There is an official weigh in when equipment is issued at the start of the season.

Is it full contact and is it safe?

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 and the
players are all taught how to play safely.

Can my son play on a specific team?

There are NO guarantees that players will be together AT ANY LEVEL. Requests can be noted on the registration form, but the likelihood of this occurring is remote at best. Siblings will be kept together if requested.


Do I need to provide any equipment?

All you need to bring are: cleats (non metal) preferred, or sneakers; athletic supporter/cup; mouthpiece (available for $2 at the weigh in). ALL players/parents/guardians are RESPONSIBLE for their equipment throughout the season. Failure to return equipment on the specified equipment return nights will result in a $350 charge. PLEASE take care of and return your equipment!

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 soccer or baseball?

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. Practices are just as important if not more so than attending games. As in any team or sport it is important to make every practice.


Missing practices and games can affect playing time and player position.

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!

Can we get a refund if my child does not like the sport?

There are NO REFUNDS ONCE EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN ISSUED! Refunds prior to the issuing of equipment will be subject to a 5% fee.

Will there be facilities at the games?

Yes, we request that the restrooms are open on Sundays. On game days we also operate a concession stand, with the usual assortment of refreshments and tasty morsels! Also available will be Stallions apparel shirts, 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! NOTE: All recaps are reviewed and edited by the league.
