Q. Why play flag football instead of tackle football?

A:Football is one of the most exciting and popular sports for kids. But whether it's because of limited size or ability, or the desire to keep from getting hurt, not all kids want to play tackle football and many parents are concerned about the violent nature of the game. Flag football has proven to be a much safer sport for kids that still includes the high action appeal of football with far less of the common injuries associated with tackle football: concussions, broken bones, sprains, and dislocations.

Q. My child has an older sibling, older friend or is nearly old enough to qualify for the next Age Divsion and wants to "Play Up" into the next age group- is that possible?

A.Yes. Playing up into the next age division is allowed. Since the registration system automatically places players into Divisions based on their grade, simply add a note in the "Special Requests" field on the registration form to let us know that you would like your child to play up into the next Division and we will make the change. Alternately, you may email
us your request. We do not, however, allow "playing down" into a younger Age Division, to be fair to the younger kids.

Q.How are the teams picked?

A. Efforts are made to accommodate sibling and buddy requests and in most cases are granted. An effort is also made to put
kids from the same school on the same team, while at the same time, keeping the
teams fair and equally balanced based on players experience, size and
athleticism.
