Parent Information

In an effort to eliminate some of the confusion that may arise in a high school sports program, this page has been created to help new and existing parents navigate the various constituencies of Los Alamitos Football as well as understand what is expected of players and parents in our program.  Los Alamitos is one of the most successful programs in the country because of the efforts of coaches, players and parent all contributing to help the program excel.

Parent Expectations & Information

The Los Alamitos Football program runs year round, with various phases throughout the year.  While the season typically runs from August through Decemberc. Coaches, players and parents are involved in varying degrees during the entire year.

Fees, Expenses and Fundraising

Running a program of this size and quality is extremely expensive, and with recent budget cutbacks the school only covers a portion of the cost of running the program.  The Los Alamitos Griffins Football Booster Club has two main purposes.  The first is to serve as an interface between parents, the school, and the coaches.  The second is to provide fundraising to help support the program and lower the cost per family required to run the program. In addition to assisting with fundraising, each family is expected to contribute to help cover the costs of equipment, coaches, transportation, fields, and stadium costs needed to run the program.

  1.  Player Transportation Fee-this fee of $200 is required for a player to join the other players on the buses used to transport players and coaches to each game.  MANDATORY - DUE 8/1/22
  2.  Family Contribution-Families are expected to contribute to help fund the cost of the program. This year's contribution is $550 per player due on or before 8/1/22.  A payment plan is available for families.  Please communicate directly with Jim & Christy Berthon to set up your personal payment plan. 
  3. Fundraising - The Booster Club sponsors various fundraising events to help offset any additional costs to families.  Becoming a Booster Member, assisting with fundraising, and volunteering at events all help offset some of the program costs.

Player Physicals

Players will not be allowed to begin practice in August without being medically cleared. Each player is required to have a physical and submit the physical form to the Activities Office at Los Alamitos High School.  You also need to update your information on www.athleticclearance.com so your player can be cleared through Athletic Clearance by the Activities Office. If your player is not cleared prior to August 1, 2022, your player will be unable to participate in the football program until clearance is received.  Please note this process could take some time given the summer break, DO NOT wait until the last week to complete your physical. 

Getting Connected

All Fundraisers and required registrations are propagated on this website. Forms are available below and many of our programs have online registration by using the PARENTS tab above.


Year at a glance

Fall Camp & Season

Fall camp begins in early August (see Calendar tab for dates).  CIF has mandatory practice requirements before a player can participate in a game.  Players not fulfilling these requirements will not be allowed to participate in games until they have completed these requirements.

 Winter

At the end of the season there is typically a year end banquet to honor the team.  Players who are not graduating will remain in 6th period football and begin off-season workouts.  Some athletes will move to other sports, please check with the coaches to ascertain which sports will require a departure from the 6th period football class and which will train with the football team.

Spring Practice

Spring practice is typically three weeks long and concludes with a Spring Game, which is non-padded.  Players are expected to wear the official spirit wear chosen for the season.

Summer Football

Los Alamitos Football players are highly encouraged to participate in the summer football program.  Registration for summer camp is currently live on the home page of our website.
