How long is the flag football season?
The regular season is 7 weeks long. For the teams that qualify (top 4), the playoff and championship games will be held the week after the regular season ends. Our all-star game is also held this day, starting after the championship game has ended.
Do I have to pay in order to join the league?
Yes you do. Our free agent fee is $75, and our team fee is $600. This fee includes play in all of our regular season games, plus our playoff, championship, and all-star games (if you or your team quality). It also includes your team shirt with personalized number on the back. We also provide stat tracking for all players, which will be posted on our website and updated weekly. We use these stats to determine who will be on the roster for our all-star game at the end of the season. There will also be video highlights of all games played, available for viewing on our website and Facebook page.
How will I know that my payment has gone through?
You will receive a confirmation e-mail from us after you have completed the registration process. If you don’t receive this email within 24 hours, please e-mail us at info@RightMindPlay.org
When will I receive my shirt?
Good question! You will receive your shirt on the first day of the season, at your first game. This shirt is important because it is the easiest way for others to determine which team you’re on, based on the color of the shirt. It’s also the only way we will be able to keep track of your stats, since each player on a team will have their own personal number on the back of their shirt.
What’s the difference between signing up as a free agent or a team?
This is a very common question. Signing up as a free agent means that you are only signing up for yourself. You do not yet have a team, but you are ready to be picked up by one. This basically secures you a spot on a team for the season, but you just won’t know which team right away. Towards the start of the season, you will be assigned to a team by the league commissioner.
Signing up as a team simply means that you have a group of people already that you want to play on a team with. In the case of our flag football league, a team must have at least 7 people, and a maximum of 14 people. It is always good to have more than the minimum on a team for many reasons. One reason is that the more people you sign up on your team, the lower everyone’s player fee will be. Another reason is that the more people you have, the better chance everyone will have to take water breaks during game play. Everyone plays hard, and sometimes taking a personal time out to catch your breath may be the difference between a win or a loss!
When are team practices?
This is a question we can’t exactly answer. We here at Right Mind Play encourage teams to practice as often as they can before a game, but we do not facilitate any practices. It is up to the team captain to schedule any team activity outside of our scheduled games.
