Q: What do the various events listed on the season schedule entail?
Pub Crawl - Open to the first 80 people to show up - Specific details and route to follow shortly
Rookie Camps - Designed for newcomers to learn the game of football, learn football techniques and ask questions in a controlled, non-intimidating environment. Only new players are allowed to attend these camps. We will explain the game, answer questions, teach skills and run through some skill stations so you can practice what you've just learned. The camps are run be veteran league members that are skilled at teaching and encouraging new potential members. There is no obligation to participate in the camps -- if you like what you see and determine the game is for you, then attend the clinics that follow in the following weeks. Athletic cleats (specifically football or soccer) are strongly suggested.
Clinics - These are not tryouts, as everyone that wants to participate and pays their league fee will be drafted to a team. The clinics are, however, a chance for team captains to evaluate your abilities as you participate in the skill stations so they can develop their player draft order. The various stations include: Catching, running, footwork, route running, flag pulling, etc..
Draft and Draft Party - At the conclusion of clinic #2 our team captains will go into a private setting and draft their teams from all the players that are available. To be eligible to be drafted you must have participated in a least one of the two clinics (preferrably both) and have payed your league fee. Once the draft is complete, the league will conduct a draft party where all the teams are announced and you will have your first chance to meet your new teammates. Jersey colors and team sponsors are also selected at this event.
Team Practices - Once you have been selected to a team, your team will begin three weeks of practices to prepare for the season. Your team captain will manage your team's practice schedule.
Start of the season - All team play occurs on Saturdays. There are three game start times - 9AM, 10:30AM and 12PM. The noon games usually finish by 2PM. A finalized schedule will be generated once teams are selected.
Miscellaneous - Your league fee is $100. This fee pays for your team jersey (yours to keep), a league t-shirt, referee fees, field fees, field painting services, insurance, etc.
