Frequently Asked Questions

 

 
Can I request that my child play on a certain team?
No.
Players are evaluated by the coaches & club, and teams are assembled for the safety of the children, and in order to form teams to compete at the appropriate levels in the league. Parents do not participate in this process. We do our best to make everyone happy but Coach or Team requests are not guaranteed. Your child will be placed on a team best suited for them and in respect to our mission statement.
I don’t like the Team. Can I play for a PAL team in a neighboring town?
No. A player may not play in another town.

Is football safe?

Our club practices “heads-up” tackling and other safety protocols. Generally speaking the risk of injury in football is less than in other sports.
Are the Coaches Certified?
We have wonderful coaches. All of our coaches are required to be certified by USA Football. They participate in a number of clinics prior to the season that reinforce both safety, and fundamentally sound instruction. We are also fortunate to have a number of former NFL and NCAA players involved throughout the season.
