Please scan entire page (and rest of the website) before contacting the league with questions. Chances are your answers are here. Scroll towards bottom for non-registration related info. 

We highly encourage all families interested in playing to sign up soon. WE DO NOT ALLOW LATE REGISTRATION (Late entries will be WAIT LISTED ONLY, and added only if players drop). Every season, we get about 25 calls the day after registration closes – so don’t wait! Last season we had 56 kids on the wait list.

NOTE – while this section if for the BCS, GBCS and Future Stars leagues, click on the prior links to get division specific info (GBCS to come).

General Questions D6 – D12

FALL REGISTRATION ENDS 7/31/22 (midnight).

SPRING 2023 REGISTRATION ENDS 1/15/23 (midnight).

A $25 registration fee will be deducted from all refunds, prior to the season and $50 will be deducted from in-season refunds. “In season” is once jerseys and insurance have been ordered, usually about a week after registration closes.

D6 – D12 is draft format, so only way to “guarantee” your child plays with his/her friends is by becoming a Head Coach. You get to pick the kids (if available), your coaches, team name, colors and practice time! Even if you’ve never played football — we’ll give you the tools to success, including a playbook, roster work book, and coaching mentorship with an experienced league coach (by request). So jump in and help out – your kid will thank you!

Starting in the Fall of 2022, all uniforms will include a custom jersey, color rush pants and matching socks. Players will no longer be able to elect to not purchase pants, as we are no longer reusing the black practice pants since the league began.

The price of the uniform is included in your registration, along with their individual insurance policy, practice field and game field rentals.

Playing Age

YOUR CHILD’S AGE ON 7/1/22  IS YOUR LEAGUE PLAYING AGE – for the year (Fall and Spring Seasons).

For example, if your child turns 10 on July 16th, he/she will still be eligible to play in D9 all year, since he/she was 9 on July 1st. However, if your child turns 10 on June 30th, he/she will need to play in D10. Kids can also “play up” a division (not in D6, unless approved by the league) to play with friends. A child can NOT “play down” no matter the circumstanceAnd we highly discourage “playing up” for kids under 7.

Even if your child has played up in the past – we do not automatically play them up every season – so please let us know if you want to do that.

We generally do not allow 5 year olds to play no matter their grade, except in our Spring Future Stars division.

And none older than 12 – as of 7/1/22. So a child can play at 13, but only if he/she turned 13 AFTER 7/1/22 .

Again, the league works on a “League Playing Age” system – the age your child is on 7/1/22 is the division the play in for BOTH the Fall and Spring.

• D5 Future Stars (Spring only), D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, D11, D12, D13

Note: League reserves the right to merge age groups if we have low registration in specific division. We generally don’t do that in the Fall where registration is historically higher, but we have done it in the Spring.

If we do not have your child’s birth certificate on file, you MUST scan and email his/her legal birth certificate or Passport to: Again, your child will not be allowed to play without a birth certificate on file – so if your child is a new player, send it in right away.


In Draft format, Coaches may partner with two Assistant coaches prior to the draft, as long as both players are not considered Top 10 players.

The league is now full draft – D6 to D12.

Future Stars (Spring only) – League forms teams with input from coaches – various factors considered, including school affiliation, geography, friendships and talent parity

The Draft is a week or so after the combine, and Teams generally start practicing a week or two before the season starts.

Teams generally carry between 13-15 kids. Each team is required to have at 13 – as long as there are enough kids registered in that division. Since every player is required to get at least 14 plays, smaller teams are preferred, but with kids often playing multiple sports, teams need to make sure they can afford to miss a player or two. Over 14 seasons we’ve found 13-15 to be the sweet spot in terms of size.

Yes – and we ask every coach to be there as well. We are committed to having a fair and equitable playing field, and that starts with having as much info on the players teams are drafting.

The combine takes roughly an hour and is a lot of fun for the kids. They do a 40 yard dash, a flag pulling (and running with the ball) drill, a receiving drill, and passing for distance and accuracy. At each station they are given grades which the league the calculates to give each player a ‘Round” grade.


In the Fall, games are tentatively scheduled to start the first or second week of September. In the Spring they usually start the first week of March. Games are Friday Night, Saturday/Saturday Night or Sunday/Sunday Night.

For our Spring Season, we usually start in mid-March.

The season schedule will be posted online once field space is completely confirmed, which unfortunately isn’t generally until a week or so before the season starts due to field space assigning with municipalities/schools.

Teams practice at various (permitted) park and schools throughout the South Bay, depending on team make up and coach’s choice. Generally, teams practice once a week, usually for 1.5 hours – again depending on the team, age group, field space and coach.


Most games are played at Waller Field or the new West (Meadows) Field at Mira Costa High School or The Seahawk Bowl at Redondo Union High School. However, due to the incredible popularity of the league, we may play on some alternate fields like Pacific Elementary (MB), Manhattan Beach Middle School (MB), American Martyrs (MB), Aviation Field (RB), and Manhattan Village Park (MB). Where teams play is pretty much random, since we have 40+ teams a season, so we can’t take requests.
