Frequently Asked Questions

What if I get waitlisted?
You will be added to the waitlist by divisions. Players are placed on a team that loses a player from its original roster, or if more teams are added.

When is the registration cut-off date?
The registration deadline is March 1st, 2022. If you register before the deadline and are waitlisted, your registration is still valid until you get added to a team or the waitlist is dropped after week 2.

Can my child play up an age group or down an age group?
The league may allow for youth to play up or down an age group in extenuating circumstances. Requests may be made to admin@edmontonflag.com and must include appropriate reasoning. Please note we can not guarantee these requests will be granted.

Can I put in a request to play with certain players?
Yes, however, each player is limited to one friend request. In order for friend requests to be considered both friends must request each other. For example, If Bobbie requests to be on a team with Courtney, Courtney must request to be on a team with Bobbie.

How many players can play on a team?
A normal flag football team usually has 10-12 players, however, depending on the total number of players registered in a division, some teams may have less than 10.

What if the government shuts down sports will I get a refund?
Fees will be returned minus any hard costs committed. Anything that was ordered for the league will be delivered to all participants. We will not keep any goods paid for with registration funds.

Can I transfer fees to another season if the league gets canceled?
Yes, fees may be transferred to an upcoming season.
