Description:

This program allows players to play in a recreational atmosphere supervised by parent volunteers.  Teams practice during the week (Grades 1-6) and then play their league games on Sunday afternoons.  Players are assigned to a team randomly so no requests will be taken.  Coaches Meetings will be conducted after the deadline and will give the coaches sample lesson plans, game rules, and a sample playbook.  They will also receive a bag with footballs and flags for their practices.  The Director will contact the volunteer coaches that expressed they could help out during registration.  Coaches who are selected will be given a $10 credit towards their online account.
