Why can't I find a league near me?

As of Fall 2023 we have multiple locations throughout the metroplex and we are adding more every season! If you don’t see a league near you, send our local staff an email, and tell us where we should start a league! We may not be in your area just yet, but we are actively seeking new communities to open leagues in. We’d love to bring Gridiron Football to you! 

Do you offer early registration discounts?

Yes! The earlier you register for our program, the more you save! You do not need a promo code. You can find early and late registration deadlines for each season when you go to the individual registration page of that specific season.

I signed up for the wrong league/division. How can I switch?

Please contact a member of our team and we will be able to help you get your player placed into the right league or division. This is a simple fix on our end, so just let us know via email and we will quickly make the proper adjustments. DO NOT select the correct league/division on your account and place it in your cart after completing the incorrect registration. This only complicates the process on our end. Simply reach out to us, we will fix it, and you will receive a confirmation email when it goes through!

If I can't participate anymore, can I get a refund?

We are only able to offer refunds prior to the season due to other special circumstances. Please reach out to your local staff regarding your need for a refund at [email protected]. Typically, we will credit you for a future season if something comes up last minute.
Once uniforms are ordered NO more refunds will be offered.

Can my kids sign up for the same team?

Yes! When completing the registration process, there is an option to “request a buddy”. Here you will enter the name of your teammate request. You must type the buddy requests for each player, even if you are registering multiple players on the same transaction. I can guarantee you that if you utilize the "teammate request", we will have those players on the same team.

Are your football programs co-ed?

All of our programs are co-ed! We also are offering Girls only divisions! 

What's the difference between recreational and competitive flag?

Recreational Flag Football and Competitive Flag Football differ in several key aspects:

Skill Level: Recreational Flag Football is generally designed for players of all skill levels, including beginners and casual participants. It prioritizes fun, inclusivity, and a relaxed atmosphere. On the other hand, Competitive Flag Football is geared towards more experienced players who possess a higher level of skill and athleticism. It emphasizes intense competition and higher performance standards.

Focus on Winning: While winning is always a goal in both recreational and competitive settings, the emphasis may vary. In Recreational Flag Football, the focus is more on participation, enjoyment, and fostering a sense of community. Winning is not the sole objective, and the emphasis is on fair play and sportsmanship. In Competitive Flag Football, winning becomes a primary focus, and teams strive to outperform their opponents with a more intense drive to achieve victory.

Team Composition: In Recreational Flag Football, teams may be composed of players with diverse backgrounds and skill levels, often allowing friends and family members to play together. Competitive Flag Football typically involves more structured team compositions.

Game time differences: In Recreational Flag Football there is only going to be one referee per field. The referees will explain penalties more in depth and may not call all penalties as they happen. For example they may warn a team about a penalty before calling it next time. It is a learning experience for both players and coaches. In Competitive Flag Football there will be a minimum of 2 referees per game. The referees will call penalties as they see them .

Both Recreational and Competitive Flag Football offer their own unique experiences, catering to different player preferences and skill levels. It's important to choose the type of league or game that aligns with your goals, whether it's for fun and socializing or seeking a higher level of competition.

Starting Spring 2024 we will offer an ELITE COMPETITIVE DIVISION. The elite competitive division  represents the pinnacle of skill and competition. Teams and players showcase exceptional athleticism, strategic prowess, and a deep understanding of the game. With intense gameplay, fast-paced action, and high-level skills, this division features seasoned athletes excelling in Flag Football. Winning becomes the primary focus, with a drive to outperform all opponents. WE WILL NOT BE PLACING ANY FREE AGENTS IN THIS DIVISION! ALL TEAMS MUST COME FORMED ALREADY! Minimum of two referees per game, penalties are called as seen.


How to register a team? 

If you're on the main website and you click a program description for the division you want to sign up for, it asks if you're signing up a player or signing up yourself to coach. Select volunteer and it opens the registration form where you fill out your info. Then it asks for a team name, practice info, and team color choices. Click submit and it shows you the team code.

If you're logged into the website already, go to your account page, click on the volunteer tab, and look at the different league options to select your league and create the team.

Once you've created the team, you can visit your team page by going to your account page on the website, click on the volunteer tab, and click on your team name which is hyperlinked. This takes you to the team page where you can view your roster and everything else. If you go on the roster tab there you will see "manage roster invites" this is where you can plug in parent emails and send out the code directly to them. 

Do I need a copy of my child's report cards to play?

Yes, you will need to provide a copy of your child's latest report card or school registration to play. You can upload this to your account on the website prior to the season starting. This ensures that we have fairness across the board, and hold each team accountable to our age cut off. 

Having trouble uploading? Please do not send your birth certificates to your local staff. First of all, be sure to complete this process on a computer. The mobile version of the website is not as easy to upload documents on. If you absolutely cannot get it uploaded on a computer, reach out to [email protected] for assistance.

How do I know what grade group my child should play in?

Co-ed Grade based groups are broken up into Pre-K, Kindergarten-1st Grade, 2nd-3rd Grade, 4th-5th Grade, 6th-7th Grade, 8th-9th Grade and our High School divisions. , with grade being for the 23-24 school year. 

Girls only Grade based groups are broken up into Kindergarten-2nd Grade, 3rd-5th Grade, Middle School, and our High School divisions. , with grade being for the 23-24 school year. 

For example, to be eligible for the Kindergarten-1st grade Co-ed group, your player must be in either kindergarten or 1st grade during the 23-24 season.

Players can play up in age groups, but will not be allowed to play down an age division. So a 3rd grader can play in the 4th-5th grade division but a 4th grader CAN NOT play in the 2nd- 3rd division 

  How can I become a coach?
