Who can play?  This program is open to boys and girls, 4 years of age (as of the Deadline Date) - 14 years of age.  You do not need to live in the community where the field is located to participate at that particular field.

What are the age divisions?

We have four divisions: 4-6 (Developmental Division), 6-8, 9-11 and 12-14.  A child’s age group will be determined by his or her age on January 1 of that season year.

How much does it cost to play?  A season registration costs between $120 and $130 depending on the location.

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

How will I be placed on to a team? Players are evaluated through participation in drills involving running, passing, and catching. Their performance is recorded and this information is used to try and balance out team rosters as best as we can.  We also use this time to verify registration and collect a copy of players' (esp. first year players) birth certificates.

What if my son/daughter is unable to attend preseason player evaluations?  Preseason player evaluations are used in an effort to better balance team rosters.  Generally we offer two evaluation dates for scheduling convenience and we ask that you make your best effort to attend one of these sessions.  If you you’re unable to attend either sessions your son/daughter will still be places on a team. 

How will I know what team I’m placed on?  You will be contacted directly by that team’s Head Coach within two weeks from the date teams are formed.  If you do not hear from anyone associated with the NLPAFFL a few weeks after the selections has taken place, please contact the league office.

What is included with my registration?  The registration fee includes an official NFL Flag reversible team jersey with mataching shorts (yours to keep), an official NFL Flag belt and flags, members will also receive Subway coupons, and an 7 week season of fun and game play. Plus, as member of an NFL League, each player receives NFL Flag Player Insurance Coverage and a free USA Football Player/Parent membership.

Are there any other items I need to purchase? All players are required to have a pair of cleats and a mouth guard. You can purchase them at any local sporting goods store.

Can I sponsor a team or make a donation to the league?  Yes, and we are most grateful to our local business partners.  Please contact League President Rapheal Dowdye at [email protected]

The registration deadline has passed can I still register?  Once the registration deadline passes we cannot guarantee any spots however if there are spots available after the deadline our system will allow you to register with a $15 late fee.  

When will the season begin?
  Spring season will begin something around early to mid April of 2023. 
What do I do if I or my family member wants to coach our child?  During the registration process you will be asked if anyone in your family would be interested in coaching.  At this time you will be able to select them to be either a head or assistant coach.  No coaching experiences don’t worry! We provide a comprehensive coaches training and meeting along with a variety of coaching resources to ensure they are prepared!  

When do the team’s practice?
 All teams practice 30-45 minutes before their game each week making this a convenient program for busy families. 

What days are games offered?
  All of our locations offer games on Sundays.
