    Flag Football Regular Season Begins!

    The start of our flag football season starts this weekend! At the bottom of this email is the schedule for this Sunday. Please note all teams are playing this weekend except for the Mojos, who start off the season with a bye. Please make sure your team shows up on time, as the pitch is only booked till 8pm, so games must start on time otherwise you will get less playing time as they must end on time.

    Submission of Scores
    Please remember after the game your team must submit your scores and stats to scores@hkafl.com - no score and no stats submitted means it's like your team didn't show up!

    Rule Revision
    The 7 seconds to throw rule will now be counted by the referee, as there is too much grey area on what 7 seconds is. As the referee has a stop watch, they will keep an eye on the 7 seconds. (However they no longer need to keep a track of stats)

    Playing Jerseys
    I'm told by the supplier Jerseys should arrive with us by tomorrow. Assuming the protests haven't affected deliver schedule. If they arrive tomorrow then we will bring them to the flag games on Sunday evening

    Monday Nights Football
    Don't forget to come join us on Monday nights at McSorley's to watch NFL Replays with no commercials! 50% discount on food and happy hour prices on drinks all night long. Possible games being shown this monday: Ravens vs Colts, Jets vs Chargers, Bengals vs Patriots.

    Registration Open & League Feedback

    Hong Kong American Football League
     
    Flag Football Registration Open!

    You may now register for the upcoming Flag Football season! The cost for a new comer this season will be $650, a slight increase from last season, as we will look to have more regular season games, and also have some more trophies and medals (which we allocated zero budget for last year).

    As you may have read, there will be some optional costs during registration. If you are a returning player who already has a Jersey, the renewal fee is $500. You will have the option to add a new Jersey ($180), a pair of shorts ($100) and a team social t-shirt ($110). (Please check with you team captain, they may have opted for a new design of Jersey or no shorts.)

    For New players who would like to join the league this season, click here to sign up. (If you have a new team, each member needs to sign up, if it's just you, sign up and we will find you a team!)

    For returning players, click here to renew your membership.

    Switching Teams? Or for Social members who would like to join the flag league, please click here to change your membership level.

    Please note Playing kit orders will be processed on Sept the 1st for it to arrive in time for the start of the season. If you have not signed up and PAID by then, you will not receive your playing kit in time for Game 1.


    League Feedback & Format

    Thank you to everyone who filled out our league feedback survey.  From feedback, we will be sticking to 1 division, 45 minute games, and same width field. We will however be having more games in the season, and will keep a better record of stats.

    To answer some of the comments:
    • Have a one day fun tournament where we mix up players onto different teams - we'll discuss with team captains and see if teams are interested in doing this mid season or after the season

    • At the moment no rule changes are being considered. If anyone has some rule changes they would like to suggest, please email us at flag@hkafl.com and we will review and discuss. If the rule is administratively plausible, then we will put it to the teams to vote for the rule change.

    • Hosting an Annual General Meeting - In our experience, no one ever turns up to an AGM, especially not a league with only 150 players. It just creates more work for the administration of the league. If anyone has questions about the status of the league, please email us at president@hkafl.com

    • Videoing games on to YouTube. It would be nice to have all games recorded and posted on to YouTube, we tried for the finals last year, but the trouble is the field is too big. We'd need camera men manning the camera, which we currently don't have the resources for unless people were willing to act as camera man and record games.

    The HKAFL Super Bowl Party this year was a great success. Thank you to all those who attended, we hope you enjoyed it. Thanks to your generosity we were able to raise HK$5,020 for Charity, through our raffle, that has been donated to the United Nations' World Food Programme to provide critical food assistance to families and children in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

    Thank you for donations from MizSpa, Now Sports, ASN, McSorley's, Andrea Fisher and Pierre Veyret for prizes for the raffle.

    Thank you to McSorley's for hosting us, and to Alegar for putting together some great music for the event.
