Spring 2022 Flag Football Registrations are OPEN!

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IN ITS ENTIRETY!!!
 
Thank you for registering into the WTAA Spring 2022 Flag Football Program! The next step is to be sure that you have you participants attend the MANDATORY TRYOUTS. Tryouts (combine) will take place on April 03, 2022. at the Decas Fields. 760 Main St. Wareham, MA. Your participant(s) will be evaluated using a NFL style combine to assess physical skills and ability. Participants will be ranked by WTAA volunteers. We do this to ensure that teams are balanced and fair. After tryouts, we will be holding a Draft. All players will be placed on a team regardless of skill level. No participant will be cut or denied placement on a team. Athletic wear and sneakers are required.
PLAYERS MUST SHOW UP TO THE TRYOUTS
If your participant(s) misses the Combine, then you must contact our Flag Coordinator Damon Solomon via email at [email protected] Your participant's name will be placed in a "Hat-Pick" and coaches will draw their name at random. Parents MUST make efforts to have their participant(s) at the Combine. This is how we ensure that teams will be balanced and fair.
 
NEW THIS SEASON 2022
  • HELMET POLICY
  • The WTAA will be providing certified protective helmets for ages 5-9. Helmets for these ages ARE MANDATORY. If your athlete is not in the mandatory age requirement this season, and you wish to still provide them a helmet, you can do so by purchasing them at the link provided "HERE"
  • We will be implementing our mandatory helmet policy in phases. For the 2023 season, ages 13 and under will receive helmets provided by the WTAA. For the 2024 season, ages 18 and under will be provided helmets.
  • NEW NON-VOLUNTEER FEE
  • We have added a "NON-Volunteer Fee" for parents that wish to not have to volunteer for the 2022 season. Parents that pay this optional fee will not be subject to WTAA minimum parent volunteer requirement. The fee is $100.00 and can be paid during the check out process when you register. If you do not pay this fee, and you do not volunteer at an event, then you will be subject to this fee being applied to your account at the end of the season. This fee MUST be then paid before you will be permitted to participate in any future WTAA program.
  • There will be a signup link posted for parents to login to and signup for a position(s). Once you signup for your position, AND you show up and actively participate in this position, you will have credit towards your minimum volunteer requirement.
  • MINIMUM VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT
  • Each WTAA parents/guardians with a registered participant(s) are required to volunteer at at least (2) slots/positions that are posted on the signup link. Failure to attend the minimum requirements will result in the $100 fee being applied to their account at the end of the season. This fee MUST be then paid before you will be permitted to participate in any future WTAA program.
  • SHORTS REQUIREMENT
  • Athletes will be issued official WTAA Flag Football shorts. Parents will no longer have to go to Shirt Shack to purchase shorts. The cost of these shorts are now included in your registration fees.
  • ALL GIRLS PARTICIPANTS
  • All Girls participants no longer have to register into the COED division in order to be qualified to register into the All Girls Division. You now can register just for the All Girls Division.
