Parent Information


Hello DCL parents, we are excited for the upcoming football season, and welcome the opportunity to help mentor your student athlete through sports. My name is Natasha Rogers, I serve as the Parent Coordinator for DCL. My son and I have been a part of the DCL family for 4 years. In that time I have filled various roles, and I understand the importance of parent participation for any athlete to be successful. Parent participation helps an organization to thrive and builds confidence on and off the field.


All parents with an child participating in any DCL program will receive notifications via the band app. Team parents, coaches, and DCL board members will use the app to convey up-to-the-minute information regarding event information, schedule changes, transportation to and from the games, and needs for all athletes. Please remember to check the band app daily.


All athletes must be picked up from practice by 8:30 pm. DCL cannot allow minors to use a ride-share service or taxi alone after practice. Please ensure your child is picked up from practice on time daily. Please note DCL will allow a 5 minute grace period for pick up, for each minute after 8:35 pm there will be a $1 charge until 8:45 pm. At 8:45 pm, any child who has not been picked up from practice will be dropped off at the 12th precinct, located at 1441 W Seven Mile Rd, Detroit, MI 48203


All practices are held at Tindal Recreation Center located at:

10301 W Seven Mile Rd Detroit, MI 48221
