New! NYBAA offering Flag Football!

For Boys and Girls, Grades 1 - 6

Updated Wednesday June 19, 2019 by Jennifer Banks.

We are planning to have a lot of fun this Spring!!!

Parents, we thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding! This is our first time running a flag football season.  Thank you for your understanding as we figure things out and may even need to make some changes mid-season.  

Cost:  $85.  Any proceeds generated from flag football will be used to support our tackle football program in the fall.

Coaches needed:  Coaching youth league ball is fun and rewarding.  If you’d like to coach, please register yourself as a volunteer (similar process as registering your child to play.)  You can learn more about what’s needed from coaches HERE.

Equipment:  No equipment is needed. T-shirts will be provided.  Cleats are recommended.  (No metal cleats allowed.)  Mouthguards are optional.

Schedule: All games and practices will be on Saturdays.  The season will run from Saturday March 16th through Saturday May 25th.  Each team will practice immediately before their game.

The following schedule for the season is TENTATIVE.

Regular Season

March 23rd - May 25th

 

Evaluations:  What are evaluations, and why do we have them?  Click here to learn more about Evaluations. 

After the evaluation process, coaches will contact their players to introduce themselves and inform parents about the practice schedule, etc.  YOU SHOULD HEAR FROM YOUR ASSIGNED COACH sometime between March 17th and 22nd.

Communications:  This season we are encouraging parents to utilize the technology the league is providing.  You can install the SI PLay app for FREE on your smart phone and use it to see your child's game schedule, etc, once that has been assigned.  You will need the same log-in information as you used to register your child online, but once you are in, you shouldn't have to log in again.  This is a great way to know about weather cancellations, etc!

Furthermore, your child’s team will have a dedicated webpage on our website where you can view the schedule, etc.

Please spread the word about NBYAA Flag Football.  The more players, the better! We are LOCAL ORGANIZED FUN sports for the North Buncombe community!
