Registration FAQs

When will HFL/Varsity Program have information on season/COVID status? - HFL will follow the lead of the Varsity program with our Junior High Program (7th & 8th Tackle) and lower divisions.  Information will be provided as we receive it but all indications is that Fall Sports are a go.  

What is the deadline for signing up? - The deadline for signing up will be dependent on the division. 

  • Tackle Division - August 4th.  This date coincides with notifying our league on number of athletes and number of teams for scheduling.  
  • Flex & Flag Football Divisions - Deadline is Labor day but the date for consideration for friend requests/school team formations will be  at the start of August.  See Key Dates page for more info.  

How are teams formed?  Flag football teams are formed with buddy requests and schools in mind.  We do our best to pair kids with their friends first while keeping the team small.  Teams are then formed by evening out teams to ideal team size numbers. 

If my child has a Flag Football Jersey from previous years, can they reuse?  - Yes.  Parents have an option of reusing jersey from last year.  

If my child needs a Flag Football Jersey, does my registration cover this?  No.  This is a change from previous years.  Registration costs have been reduced from previous years and no longer include jersey for Flag Football and Flex Football.  Jerseys can be purchased in registration.  The Tackle Program registration also covers jersey for program.  

Volunteer Shifts

Hopkins Football League requires that every family fulfill one volunteer shift per player registered during the season. If these hours are not fulfilled by the end of the season, you will be billed $250.00 offline via PowerPay.

League roles, including HFL Volunteer positions (board members, planning committees, league medic, etc.), coaches (head coaches, assistant coaches), and sponsors fulfill the volunteer requirements.  

All volunteer shifts must be registered using the "DIBS" page on the upper navigation bar above.  All volunteer shifts must be registered by the first week of October to be counted for season.
