Lake Wylie Athletic Association Parents,
Registration is now open for the 2023 Flag Football Season. Please read this email in its entirety because there is a lot of information about the expectations for this season.
WE HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE A MAJOR CHANGE IN WHEN PRACTICES AND GAMES ARE HELD THIS YEAR. WE ARE MOVING UP THE SEASON THIS YEAR TO HELP AVOID THE SUMMER HEAT AND FAMILY VACATIONS.
We are in need of head coaches for every age group, and can't start the season without them.
Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. We will have 5 different age groups this season and are expecting a big turnout this season. DO NOT wait until the last second to sign up.
Final day for registration is Tuesday, April 18th/(however, we could end it sooner if we fill up).
Practices and games will be held at Field Day Park, River Hills Church, and Allison Creek Church. Here is the proposed schedule for now:
Evaluations - Friday. April 21st at Field Day Park
6U Coed - no evaluations (you will be assigned a team)
8U Coed and 10U Coed - 5:30 - 7:00 PM
12U Coed and 14U Coed - 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Friday. April 28th - PRACTICE (all teams)
Friday, May 5th - PRACTICE (all teams)
Friday, May 12th - GAMES
Friday, May 19th - no activities (Field Day Park has a scheduled event going on)
Friday, May 26th - GAMES
Wednesday, May 31st, Thursday, June 1st OR Friday, June 2nd -1 GAME THIS WEEK
June 5th - June 8th - 2 GAMES THIS WEEK
June 12th - June 15th - 2 GAMES THIS WEEK
** Actual game time and practice times will not be finalized UNTIL teams are formed after evaluations are completed.
I would suggest not signing up for this season if you can't commit to playing on Friday nights in May and/or the first couple weeks of June. We understand that kids are also playing baseball, soccer, softball, volleyball, and travel sports during the week and on weekends. Most non-flag football teams don't play or practice on Friday nights so we thought it was a good opportunity to have the league completed by mid June to avoid the brutal summer heat and family vacations.

*** For safety purposes, LWAA reserves the right to move a player up or down in an age group if we feel like it is in the best interest of the child. Please feel free to make comments in the registration process if you feel like your child should move up in an age division or if they need to move down in an age division. The Flag Football Player Agent and Committee can help make a determination of which age group your child needs to be playing in based on our evaluation.
Since LWAA is a volunteer organization, we are really looking for Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches to help in all age groups. Please register online if you are interested in helping out. Also, if you have questions about age division/safety concerns, please feel free to reach out to Coby Kuhn at [email protected].
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. All our contact information is listed below:
Thank you and take care,
Flag Football Commissioner
