Where and what time will practice be?

Practice times and locations are up to each coach. We do the best we can to match you up with a team in your area/ school but can not guarantee it.

What equipment do I need?

Cleats (NO METAL CLEATS), mouth guard, solid colored shorts (same as the rest of the team) with no pockets. 

How can I volunteer to coach?

Send an email to christina4fnl@gmail.com and cc nccfnl@gmail.com with the subject “Fall League Head Coach.” Indicate what grade your player is in when you volunteer. Also include your cell phone, zip code, your player’s grade and what school your player attends. You can also request to be a Head Coach during the online registration. 

How many players per team?

Nine players per team minimum. Coach can choose to carry 10 players on the roster, but it is highly discouraged. 

Can my child play on multiple teams?

No. Each player is allowed to only play on one team. Since every season there is a waitlist, we want to allow for as many kids as possible to play.

 

Can I request a friend? 

We try our best to honor requests, however, this is not a guarantee that this request can be granted. Groups of 3 or more friends will not be placed on the same team unless a parent is willing to be the head coach. 

How much does it cost?

 $325. Includes jersey, flags, shorts, picture day which includes a voucher good towards your player's pictures.  

How much and what is the sponsorship fee?

Each team is responsible for finding a local business to sponsor their team for $375. This gives our local businesses a chance to contribute to the community while getting a tax deduction. The business gets a plaque with a picture of the team and the business name is featured on the website. f the team does not find a sponsorship, each team is responsible for splitting the cost by total players.  

Can I get a refund?

Refunds of $200 are available until August 1st. After this point no refunds will be issued.

Is the uniform provided?

Jerseys and shorts are included. 

Does FNL have extra jerseys on hand?

Unfortunately we do not have extra jerseys on hand. They will need to be ordered separately.

Are 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.  

Please note that we can not accommodate scheduling requests for playoffs (other than coaches with two teams) and most teams will play at least two games a week. 

When will I hear from my coach?

Coaches will get their rosters late July/early August. Coaches will begin contacting players soon thereafter. If you haven’t heard from your coach by July 25th, 2024, please email christina4fnl@gmail.com and cc nccfnl@gmail.com

How do I sign up?

You can always find open registration links on our homepage.

Kindergarten and 1st/2nd division players ALL receive medals. 3rd/4th, 5th/6th and 7th/8th division players only receive trophies if they earn 1st or 2nd place medals. Playoffs the champions receive rings and runners-up receive medals.
