I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PLAY FLAG FOOTBALL, CAN I STILL JOIN?
Yes. Don’t worry, we’ll teach you how to play. Most of our rookies have never played organized football of any kind.
I DON’T THINK I’M ATHLETIC ENOUGH TO PLAY FOOTBALL.
We have players of all athletic types, ages and sizes. The great thing about football is there are a lot of roles, and we will find one for you.
AM I GOING TO GET TACKLED?
Tackling is illegal. In flag football you remove a player’s flag to end a play. There will be some incidental physical contact during the games from all the fun you are having, but nothing like what you see in the NFL and CFL.
WHAT IS THE COST?
Registration cost for the season is $100. Registration as a sub is $30.
That said, we want folks to come out and play, and believe team sports should be accessible to all, so we offer registration cost on a sliding scale. Have any questions? Reach out to us at email@example.com.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE SEASON?
9 regular season games, 2 playoff games, league socials,
I DON’T THINK I CAN AFFORD THE REGISTRATION COST.
We want to make sure that everyone who wants to play is able to play, and we would like to help you in whatever way we can. We offer registration on a sliding scale. This allows folks to decide what they can pay based on their income and resources available, without having to reach out to the executive committee to access subsidy. Sliding scale amounts can be selected during the registration process. Check out our Subsidized Registration page for more details.
I DON’T HAVE A CREDIT CARD OR AM UNABLE TO MAKE ONLINE PAYMENTS.
Not a problem. As mentioned above, we don’t want to create any barriers. Please contact us to arrange an alternative method of payment.
WHEN DO YOU PLAY?
We play on Saturday afternoons (your weekly game lasts about 1.5hrs) from May 27 to September 16.
We don’t play long weekends or pride weekend.
WHERE DO YOU PLAY?
We play at Felstead Avenue Playground, which is conveniently located close to Greenwood Subway Station.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
A pair of football cleats, pocket-less shorts/pants, and a positive attitude. Some players use football gloves and you may want to get yourself a mouthguard. We’ll provide all the other equipment.
I DON’T WANT TO GIVE UP ALL MY SUMMER WEEKENDS.
The league has designated byes for all long weekends and pride so you can still take a trip to the cabin or go camping and not miss a game. If you want to take another weekend off: no pressure, your captain will find a replacement for that week.
You can also sign up as a substitute player – you won’t have a designated
I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH FRIENDS TO MAKE A TEAM, CAN I STILL JOIN.
Perfect, you’ll make tons of new friends in FOG. All players are added to the player pool at the start of the season and new teams are put together by the executive committee to ensure balance.
I WANT TO BE ON THE SAME TEAM AS MY PARTNER, SIBLING, OR BEST FRIEND.
Let us know in the registration form! Most requests are accommodated as long as it doesn’t interfere with the balance of the teams.
