Spring 2021 Season Information 

Sand Football is back for Spring 2021!  However, due to current COVID protocols, we are still permitted to set up only one field which will again limit the number of teams we can accept to 10 (5 Competitive, 5 Recreational).  In addition, due to the current allowable maximum for beach gatherings, teams may carry a limit of 10 players. The regular season will be an abbreviated 5-week (4-games, 1 bye) format for both divisions, with playoffs for qualifying teams in the Competitive League.

The time between games will remain extended to ensure safe entry/exit of teams.  The few minor rule changes that were implemented to ensure that we are minimizing contact and promoting social distancing will also remain.  Registration will only be open for one week, so get in the game!
