WHO DO YOU COMPETE AGAINST?

We are a Recreation level tackle football team.

In 2024 we will be playing teams in Bluffton, Hardeeville, Beaufort, Rincon, and Allendale.   We do offer carpooling/travel assistance if needed.  The kids have fun riding together!!

REGISTRATION?

We utilize in person registration, though we can mail or email you the paperwork in advance.  This allows us to better meet and talk with parents and players which improves communication.   

Our email is lowcolightning@gmail.com

RAIN POLICY?

We do practice in light to medium rain.   Games will continue to be played in those conditions as well.

If it's hard rain, heavy thunder, or lightning we will cancel.  We try to make that decision about 30 minutes prior to practice to make the most accurate judgement, as weather here changes very quickly.

Please note that if the owners of any field we use determine the field to be "too wet," we will have to cancel and this is out of our control.

REFUND POLICY

Full refunds given if the player drops the program before the second game or has a season-ending injury.

NO Refunds given after second game, no exceptions.
