Do you smell it? That’s football in the air. And if you picture yourself tossing around the old pigskin this season, the Greater Philadelphia Flag Football League (GPFFL) is looking for a few new players. Whether you’re a rookie or an old hat at the game, registration for the fall season has officially opened online. New this year, the league’s website also features a guide to the game (think: Flag Football 101), calendar of events and official team store.
There are two ways to sign up:
Go online and click “Join Today.” To sign up, you’ll need a valid credit card using Pay Pal. The initial startup fee is just to get you registered. Unlike in previous seasons, you will not be able to submit your registration form unless it is accompanied by a credit card payment.
You can also sign up in personally at Open Play events in August (see below), but it’s first come, first serve. If you wait too long you may miss out on a position.
How much does it cost?
If you pay before August 21, you’ll earn the early Bird Special of $60. If there are slots open after August 22, the registration fee is $70. Full-time undergraduate college students (proof required) get a discounted rate of $40.
Why do I have to pay to play?
Your money goes to the overall cost to pay for referees, the fields and insurance. It also gets you a team t-shirt.
