Attendance is strongly encouraged but not required. Those coaches who cannot attend will have their roster auto-drafted based on the player evaluations and next available player.
Rulebooks will be available for download after you have completed your registration. Parents: please read the rulebook since there are variations from what you're accustomed to seeing in tackle football.
All players will receive a flag football jersey to keep!
All players will be issued a South Charlotte Patriots helmet. This is for added protection as well as to give all flag football players the experience of competing on the field while wearing a helmet.
Fees & Deposits:
Registration: $145 per player
Any unpaid registrations will be deleted after 48 hours and you must re-register before the close date.
Parents must submit a deposit check for $150 to receive a helmet. The check will not be deposited into our bank account; therefore, we will return or destroy checks upon receipt of the helmet at the conclusion of the season.
This is SCRA's inaugural flag football season; therefore, WE ARE IN NEED OF COACHES FOR ALL TEAMS. If you are interested, then please contact Jim Newman via email ().
Each team may have up to two assistant coaches.
First practice & game will be scheduled for Sunday, May 24, 2020.
All practices will be held one hour before your scheduled game time.
The regular-season schedule will be six games. Last game is June 28, 2020.
The post-season schedule will be several rounds depending on number of teams. This will be held over the course of two weekends following the end of the regular-season, culminating with the Championship game for each division on Sunday July 12th.
Only those teams competing for the Championship will receive a trophy.
All players must purchase their own chinstrap and mouthpiece. Any player missing a chinstrap or mouthpiece cannot participate in any practices and games. Both should be connected to the player's helmet at all times to avoid loss.
The mouthpiece must connect to the helmet's facemask.
For those players who will be transitioning into tackle football following the flag football season must purchase a hardened shell chin strap. All others may opt for a softshell chin strap.
Cleats are not required but recommended. Metal cleats are prohibited.
