The HFL's flag football division has served the homeschool community with a Christ-based program for over a decade. Come join us for a great season of football and experience the difference. 

2014 Spring Season of Flag Football

The HFL's flag football program is for homeschool boys between the ages of 6 to 18. We offer two age divisions:

  • Mighty-Mite/Youth (ages 6 to 11)
  • JV/Varsity (ages 12 to 18)

The age guidelines are NOT absolutes. By offering flexible age guidelines, we hope to promote an atmosphere where brothers can consistently play on the same teams. If you would like to have a player placed in an older or younger age bracket, please communicate your intent when registering.

The 2014 spring season of flag football will begin with practices on Saturday, March 1st. The season will be approximately 10 weeks in duration. We have structured the league with teams meeting only once per week to limit the time required from participating families. Each team will have three Saturday practices, six to eight regular season games, and a minimum of one game in the League Championship Games which are scheduled for Saturday, May 17th in Raleigh, NC.

We encourage dads, when available, to volunteer as coaches. We have found that coaching provides a great opportunity for a father to share in the molding of his son's values and sportsmanship. We do not expect fathers to commit to coaching every game and do not wish for any of the coaches to feel obligated. Dads are welcome to coach as little as a partial game or as much as every game of the season. One football game with his dad as the coach can be a wonderful experience for a young boy. Previous coaching experience is not required.

It is because we feel a father's participation is so special to his son, that we schedule a father and son flag football game each season.   This game has consistently been a highlight of past seasons.  Where dads are not available to participate, we continue to encourage all league players to join us for this special activity. We have a lot of fond memories from these games each season.  The Father and Son Flag Football Games are scheduled for Saturday, April 19th. 

North Carolina teams are region based with teams representing SW Wake County, Northern Wake County, Guilford County, Forsyth County, Alamance County, and Cumberland County.. These programs are not limited to the players within the counties they service. We have many players commuting from outside these areas to join us each season. The HFL is also interested in launching programs in Durham, Wilmington, East Wake, and possibly the Alamance area.

If you are interested in helping to create a team in your
area, please contact us.
We need a minimum of 20 boys in an area to establish a division of the league in a community.  Families are not limited to teams located in a particular geographical area and are welcome to participate on the league team that best complements their homeschooling schedule.

Flag Football Registration Fees

The registration fee for flag football is $115 per player if payment is received or postmarked by February 15th. Families with three or more sons participating in the league will receive our large family discount rate of $295 if registering prior to the February 15th early registration deadline. This discounted registration will allow all brothers in a family to participate in our flag football programs for one fixed cost. After February 15th, the early registration discount will no longer apply. All registrations must be paid in full by February 15th for the discount to apply. Families registering after the early registration period ends will be charged $165 per player or $395 when registering three or more brothers.

Families needing financial assistance can take advantage of our Domino's Pizza fundraising cards to offset the cost of participating in the league. The fundraising cards are available upon request and are free to any family needing financial assistance. Please contact the league director, Earl Pendleton, at earl@homeschoolfootballleague.com for more information about financial assistance. In the past, we have used many methods to make sure no player is overlooked because of a financial hardship the family may be experiencing.

The cost of team uniforms, field rentals, awards, football equipment, league administration, and liability insurance are included in the participation fee. Beyond the purchase of a mouthpiece, no additional equipment is required. Mouthpieces can be purchased for 99 cents at many sporting goods stores or discount retailers, like Wal-Mart. Cleats are recommended, but are not required.

We are working to build a Christian football program that will compliment the homeschool family in every possible aspect. If you have any suggestions, we would love to hear them. Every detail of the league is still under prayerful consideration and we would love to have as many families as possible involved in the decisions, which will shape North Carolina's only football program exclusively for homeschool boys.
