How do I register?
You can register at www.restonseahawks.org/Registration or by clicking the “Register Now” button on the right side of the screen.

What equipment do I need to bring?
Only a mouth guard is required to participate in the practices and games. Football cleats are encouraged, but not required.  Your registration fee includes a team jersey and a set of flags.
How do you keep the teams “even”?
We want the league to stay competitive and evenly matched so that all the players can enjoy the game of flag football.  Before the season starts we will hold an assessment that rates players with the goal of placing them on the most appropriate team. The kids will perform agility and speed drills that help establish their current athletic ability.

Spring 2021 Flag assessments will be on Saturday, April 3rd and Saturday, April 10th (if needed).  All registered players must attend (1) assessment session to be placed on a team.

How can I request my child to play with their sibling, friend, or request a coach?.
Please any special requests to the Co-Commissioners Brad Love and Tabitha Love. We will try our best to honor your request, but we cannot make any guarantees.
