FAQ

Football (9)

I’ve never played football. I’m afraid to look foolish.

Hey, no worries. We have all been there. Come to our pre-season clincs, or join a team and come to practices and we will teach you the basics!

I’m out of shape and I’m afraid I won’t be able to keep up.

We welcome players of all fitness levels. We will let you play to the best of your fitness abilities and well try and help you on your path to becoming more fit.

Do I have to identify as LGBT to play in the league?

No, we love our straight allies! All we ask is that you like to play and have a good time!

Do I have to be “OUT” to play in the league?

No, there is no requirement to be “out” to be on the team. All we ask is that you come to the practices and games and have a great time!

Is there a lot of contact in Flag Football?

This is not tackle football. While the occasional bump does happen, no on is going to tackle you to the ground. A player is “tackled” by having their flags pulled. That being said, we do allow blocking within the first 5 yards from the line of scrimmage. Again, a block is allowed, without the arms extended, within the first 5 yards.

Will I Get Tackled?

While the occasional bump or body contact does happen, tackling is strictly against the rules in Flag Football. The ball carrier gets “Tackled” when their flags are pulled from their waist.

What equipment do I need to bring or buy?

The great thing about flag football is that there is very little equipment needed. For footwear, we recommend that you wear plastic cleats (metal spikes are not allowed) and tennis shoes are fine too. SAGFFL and the NGFFL competition games require that you wear shorts without pockets.
Other items you might want to have in your bag:

  • Sun screen
  • Water bottle or jug
  • Athletic tape
  • Plastic frames and lens sunglasses

How much does it cost and what is the money used for?

Each season that you play requires a $50 fee. In addition to paying for your Diablos t-shirt, some of the uses for this money are:

  • Game Field Fees
  • Out of town Trips – car rental, hotel rooms, etc
  • Equipment – Flags, practice gear, cones, etc
  • Annual league party
  • BBQs and other team outing

Our Commision does not get paid and everyone on the team and commission donate our time and talents on a strictly voluntary, free basis.

Is there a Draft? How are people put into teams?

Individuals, once they register, are placed in a draft list.

Each Team Captain, on the day of the draft, will receive a copy of the registered players.The captain that gets a #1 gets to pick the first players. Person who got #2, picks the next player and so on.

Every player is selected during the draft. Once all players have been selected, a note is made on the last captain that drafted the last registered player. If any new player(s) registers before registration is closed is then assigned to the next team captain in line.
