Fall 2019 Season Information
Fall season has ended!
Info on the upcoming season -
NVFFL fall seasons have player evaluations to help create some
parity between teams. This is not a perfect science, but it did help during the 2018 season. Tentative dates for player evaluations are August 10 and 17.
Coaches may request up to 5 players. Other player request may be honored, but it depends on the outcome of the player evaluations.
Early bird rate of $155 ends on June 30. Regular fee is $185, with late fees kicking in on Aug. 11 (go up to $210).
Week of August 19 - team rosters are released and practices may begin.
Week of August 26 - season schedule will be released.
All teams will play at least 7 games in the regular season. The top 4 teams in each Division will play in a single-elimination tournament, while teams not in the tournament will play "fun" games against other lower-placed teams. The fall season will start September 7 and end on November 9. All games will occur on Saturdays, with make up games possible on Thursday and Friday nights. More information is below.
Teams will consist of no more than 10 players, and it is a 5 on 5 format.
Friend and Coaching Requests:
The NVFFL strongly encourages playing with friends and works hard each season to make sure it can honor all friend requests. This being said, evaluations will take place and have a major impact on team placement. The best way to ensure that you get to play with requested friends is to coach a team! Click HERE to sign up your player for an evaluation (Saturdays August 10 at 3pm or August 17 at 9am).
In addition, the NVFFL cannot place your player on a team based on a desired practice location or day of practice.
Coaches are in control of when and where to practice. Before the season begins, teams are allowed two practices a week - once during the week and again on the weekend. When the season begins, teams may only practice one day a week, and are allowed to arrive early at their game on Saturdays to warm up. If during the season your team has a bye, your team may practice that Saturday as well.
Game Location an Times:
All games will be played at the Virginia Hills Baptist Church at 6507 Telegraph Road, Alexandria, 22310. Games will generally occur every Saturday anytime between 8am and 5pm, and the NVFFL works to try and have each Division play around the same time each week. But, this is not a guarantee, so please be flexible as your game times may vary week to week.
In addition, should there be a need to make up any cancelled games, make up games will be scheduled on future Saturdays as time allows. If a Saturday is not available, games will be made up on Thursday or Friday evenings between 6-8pm.
Weather and Cancellations:
The NVFFL hates to cancel games, but it is necessary from time to time. We will play through rain, cold and heat, but we will postpone games due to lightning. Should there be a need to cancel any games, the NVFFL will send an email out to all coaches and parents.
