can "buy out" volunteer time by just paying the money as well if that's what they would prefer. We also will collect these checks at equipment hand out in July.
