How many games a week will my child be playing? (Spring League ONLY)
Every team will play one game a week on Saturday or Sunday. The first games will always start at 9:00am with the second game following at the same location until all groups have played. We start with the 6/7 division, 8/9 division, then 10/11 division, 12/13 division, 14/15 division and end the day with the senior division (if applicable).  Saturdays will be our preferable game day, but Sundays may be required due to scheduling conflicts at Elks Field.

Where will the games be played?
We will be playing our Spring games at Elks Field.
 
Can my child play up an age group or down an age group?
The league only allows you to play up an age group (extenuating circumstance), special consideration may be made for a smaller, inexperienced child to play down an age group.  Division is determined by the child's age as of December 31, 2020.

How many times will my child practice a week? (Spring League ONLY)
Practice times and frequency are determined by the coach. Some teams will practice once or twice a week. This is completely up to the coach of your child's team, and is not controlled by the league.  Please respect the coaches wishes in regards to practice.

Where will we practice?
The league has booked Elks Field and Regal Field for practices, Monday - Thursday, 6-8pm.  Coaches can also practice on Prairie South School Division fields, but should contact the school principal for permission prior to practicing.  

Do I need to be certified to coach?
You must be certified in Respect in Sport, which is a 2 hour online course https://sasksrc.respectgroupinc.com/secure/. If you have already completed this course with another sport you must log in and add Football as a sport to your file.
You do need to attend a coaches meeting that will be held  at the Yara Centre in April 2019 with date and time TBD. This meeting is MANDATORY.  All Head Coaches will be reimbursed the equivalent of one player registration fee at the end of the season.
   
Can I put in a request to play with certain players?
You may put a request for a certain player in the comments section when registering online, but there are no guarantees. 

What do I need for my child to play flag?
Your child will need to wear solid coloured shorts with NO stripes or pockets, and cleats for footwear(metal cleats are not allowed). Mouth guards are mandatory.  All other equipment will be provided.

If my child doesn't like flag, can I get a refund?

After the start of the season on April 20, 2020 until May 1, 2020 fees will be returned less a $80 administration fee. There will be no refunds issued after May 1, 2020.
