Q: Do I have to attend the Player Evaluation Event?
A: The Maine Flag Football League strongly encourages EVERY player to attend this event. MFFL strives for competitive balance on the field, and this event goes a long way towards helping us to achieve that. Plus, it’s a ton of fun!
Q: What if I am a coach and I would like to enter a complete team? And would my team still need to attend the Player Evaluation Event?
A: If you are a coach and would like to enter a team into our league please email MaineFlagFootballLeague@gmail.com We do our best to accommodate players from the same town, while maintaining competitive balance. Having every player attend the evaluation event helps us to achieve that.
Q: What are the age groups, and which group should the player be in?
A: Maine Flag Football currently offers 12U and 14U Divisions. The age groups follow NFL Flag rules and are based on the players age as of January 1st of the current season. So if a player was 10, 11 or 12 years old on January 1st, they would be eligible for the 12U Divison. If the player was 13 or 14 years old on January 1st, they would be eligible for the 14U Division. Even if a player turned 15 on January 2nd, they could still play 14U for that season.
Q: What if the player is younger than 10 and wants to play flag football?
A: Many towns in southern Maine offer flag football programs for grades K-5. If your town does not offer flag football, please reach out to us at MaineFlagFootballLeague@gmail.com
