Pre-Season Tips and Reminders
Show up early and stretch out. No matter what kind of shape you
are in, flag football uses different muscles than you are probably
used to. You will be hurting on Sunday if you don't stretch out
really well. Especially in the legs and groin area. Start stretching
Show up early and learn more about the rules. We'll have updated
rules posted to our web site, www.flagflagfootball.com later this
week and will include them in a supplemental e-mail when they are
finalized. New or returning members alike, take a minute to review
the rules. We'll also have a brief review of the rules prior to
starting the game on Saturday.
Show up early and meet people. One of the best things about the
football league is the opportunity to meet new people. You can meet
the league officers ask questions and get introduced to some returning
Show up early so we can start right at 10:00. After 4 points of
suggesting that you show up early, take it to heart. New people
should plan to arrive by 9:15, returning players by 9:30. The games
start at 10:00. Don't be late.
Bring your completed membership form, league waiver and league dues
if you haven't already mailed them. We'll have extra forms to fill
out on site, but save time by filling yours out at home. If you
don't have the forms they can be downloaded at the website.
Bring water, a towel and proper attire. There is no water fountain
on site. If it is warm, you will be sweaty. Also, most people typically
wear some kind of shorts or workout pants and a T-shirt. We supply
colored mesh jerseys, which designate the different teams. Some
people wear rubber or plastic cleats, others wear sneakers, whatever
you are comfortable with. If you can run well in pumps, those are
fine, but metal cleats or spikes are NOT permitted.
We play rain or shine. Or snow. Or whatever.
We'll play two games each week. Players will be assigned to teams
by "counting off" and we'll try to ensure that there is
a good mix of returning and new players on each team. We'll use
this method for the September games. After the games on September
28, we'll have a draft and assign interested people, who have paid
the membership dues, to a specific team.
After the game some people traditionally go to Fritz for drinks.
Fritz has been quite generous supporting our league with cash donations
and allowing us access to thei rwater for car washes.
If you are new, please try to make at least one of our three weekends
of preseason games so you have an idea of what the league is about
before the draft on September 28. Or better yet, come all three
Bring a friend. There is always room for more people.
Have fun! We encourage a social and friendly environment and want
members to simply enjoy themselves.
