Is it full contact?
Yes, it is full contact, but there are many rules in ALL divisions for safety reasons. There are NO punt or kickoff returns. The Stallions provide top line football equipment for maximum protection. Stallions coaches and players are members of HEADS UP FOOTBALL and the players are all taught how to play the game safely.
Can my son play on a specific team?
There are NO guarantees that players will be together AT ANY LEVEL. In an effort to balance both talent and weight, the only consideration for requests is that brothers in the same division will be kept together unless requested otherwise.
Will my son play even if he's just a beginner?
YES! The Stallions pride themselves in giving EVERY boy the opportunity to play in EVERY game. We are not about winning. We are about giving every boy who shows up and works at it, the opportunity to play! Some positions require certain special skills and play knowledge. Weight restrictions will come into play as well when positions are assigned.
Does football conflict with other sports?
Yes. Fall baseball and soccer is played on Saturday and Sundays - SO IS FOOTBALL! There will inevitably be conflicts when boys try to play football and another sport. The players will learn how to play football on Saturdays, progressing from week to week and it is important to DO YOUR BEST to try and make every practice.
Missing practices and games can affect playing time.
Can my son play Middle School football as well?
Yes, but understand that it is a major commitment to do so. The Middle School usually practices 4-5 nights a week and plays a game per week. Along with the Stallion's weekends, be prepared for football, 7 days a week for 3 months!
Will there be facilities at the games?
Yes, we request that the restrooms are open on Sundays. On game days there is also a concession stand, with the usual assortment of refreshments and tasty morsels! Also available will be Stallions apparel, T shirts, Sweatshirts, Hats, etc!
Are there any scores and write ups about each game?
Game recaps are posted each week under each team's home page by the individual team. If you notice that game recaps are NOT being submitted, please contact your head coach and volunteer to help! Recaps are usually posted within a couple days. They should not be too long and they should, throughout the season, mention EVERY player on the team!
NOTE: All recaps are reviewed and edited by the league.
