Welcome Back, DSFNL Families!

Together we use the FUN game of Flag Football to develop the character of our Kids.. "Winners are not defined by records but rather character- I am so proud of our effort to positively shape the kids in our Community". 

Spring 2017 season was simply the best Season so Far! The Best Ref Crew, Most Balanced Divisions, and Most FUN yet!

Let's do it all over again!

COACHING TIPS

Remember the regular season is about Team development, “EVERYONE makes the PLAYOFFS”; so Keep it FUN!!

The impact you can make on this Community and this new generation can be life altering.   The Life lessons you teach will be much more enduring than your record.

Whether you like it or not you are role models.  Control your sidelines.  You set the tone for the Players, Parents, and ultimately the league; so win or lose, do it with Class. Demonstrate Good Sportsmanship, shake hands after every game, and genuinely thank the opponent for the opportunity to compete.

“New Spotlight Player weekly award= $20 Stuft Pizza gift card.  Coaches please be active nominating your players for Community, Academic or Athletic excellence!  Every week we will select an individual that best embodies the ideals we prize as a League. 

Lastly, Control you Sidelines Remind your Families: “Coaches Coach, Refs Ref, Players Play and Parents Cheer.  If we all stick to our roles we will have another Banner Season.
