When does the season start?

Spring Season runs from February 21st - May 15th.


I have a football player and I would like to have his/her sister cheer for him/her. Is that possible?

The cheerleaders practice from 4 p.m.- 5 p.m. on Thursdays at Magnolia Elementary in the Auditorium. They cheer on Fridays at pre-determined fields. As the program grows, we hope to be able to accommodate more parents with sibling’s interests in FNL, be it football or cheer.


Where are the games?

Games are at 3 to 4 different locations in Carlsbad. Traditionally, FNL has used Poinsettia Park, Alga Norte Community Park and other schools/parks in Carlsbad.  


Where and what time will practice be? 

Practices are completely up to your coach. However, each team practices once per week, for about an hour. Most practices will be around 4:00 or 5:00 pm.  Most coaches and teams do not have access to fields with lights.


When are the games?

Games are generally on Friday nights. The younger divisions play earlier. For example, most Kindergarten and 1st/2nd grade games are at 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. There could be a few Thursday games, as well.  5th/6th and 7th/8th grade division games usually start around 7:30 or 8:30 p.m. 


What equipment do I need? 

Cleats, mouth guard, solid colored shorts (same as the rest of the team) with no pockets or stripes/designs.

Can I request a friend? 

You may request as many friends as you would like, however, friend requests are not guaranteed. 



Can I request a coach?  

No, but you can request players. 


How much does it cost? 

$235 to register. Optional shorts cost $20 (Coaches order those)  


Is the uniform provided?

Once the $275 team sponsor fee is turned in to the league, your team will receive its jerseys. FNL shorts are optional, and your coach can order those. 


Is there playoffs? 

Kindergarten does not have playoffs. All other divisions (1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th and 7th/8th grade divisions) have a single elimination playoff tournament after the regular season. 


What is the sponsor fee? 

The sponsorship fee is a way for us to keep your registration fee as low as possible. It is an opportunity for locals business to partner with FNL, a non profit. The sponsor fee is $275 per team. If the team is unable to find a local business or individual willing to sponsor the team, the $275 is divided by the number of players. If you have more questions feel free to contact Coach Pub


When will I hear from my coach?

Coaches will get their rosters in early February  and will begin contacting players soon thereafter. If you haven’t heard from your coach by Feb 14, 2019 please email


How do I sign up?

You can sign up by going to and clicking on the registration tab. 


Is it too late to get a refund?

$200 refunds are available until the season kicks off. After that then no refunds are being issued.


Does every division get a participation trophy?

Kindergarten and 1st/2nd division players ALL receive trophies. 3rd/4th, 5th/6th and 7th/8th division players only receive trophies if they earn 1st or 2nd place in their conference. 


Can my child play if he gets injured and is wearing a cast?



Are Dogs allowed on the fields at the games?

For the safety of others, DOGS ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED.


How are sponsors recognized if they are not on the back of the jerseys?

Sponsors are recognized on our website and we put out an all-league email listing all sponsors and asking for league members to patron them.  They also receive a plaque at the end of the season.
