LPYFC Flag Football FAQ

(Updated 02/15/21)

 

Q:  Will there be flag football in Lynnfield during the spring of 2021?

A:  Yes!!!  Head on over to https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/257597 to register before April 15th.

 

Q:   How much does it cost?

A:    The cost is $120.00 per player with a multi-family discount of 10% applied at registration.

 

Q:  My child is interested in playing, but I am also willing to help out and coach.  Where do I sign up for that?

A:  When registering your child to play, there is information to fill out on the bottom of the registration form for those who would like to volunteer to coach.  All volunteers will need to have a CORI check completed prior to being able to help.

 

Q:  When will games be played?

A:  Games will be played on Saturday afternoons.  Game times will vary by age, but all games will take place from 12:00pm – 6:00 pm.

 

Q:  What will the duration of the season be?

A:  The Spring 2021 season is slated to begin on May 1 and conclude on June 19th.

 

Q:  Will practice be required?

A:  Practice will not be required, but some coaches may elect to try and get the teams together once in a while outside of game day.  Each team will be given time before each game to warm up.

 

Q:  What ages are eligible?

A:  Those in grades K-5 are eligible.  There will be three divisions, which will be created by grade level: K-1, 2-3, and 4-5.

 

Q:  I am registering my child and don’t see a box for a friend request.  Are those not allowed?

A:  Teams will be mixed within their divisions in order to ensure that there is a mix of both grade levels on each team within each division.  Flag has always been a great opportunity for kids to meet other kids in town and make new friends.  If there are any extenuating circumstances, (i.e. - if a player will be transported to the field weekly by the parent of another player) please reach out to flagfootball@lynnfieldpioneeryfc.com to let us know.

 

Q:  I am owed a credit from NEFFL for a previous season that was cut short by COVID.  Will you honor that?

A:  Unfortunately, we are unable to honor credits provided to you by NEFFL.  LPYFC flag football is not affiliated with NEFFL flag football.  You will need to contact NEFFL in order to discuss your credit.

 

Q:  Speaking of COVID, what will be the protocols in place to ensure safety?

A:  All coaches, players, and referees will sanitize their hands upon entry and exit of the field.  Masks will be required by all of those at the game at all times – whether they are players, coaches, referees, or spectators.  Only one spectator will be allowed per child.  Full COVID guidelines will be released prior to the first game.  These guidelines are as of 02/15/21.  COVID is a fluid situation, so as things change, this could also change.
