Q: My child has never played football before, is this league for him/ her?
A: Absolutely. We encourage all first timers to come out and play with us as this is a developmental league that teaches according to player experience and knowledge.
Q: What happens in case of rain?
A: If it rains during gameplay, as long as it is light rain and no lightening, we will continue to play. If there is lightening, we will assess weather forecasts and either delay the game or cancel according to the forecasts.
Q: How is information communicated?
A: We use email for all communications. For immediate communications (game cancellations, last minute changes, etc.), we use Facebook via a group called ‘Legends Flag Football Academy’.
Q: Can I request that two players play on the same team?
A: Yes. Many siblings and friends sign up and request to play together. However, we try to not allow groups large enough to make an entire team play together so that we maintain the competitive balance of the league.
Q: Are there awards given out at the end of the season?
A: Yes. However, only the 1st and 2nd place teams along with a few standout individuals receive awards. Here at Legends, we believe that it is imperative to learn how to win and lose respectfully. We want to teach that nothing in life is handed to you and that you must work hard to achieve your goals.
