2019 Registration Information
Online registration for the 2019 Broncos Football and Cheer Season will open on March 1st, 2019. Registration for cheer is open through the end of May, and registration for football is open through the end of June. Registration fees have once again remained the same as last year and you will have the option to pay either online or offline. As we have done in the past years, all football and cheerleaders must register online, at which time your 2019 TeamSnap account is activated.
For online registration, please visit www.longislandbroncos.com, select Register from the main menu, and then follow a few steps to register your child for the upcoming football and cheer season. If you have an existing TeamSnap account from last year, log-in and you can simply select your child(ren) and their information will transfer from last year.
When you reach the payment page, you have three options:
1) Online - pay in full. Payment can be made via credit card or direct debit from your bank account.
2) Online with Installment Payments (pay $100 deposit per child, and the remaining balance is divided and automatically billed over two consecutive months). The Installment Plan will only be an option for registrations completed by April 30th.
***For options 1 & 2, WePay charges a fee for their online payment services (credit card fee of 2.99% of the transaction + $0.99, or direct debit fee of 1.99% + $0.99).
3) Offline payment - to pay offline, complete registration online and select “Offline Payment”. You will be given a receipt to print out and the mailing address to mail payment to. There is no fee for offline payments, but payment must be in the form of a personal check. Credit cards are not accepted if paying offline, and all checks must be received by May 31, 2019. Registration for football remains open through June, but after May 31st, payments must be submitted online.
4) There will be an additional fee of $25 for any late registrations/payments that are received after May 31st (Cheer) and June 30th (Football).

We are looking forward to a great 2019 season!
Plan for 5/6 Year Olds in 2019
In 2018, the Broncos introduced a new program, our Broncos “Thunder” 5/6 year old modified football team. The team practiced at SNP with the other Bronco teams, took part in all the Bronco activities, but there was no contact and they competed in flag football games in the Under Armour Under the Lights league in Massapequa. It was a great option for those who weren’t quite ready for contact football, but wanted to learn the game, and begin the transition to tackle football. We also ran a 5/6 tackle team in 2018 with the plan initially being to only run the modified team in 2019. This decision was based on national, and local, declining participation rates, specifically at the younger ages, and us believing the modified program would draw in more participants, who in turn would transition into tackle football at the age of 7.
This offseason there has been discussion and questions raised as to whether this plan is still in place for 2019. The answer is yes, however, if there is enough interest in us running a tackle/contact team for 5/6 year olds, we would be willing to run it alongside the modified team. This tackle team would be contingent on having enough players, as well as volunteers willing to coach the team. As a result, we ask that if you are interested in having your 5/6 year old play tackle football this coming 2019 season, please register ASAP. Before making a decision, we must see if it is even a possibility.
In addition, we have recently been informed from the Under Armour Flag Football League that they intend to add a new division for the fall league. Last season our 5/6 year old Thunder team competed in the 1st/2nd grade division, and as a result, was severely outmatched. This year, Under Armour plans on, if enough players register, offering a Kindergarten division in addition to the 1st/2nd grade division. This additional division affects our already open Thunder registration. As such, we have rostered those already registered for Thunder into their grade appropriate team (either Thunder K, or Thunder 1/2). Also, we will not limit the Thunder team to 5/6 for the upcoming year, but will also make it an option for those who will be in 2nd grade in the 2019/20 school year. Of course, the status of both teams depends on having the necessary players and coaches, so please spread the word. Thank you.
2018 was a great Bronco season, and we’re looking forward to an even bigger and better 2019!
