Flag Football Sign-ups Close August 10

Dear HEWYBL Flag Football Families:                                                        

 Registration for Boys Fall Flag Football is now open for Fall 2021.   

Please register on line at www.HEWYBL.com.   Select REGISTER at the upper right-hand corner of the screen and follow the instructions.

HEWYBL flag football typically draws players from Allentown, Cranbury, East Windsor, Hamilton, Hightstown, Millstone, Monroe, Robbinsville, Roosevelt, West Windsor and other surrounding towns

Registration Details:

  • Late Fee of $10 starts on July 26
  • Registration closes August 10
  • Multi-child discounts

Divisions and Costs:

6U: Born in 2014, 2015 or 2016 -- $90

8U: Born in 2012, 2013 or 2014 -- $150

10U: Born in 2010, 2011 or 2012 -- $150

12U: Born in 2008, 2009 or 2010 -- $150

14U: Born in 2006, 2007 or 2008 -- $150

18U: Born in 2002, 2003, 2004 or 2005 -- $125

League age is based on age on January 1, 2021.  Each age group overlaps by a year with the age group above it, essentially allowing players to play “up” a year if they wish.

Spots will most likely fill up.  We had to turn away approximately 20 players in the spring.  Playing spots are awarded in the order payments are received, not order of sign up.

Evaluations, Player Draft and Season:

6U:  No evaluations.  No draft. This division runs as part-clinic, part-game as we teach these young players the basics of flag football.   We work with these players as one group.

8U-10U-12U-14U: Evaluation required.  Draft held.  Each player must attend ONE evaluation session. These are currently scheduled for July 21 (6-7 p.m.), August 11 (6-7 p.m.), and August 14 and 15 (9-11 a.m.) at Disbrow Hills Park. Player drafts will be held on August 18 and 19.  Only coaches need to attend the draft.  After the player draft is completed, teams will be posted to the HEWYBL web site and jerseys will be ordered.

HEWYBL is a recreational league and it uses player evaluations and a draft process to try and assemble teams of equal physical capability so we can have more equally matched games.  We do not accept requests to be placed with a specific coach.  A player may request to be placed with one friend if both friends make the request to be placed with each in the NOTES section of their registration.  Otherwise, we really view flag football as a way to have fun and make new friends along the way.

18U: No evaluations.  No draft.  This is a more competitive division.  If you are in the 18U Division, and have a group of friends from your high school that would like to form a team, please reach out to and give us a name of the players on your roster.  Players in Senior Varsity may also sign up as “free agents” and will be assigned to one of the Senior Varsity teams.

Coaches: Each team may have up to two coaches, and each coach will automatically get his son in the draft.  If your child is looking to play with a friend, volunteering to coach with the friend’s parent is the best way to guarantee that happens.

Game and Practice Schedule

Regular-season games will start on September 11 and continue through October 30.  Playoff games will be held on November 6-7 and November 13-14.  Most games are played on Saturdays.  Exact game times cannot be determined until registration is complete and we know how many players are signed up.  However, games start with the 14U age group at 9 a.m. and continue with 12U, 10U, 8U and 6U, ending at about 2 p.m.   Games take approximately one hour.

Tentative game dates for Fall 2021 regular season are as follows for 14U, 12U, 10U, 8U and 6U:

September 11

September 13-17 (day depends on age group)

September 18

September 20-24 (day depends on age group)

September 25

September 12

September 19

September 26

October 3

October 10

October 24

Practice: Teams typically practice once per week for an hour to an hour and a half. The day, time and location are selected by the team’s coach.  If your son cannot attend practice on certain days due to religious education, other sport conflicts, etc., please indicate this on the NOTES section of your registration. 6U and 18U teams do not hold practices.

Equipment

HEWYBL provides each player with a reversible NFL Flag team jersey, NFL Flag shorts and a set of sonic-pop flags.  You need to provide a mouth guard (players may not participate without one) and cleats.  Additional equipment, such as receiver’s gloves, sleeves, etc. are acceptable, but not required.

Volunteers

HEWYBL is a non-profit organization run 100 percent by volunteers. We are looking for volunteers to help with the following:

  • Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches (We can’t play without them!)
  • Division Heads
  • Evaluations

If you can help with any of these, please make a note of it on your registration and/or send an email to hewyblflag@optimum.net

Coaches Clinic:

Not that many parents grew up playing flag football, and thus, can be intimidated by coaching it.  However, it is not terribly difficult to be a competent youth flag football coach, and we have to replenish coaches at the youngest levels every year.  We will hold a coach’s clinic on August 14. The clinic will cover rules, offensive plays, defensive schemes, playbooks, helpful apps and practice drills.  If you are interested in coaching, but feel you would like to have a better understanding of the game, how to run a practice, etc., please reach out to to sign up or express your interest on your child’s registration.

Concussion Awareness Training

As many of you know, HEWYBL requires all coaches to take the Online Consussion Training offered by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).  We are now rolling this awareness program to parents/guardians of our youth athletes. Attached is a link for the Concussions Awareness Fact Sheet which all should review.  This Fact Sheet is also located in our Documents tab from the Home Page.  The Online Concussion Training is required for coaches and recommended for parents and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion.  The free course takes only 30 minutes to complete and keeps our children safe.
