LEAGUE START DETAILS - SATURDAY FOOTBALL (SAFETY HARBOR)

Please read ALL THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding your child's upcoming flag football league. You will receive an email with specifics regarding your child's team placement, coach, and roster.

WHO:

Your ONLINE PERSONAL FAMILY ACCOUNT will allow you to see your child's team assignment, team schedule, and their team roster. Through this you can message the team to set up meeting times, important announcements, notices about attendance, and snack rotations. You can also edit your information, see any coach assignments, and more...it's a powerful tool! Need a video tutorial? HERE YOU GO HERE!

This league is fun for the entire family! We encourage families to stay and cheer on their kids. Coaches and staff are not responsible for supervision.

WHERE:

Games will be played at the Safety Harbor Middle School in Safety Harbor. 

There is limited parking south of the field on the grass as street parking is not permitted. Please see the FIELD MAP (LINKS HERE) to ensure that you park in the designated areas only. You may find additional parking in the school lot north of the field. Our command center will be located South of the playing fields near the track. We will have an on-site coordinator, should you have any questions or problems while you are there.

WHEN:

The schedule and field layout can be FOUND HERE. Depending on the age group, game times may vary from week to week so make sure to check the schedule before heading to the field.

We will have practice areas available an hour before games should your team want to get together to practice.

 

Please try to arrive at least 30-45 minutes early the first game to make sure you find parking, get your jersey from your coach, meet your team, and practice before your first game.

WHAT:

Your child will need non-metal cleats (or tennis shoes). Players in the 6-13 year old divisions will be required to wear a mouthpiece (available online or at most sporting good stores). Uniforms have been ordered and will be available through your coach at the first game.  The uniforms will consist of shirt, shorts (without pockets), and a flag. Should your child wear their own shorts make sure they do not have pockets - for the safety of opposing fingers. Extra flag belts should yours be lost can be purchased.

We are accepting gently used cleats at the field for the recycle bin. Feel free to bring those cleats that your child has outgrown and/or peruse the bin for cleats that will fit your child. Kids feet grow so fast that it is hard to keep up!

Items to bring with you each week: water to keep the kids and yourself hydrated, chair or blanket to sit comfortably and cheer on your team (please be at least 3 FEET OFF THE SIDELINE), layers in case of chilly mornings and/or bug spray. 

WEATHER INFO:

Should we experience adverse weather, you can check the status of games at our rainout line at 813-602-0066.

The most important rule to remember is that we are out there for the kids to have FUN! As it’s for fun, the score is not officially kept by the referees. Please be an example of sportmanship and good character for your children and all players.
