Flag and  Mitey Mite divisions are considered noncompetitive. However, the Flag and Mitey Mite teams conclude their season with "Bowl" game immediate after regular season, to give them a sense of post season play.

Weigh-ins for Tackle Football Participants
Each tackle football player will be weighed at check-in sessions and again at the beginning of the season to determine and confirm division assignment. 

Players must maintain the weight requirements throughout the season for their division. Players will be weighed prior to each game. The first week of the regular season, players must weigh within the published weight range. Each subsequent week, the allowed weight will be increased by one pound. Players are weighed in their uniforms, minus their helmet. The following amounts are added to the maximum weight each week for equipment weight allowances: Mitey Mite: 7 lbs, Junior Pee and Pee Wee: 8 lbs, Junior Midget and Midget: 9 lbs. 
 

Practices
The first day of practice will be August 1st. During the month of August, teams will practice Monday-Thursday from 6:00-8:00. & Saturday 10am-12pm After August, practices will go down to 2 hours, 3 days a week.

What to Wear 

Tackle football participants should wear shorts, t-shirts, helmets and cleats. Do not wear football equipment until told to by your coach. After completing 20 hours of conditioning, players will begin wearing practice uniforms and full pads. 

Every participant should bring a water bottle to every practice. 

Games
All regular-season games are scheduled to be played on Sundays starting around Labor Day weekend (All teams will play a game on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend). The regular season generally runs through October. Flag and Mitey Mite divisions usually concludes their season with an inter-league "bowl" game at the end of the season.

Teams in the Junior Pee Wee division and older are eligible to compete in post-season competition based on their win/loss record. Post-season competition may include regional and national championships and/or invitational bowls which can run through Thanksgiving or into December, if a team goes on to nationals in Orlando, FL in 
December
