Padded Camp Information FAQs
What equipment will I need to provide?
Players will need padded pants and cleats. Players should try to wear a comfortable football cleat, but can participate in tennis shoes. The Franklin Cowboys will provide helmets, shoulder pads and a mouthpiece on the fitting days prior to camp. If you have your own helmet and/or shoulder pads they must be NOCSAE certified and in good condition.
When do I pick-up Equipment?
We will be issuing equipment on Saturday, June 12th & June 19th, 10am - 1pm. Players must be present for proper fitting. Equipment will be returned after the last camp on Thursday. Equipment distribution is held at Jim Warren Park.
Can I Get a Refund?
If, after registration, your child is unable to participate, a partial refund may be available. All requests for refunds must be done in writing and will only be considered if a participant is unable to attend the session(s) they were originally signed-up to attend. Refunds will not be issued after the first day of camp.
What if I have any Issues or Concerns?
We want to know your concerns and opinions in order to provide a better program and environment for your child. Please do not wait until the end of the camp to report a problem or concern, let us know immediately so we can try to resolve the issue and make the event more enjoyable for everyone.
Make sure the player has plenty of water. The concessions stand will not be open for Camp. Sport drinks are OK, but water is best! Do not bring carbonated beverages. Make sure to label the bottle or thermos with the child’s name.
Can I Leave My Child Alone at Camp?
We strongly discourage dropping off the player/cheerleader and leaving the premises. If you have to leave, you MUST notify one of the coaches and make sure they have a way to contact you in the event of an emergency. Return to the practice area before the finish to pick up the child.
What are some of the Facility Rules?
The public walking trails which circle around the fields must be kept clear and free of any obstructions that would hinder those walking. Please do not bring bicycles or scooter into the spectator area.
Where Should I Park?
Parking will be an issue due to the large amount of participants in the Cowboys organization, as well as Franklin Baseball Club. Please remember these important rules; DO NOT park in front of the gate at the entrance off Boyd Mill Ave. This is the only access for emergency vehicles to enter Fields 1 & 2. Respect the Handicap Parking Zones - unauthorized vehicles will be towed at owner’s expense. DO NOT speed through the parking lot. Park only in designated parking slots - do not park on any grass area or medians - this includes Boyd Mill Ave. and Twin Oaks Drive.
What Happens if it Rains?
The most-asked question – Do we practice and/or play in the rain? And the answer is . . . if it is sprinkling – we practice. If it is pouring and/or lightning – we usually will not practice. An e-mail will be sent to all camp participants and notice posted on the website in the event of cancellation due to weather.
