In an effort to eliminate some of the confusion that may arise in a high school sports program, this page has been created to help new and existing parents navigate the various constituencies of Canyon Football as well as understand what is expected of players and parents in our program. Canyon is one of the most successful programs in the region because of the efforts of coaches, players and parent all contributing to help the program excel.
The Canyon Football program runs year round, with various phases throughout the year. While the season typically runs from August through December, coaches, players and parents are involved in varying degrees during the entire year.
fees, expenses, and fundraising
Running a program of this size and quality is extremely expensive, and with recent budget cutbacks the school only covers a portion of the cost of running the program. The Canyon Cowboys Football Booster Club has two main purposes. The first is to serve as an interface between parents, the school, and the coaches. The second is to provide fundraising to help support the program and lower the cost per family required to run the program. In addition to assisting with fundraising, each family is expected to contribute to help cover the costs of equipment, coaches, transportation, fields, and stadium costs needed to run the program.
This year’s family contribution is $550 per player. Payment plans are available and we have multiple programs available to help offset this through fundraising programs.
Contributions are due on August 19th.
Players will not be allowed to begin fall camp without being medically cleared. If your player did not participate in summer camp then please have your doctor complete the physical form (contact us if you need a copy). It must be submitted online at www.athleticclearance.com. Please note this process could take some time given the summer break, DO NOT wait until the last week to complete your physical.
One way parents can help support Canyon Football (and offset their family contribution) is by finding new sponsors in our community. The form below outlines the many ways local businesses may sponsor Cowboy football and promote their business.
