Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Player Sign-ups/Registration

When are sign-ups?

Player registration begins in February or March each year and continues through July or until teams fill up.

Where are sign-ups held?

All player and cheerleader registration is  online and can be accessed from the main page of our website: www.edmondswarriors.com.

If you are new to Edmonds Warriors Junior Football you will complete three steps to register your son or daughter:
1.    Create a parent account (i.e., adult account)
2.    Add your child’s information
3.    Register your child

When do we need to sign-up?

Registration is on a first come, first served basis.  You can register any time before August if there are any open spots.  Every year we have teams that fill as early as May or as late as August.  Signing up earlier insures your spot and it helps us with our planning, ordering and budgeting.  If you wait, you are increasing the likelihood that you may miss out.

Can I make payments?

Yes.  When you complete the online registration, select “Pay Offline” at checkout.  You can make payments by check by mail or in person, or by credit/debit card in the online registration site.

When do I need to pay?

You must be paid in full prior to player suit-ups which take place in late July.  Player suit-ups are by appointment and you must be paid in full to make your appointment.

Do you offer refunds?

No.  There are a lot of historical reasons for this policy, but the simple explanation is that a “no refunds” policy eliminates many potential issues. If you have any doubts your child will play and don't want to forfeit your registration fee - you should not register.
