Welcome to 2019 Fall Registration

UPDATED HELMET POLICY FOR NFL FLAG INLAND VALLEY

 

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY! 

We are excited to announce that NFL Flag Inland Valley is switching to GameBreaker helmets, beginning with the Fall 2019 season.  We are making this change to take advantage of GameBreaker’s superior technology and safety features for our players.  

ALL PURCHASE OR RENTAL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED BY SUNDAY, AUGUST 25TH.

ROCKSOLID HELMET TRADE-IN EVENTS:

We believe GameBreaker helmets will provide the most comprehensive and effective safety technology for our players. But we also know that many of you already own soft-shelled helmets and we are working to make this transition as smooth as possible with several different options:

THREE OPTIONS

  1. Rent a GameBreaker Helmet for $20 from NFL Flag San Diego
  2. Purchase a Black GameBreaker Helmet for $59.99 and receive a Shock Dr. Mouthguard at no additional cost (this offer is only for the FALL Season)
  3. Trade in your RockSolid helmet (ON SELECT DAYS ONLY TBA) and purchase a GameBreaker Helmet for only $25 and receive a Shock Dr. Mouthguard at no additional cost 

GameBreaker Helmet Policy

  4. NO sharp or hard edges, and/or anything that could cause harm to the player wearing headgear or any other player.
  5. A non-metallic fully functioning retention system (Chin Strap).

We believe GameBreaker helmets will provide the most comprehensive and effective safety technology for our players. But we also know that many of you already own soft-shelled helmets and we are working to make this transition as smooth as possible with several different options:

  1. If you already own a soft-shell helmet, you will be able to trade it in for a new GameBreaker helmet for $25.00 (new GameBreaker helmets are $59.99); you will receive a new helmet PLUS a customized mouthguard (a $30 value). THIS WILL ONLY APPLY ON SPECIFIC TRADE-IN DAYS (DATES TBA)
  2. Rental helmets are available at $20 for the season through NFL Flag Inland Valley.
  3. You will be able to purchase a new GameBreaker helmet directly from GameBreaker for $59.99. 

ALL PURCHASE OR RENTAL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED BY SUNDAY, AUGUST 25TH. THE EXCEPTION TO THIS IS IF YOU ARE TRADING IN YOUR ROCKSOLID HELMET THE WEEK OF AUGUST 26TH (DATES TBA).

Recreational vs. Gold/Competitive

Our goal for NFL Flag Inland Valley is to provide every child with an equal opportunity to play flag football. We believe our new structure will give the kids the opportunity to learn and play multiple positions on both offense and defense. Our main focus is making sure everyone is having FUN while learning the basics of the game, teamwork and important lessons in sportsmanship. We have improved the quality and value of our program to provide our players with the best experience possible.

Below are some of our new policies: 

  • You will be asked to choose Gold/Competitive or Recreational
  • All Teams (competitive and recreational) will be formulated based on an GRADE Requirement and not an AGE Requirement
  • Both Competitive and Recreational will play 6v6
  • The GOLD/COMPETITIVE Divisions will have NO Substitution Rules
  • GOLD/COMPETITIVE must be willing to travel for at least ONE game during the season. 
  • The RECREATIONAL Division will have equal playing rules with substitutions.
  • We will schedule the first FOUR Weeks of the season, evaluate and then schedule the balance of the games so the games are adjusted for competitiveness
  • For the playoffs, we will have the Gold/Competitive Level as well as the Silver, Wildcard and possibly Bronze levels for the recreational teams. 

During online registration parents will have to answer a required question to Rate Your Player. The choices will be Very Good, Good, Some Experience, or No Experience. While formulating teams in the recreation division we will use this as a baseline to spread out the talent based on what the parent choose. As a example while formulating teams we will take 2 from each category. During week 4 of the Spring season we will evaluate teams in recreation division and if a team has a competitive advantage of any sort that team or teams will be moved into the competitive division. Friend request are still welcomed. 

Recreational 

Players, coaches or teams who play to have FUN. Your child will learn the basic fundamentals of passing /catching and is designed to help develop an understanding of rules, teamwork, fundamentals and sportsmanship. This is a great way for our players to learn the basics of the game, and develop the skills and techniques necessary to succeed on both offense and defense. The slate of practices and games ensures that all participants receive comprehensive instruction and gain a keen understanding of the sport.

 

Recreation Format

NFL Flag Rec league will feature Grades Pre- Kindergarten through 8th grade division offered. This will be a 6 on 6 flag football league with all kids playing a total 3 out of 4 quarters. Each team roster will be set at 8 kids with a possible bonus player at 9 if needed. Rosters will no longer exceed 9 players. All kids will sit out a full quarter enforced and tracked by the referees. We feel this is a great opportunity for the kids to develop and avoid playing stacked or extremely experienced teams.

Competitive 

Players, coaches and teams who play to win, and have a skill level to reflect that. Our new Competitive League format is a natural fit for young players who have developed into all-stars on their respective recreational teams. These players will develop a greater love for the game and improve their individual skill set at a much quicker pace by playing with and against other highly skilled players and teams.Players and coaches may enter individually or as entire teams. All pop warner/AYF teams will be placed in this division. We encourage kids who want to play together to enter as a team and prepare for the NFL Flag Regional/National Tournaments.

Competitive Format

NFL Flag Competitive league teams will be separated by age groups. This will be a 5 on 5 league using NFL Flag National Tournament Rules. Age groups offered in this division will be 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U. Birth date cutoff will be August 1, 2019. For example if you have a child that turned 9 on August 2, 2019, they would be eligible to play 8U. Rosters for competitive will be a max of 10 per national rules. It is suggested that all children should receive equal playing time for both offense and defense in each game they participate in. However, it is up to each coach to manage the game as they see fit.
