How do I sign up for the Spring 2023 Season?

Registration is typically in late January/early February. 

Once the Spring 2023 schedule is finalized, it will be announced on our social media channels and website.

Follow us on Instagram @atxgfl and turn on profile notifications or subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates. 

Do I fall under Priority Registration?
If you were an active ATXGFL member in the Fall 2022 season and in good standings with the league, you are eligible for priority registration on a first-come, first-served basis or until capacity is reached (50% of the spots). We will send an email to the eligible members two days prior to open registration with links for playing and non-playing members, so please check your emails to access priority registration. 

Please note that registrations made before (general registration date) at 8am will be checked for eligibility and ineligible registrations will be removed

 

If I do not fall under Priority Registration, when can I register?
Registration for the remaining spots will then be open to all individuals two days following priority registration. This includes first-time registrants and existing members alike. Once the schedule is finalized, it will be posted on our social media channels and website. 

I missed Open Registration, How can I still sign up to play?
Once registration has reached capacity, we will open the waitlist. Individuals on the waitlist before the draft may be prioritized based on the waitlist order. After the draft, individuals on the waitlist may be placed on a team based on the combined factors of the comparable evaluated skill level of the player they are replacing and waitlist order.

Can I join the league if I don't want to play football?
Sign up as a Non-Playing Member! 

How much does Registration cost?
The registration cost for this season is $85 for playing members and $50 for non-playing members and will help cover costs for field and equipment, jerseys, socials, and referees. Payment will be due at time of registration. There is no registration cost for individuals on the waitlist. Only when an individual is removed from the waitlist and placed on a team will they pay the registration cost for the season.

How is ATXGFL responding to the COVID-19 pandemic?

What are the prerequisites to be a Captain?

Any previous ATXGFL player (in good standing) is eligible to be a captain;  

Captains are expected to: 

  • Have an intermediate to expert knowledge of on-field flag football strategy that allows them to actively contribute to the success of their team (or be willing to select someone who does)

  • Be willing and able to communicate with their team effectively both on the field and in regular emails, as well as with referees, board members and other captains as necessary

  • Be able to take charge of team management issues such as ensuring playing time and positive experiences for players at all levels of play and varying goals and expectation

Is the combine required for new league players?

Attending the combine is highly recommended for new players so Captains may make a more accurate assessment of individual players' skill for the draft.
