Q: Who Can Play?
A: This program is open to Boys and Girls, 4 years of age (as of the registration deadline date) - 8th grade.  Participants from any city can register for any of our programs.  

Q: How are Individual Players Placed on Teams?
A: This is a league designed to keep schoolmates playing together.  We do allow for special requests such as if there is a coach your child has played for that would like to play for them again or to keep friends together.  However, special requests are NOT GUARANTEED  and NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN IF WE CANNOT MEET THE REQUEST.   Also, please keep in mind that to keep balance in our teams, requests may not be accommodated if the team is heavy on a grade level. 

After requests are processed, individuals are placed on teams determined by school, grade and age factors.  Our goal is for each elementary and middle school to have their own flag football teams.  Teams are formed using the following criteria:

1. School affiliation
2. Current Grade/Age

Most teams will have 8-10 players.  If there are more than 12 players registered in the same grade/age division at the same school, those players will be divided into multiple "School" teams and then the remaining spots could be filled with players from other schools.  

Q: If my child and his/her classmates do not have enough players to form a team? 
A: No worries! We will always try to keep classmates together but if needed we will combine players from other schools to form your team for the season.  

Q: Do We Accept Team Registrations?
A: No, we try to keep teams as even as possible.  While we will allow for teams to return, we will carefully examine full teams registering so it is a fun experience for all.  This ensures parity within the league and prevents stacking.  

Q: How many teams can one school have?
A: It depends.  We will not turn any players away.  As many teams that can be formed from each school by grade/age division will be accepted. Everyone who wants to play is welcome.  

Q: How many players are on a team?
A: Most teams have 8-10 players.  However, we do reserve the right to stretch these guidelines if the league deems necessary.  

Q: Does the league supply uniforms?
A: Every Flag Football player in our program receives an NFL reversible team jersey and a flag belt to keep with your registration.  

Q: Who are the Officials and are they Qualified?
A: Our officials are trained and certified by our staff so they have a full understanding of our rules.  They are very good at what they do and will call a fair game for both sides.  

Q: How much playing time can my child expect?
A: All of our programs promote participation, fun, and fundamentals. Coaches are required to fairly allocate playing time equally among all players on the team. We will do our best to assure all players receive equal playing time.

Q: What do I get for my Registration Fee?
A: A six-game season including practices, use of well groomed fields, certified officials, NFL reversible team jersey, flag belt and flags, interactive website, organized administration, and a lot of FUN for you and your child!
