SPRING 2024 – WEEK 1 SCHEDULE
- All Semi-Pro and Recreation Division teams can have a maximum of THREE players that also play in an upper division.
*** No player can play on any team, for any reason, on two teams in the same division. If you choose to have players from an upper division on your team, the league will not guarantee that those teams will not play at the same game time during the regular season or playoffs. It it the responsibility of the player to decide which team they play on if a conflict occurs.
- Teams will have to play teams from other divisions on occasion until the midseason realignment.
*** If you play on two teams, it is possible that both teams end up in the same division. You will be required to choose which team you are on for the rest of the season. This cannot change after you decide.
How much does a team cost?
All divisions are $575 per team. This includes your league fee and ten standard jerseys. When you register, you will have the option to add additional jerseys, upgrade your jersey material, ink color, etc. for an additional cost. All teams will pay the referees at the coin toss of each game $20 per team.
I do not have a team to register. How can I get involved?
You can register as an individual and we will find you a team for the season. You can continue to try to find a team on your own through our social media channels or if you find one through scrimmages at local parks. If you find a team on your own, we will refund your registration fee. Individual registration fee is $75 per player.
What are the age groups for participation? Do you have a youth program?
All players must be at least 16 years old to participate. All players ages 16-19 will be required to have the waiver form signed by a parent. The typical age range is 20 years of age and up and we have a few teenage players as well as players in their 40s or 50s each year.The Knoxville Flag Football League (KFFL) currently does not offer any youth or children’s programs and are unfortunately not aware of any. Please contact Knoxville City Parks Department or Knox County Parks and Recreation to inquire about any programs in the area.
Are women allowed to participate? Is there a co-ed division?
We currently do not offer any women’s or co-ed divisions, but there are no restrictions on women participating on any teams.
What division should I sign up for?
The Pro division will be our highest competition level, the semi-pro division is typically close to the same competition level as Pro and the Recreation Division is designed for teams new to flag football or requiring a lower level of competition. We will review all teams after registration and move teams up or down divisions if necessary.After Week 4 and after the regular season, we will adjust divisions as needed as well to help ensure fair competition and to try and prevent sandbagging.
Can I play on multiple teams?
Players are allowed to play on multiple teams in different divisions only, however we cannot guarantee or cannot always schedule all of your teams at different times. Teams in the Semi-Pro and Recreation Divisions are allowed to have a total of three players on their roster from an upper division. These players are not interchangeable and must be declared prior to the beginning of the season. If you lose one of those players or they do not show up for a game, you will not be allowed to replace them with another upper division player, even on a temporary basis.If one of your teams is moved up due to our fair play policy, those players will have to choose which team they play on for the remainder of the season. You cannot play on two teams from the same division at any time.Failure to obey this policy will result in both teams potentially forfeiting games. Captains are responsible for knowing their rosters and who participates.
Can I request game times during the season?
Unfortunately due to the amount of players and individual needs, we cannot accept any requests for your schedule during the season. The only thing we are able to accommodate is if you need to have a bye week for any reason. If any team has a bye during the season, they will play a double header on another regular season week.
Do all teams make the playoffs?
Yes, all teams will play 8 regular season games and be eligible for the post-season, single elimination tournament in your division.
