Equipment to be Purchased by the Player!  

Please be advised that Fox-Rok Athletic Association is NOT responsible for any personal purchases of equipment.   

  • Mouth Piece
  • Athletic Supporter
  • Molded Spikes (No screw-on spikes permitted per league rules.)
  • Helmet -  Each registered player is required to purchase their own football helmet.  These helmets are available at Lloyd Sixsmith Sporting Goods, located at 7554 Frankford Avenue under the Fox-Rok Athletic Association's discounted price of $80.00.  

How to Register!

 

To register for any sport with the Fox-Rok Athletic Association go to www.foxrokaa.com and click on “Register” that is located in the upper right hand corner of our home page.   You will then need to click on “Create New Account or “Login” if you have not already created an account.  As a reminder, you must first have an account before you can register your child/children.  You can also register on our football registration page.  The process is easy.  
 

Once you have created an account, you then need to list your child/children before you can choose a program to play in.  Select “Add Participant.”  Enter the child’s name and complete all of the required fields.  If you have more children to register, don’t select “Next.”  Select “Add Another Participate.”  Once you have added all of your children you should select “Next.”

After you have entered all of your children only then will the system allow you to select the available program for that child or children.  Make your selection.  Continue to complete the necessary fields until you have completed your order.  You will receive an email confirmation after you have successfully completed the process.           

After the first time you register your child/children the system will remember your information!  You will only need to update a few lines as opposed to starting from scratch when registering for all other Fox-Rok sports.  

Please note, if you want to coach or volunteer in any way you must create an account online and state your interest.  The program is set up to ask if you have a desire to volunteer and in what role.   

To get on the mailing list you must create an account online.

Concerning Registrations!

Registration cutoff dates are established mainly to ensure that uniforms and the necessary equipment needs can be identified and ordered in time to be received before the start of the playing season.  This is the case for each sport offering at Fox-Rok A.A.  Occasionally we have situations where we may require additional players to prevent a team or teams from folding and will solicit players by posting these openings on our website.  That is the only time we will accept registrations after the established cutoff date.  This website provides ample notice time for registration of all sports.  On our website, at the top of each sport page, it states the month of when registrations are held and the duration of the season.  It is provided for your planning purposes.  Next registration for football will be held online in the month of June.

Season End - Return of Equipment

In the past, Fox-Rok Football has not been successful in retrieving all loaned equipment (shoulder pads, helmets, padded pants) back from our players/families after the season has concluded. If the equipment is not returned, the cost of registration goes up the following year because new equipment must be purchased. This year, in an effort to prevent escalating registration costs and to reduce the burden of organizing a return date, loaned equipment will be collected after the last game of the player's season. A plastic "trash" bag will be supplied to each player by the coach for the return of equipment at that time. Please make sure you bring a change of clothes for your son to the last game of the season.
