One problem that we believe negatively impacts the success of minor league football is organization don't fulfill their commitment to players and players don’t fulfill their commitment to their organizations; this hurt’s the image and integrity of teams and the league as a whole.  There are only two requirements that you must fulfill if you want to be apart of the Steelers Organization.  First, you must pay your team dues.  Many players are under the impression that Minor league teams are making an excess of profits but the reality is many teams operate at a loss and find other means of financing their teams to prevent them from going under.  Your dues are solely used for the purpose of paying for uniforms, league dues, fields and refs.  The way our organization generates profits is through fundraising and donations.  Secondly, you are also expected to attend practices and film sessions, which combine for two nights a week (Tuesday and Thursday) however, we do understand that most players have family and jobs and we are willing to work around personal conflicts as long as a player has a legitimate reason for missing one or the other.  In return, the Steelers organization will provide you with playing time during games, a reference to advance your career and access to our contacts.  If you cannot live up to these expectations you will not be allowed to compete during games.  We believe that if players are permitted to compete during games that have not fulfilled their obligations to the team it will have a negative impact on the team and will hurt the integrity of the organization.  If you are interested in becoming a Virginia Steeler click on the player interest form, fill it out and e-mail it to registrar@virginiasteelers.com.  If you do not have the ability to e-mail the form print it, fill it out and bring it to the player interest meeting; for the time being please send an e-mail with your contact information so that you can be placed on the e-mail distribution to receive important communications.
