Before you register and make your payment to LPR, please register on the CHAP site first, so I can have your contact information for the team roster.
Here is the link to the LPR site to officially register and make your payment. You can wait to see how many teams we’ll have before you register and pay, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of a refund if we don’t have enough players. You will need to register with the Lansing Parks & Rec by Sept. 4th.
You can save $5 and register online. The registration fee is $45 for Lansing Residents and $50 for Non-Residents.
Please designate CHAP for the team request.
Help spread the word, we need more 2/3 grade players at this time.
email [email protected] with any questions.
Kirk Cousins Football Camp
Each year I have the privilege to run the Kirk Cousins Camp on Hope's campus. We are trying to get more students involved from the Lansing area and I was hoping you might be able to share the attached flyer at Lansing Christian and maybe other schools. It is an awesome camp and many participants attend who do not play football. Kirk is present the entire two days and does a great job of engaging with campers. If you know of any other people I could connect with I would be grateful. Thanks and have a great day.

Detroit Lions Football Camp
Please see the attached flyer for a brand new camp that has been created through a partnership between CAL-A and the Detroit Lions Youth organization. It is a football camp for FAMILIES, yes, parents get to be a part of it! It is the Four Quarters Camp, and has been designed to appeal to the Christian community. We will be highlighting Family, Fun and Fellowship in the context of Football. We want to encourage Dads to be involved in their kids lives, help assure Moms that there has been tremendous safety improvements in the game that the media NEVER talks about, and show the importance of community leadership that can be accomplished when all work together for the good of kids playing...that it is not all about winning!
We would like to perfect this camp and repeat running it throughout the state. Please prayerfully consider families who may want to be a part of this and spread the word, via the attached flyer. The camp is in Lansing, conveniently not far from I-96. It will be on Saturday, May 30th, so we should have some great weather (Prayerfully!)
Even if you are not interested, please consider coming or sending someone from your team to view this. We would like feedback on how to make it better. Also, if you would be interested in helping coach or serve at the camp on that day, please let me know ASAP!

Tackle Football Camp
The Christian Athletic League of America (CALA) has been offered 10 free spots (an $85 value) at the upcoming MYAA Football Champ Camp (http://allevents.in/livonia/myaa-football-champ-camp-2014/1442049619374663) . This camp is available to current 2-8th graders (2013-2014 school year) and will be held at Livonia Stevenson High School, on June 23, 24 and 25. Athletic shoes and a good attitude is all that will be needed!
If you would like to participate, please contact Boyd Meyers at [email protected] by June 19th. We would like to offer this to 5 CHAP families and friends as well as 5 to Christian School students. We will try to entertain all requests. If we exceed 10 with interest, we may need to jockey around a little, perhaps asking families to offer a slight donation, that added up, would allow for another participant, or perhaps ask families who have multiple players or invite friends to perhaps go half price on registration. Anyway, we won’t know this until we know who wants to go, so please do not hesitate and contact CAL-A (www.cal-a.net) today.
For those of you interested in playing Tackle Football this Fall, go to the league website for more information, http://www.cal-a.net/home.php.
As of now, we don't have a coach for the High School team, so if you are interested in helping out or coaching then contact Keith Hall at [email protected]. If CHAP does not end up with a team of its own, there is still an opportunity to play through a League sponsored team.
