About the North Carolina Spring Football League
Register for 2014 NSFL Activities
The mission guiding the formation of the NSFL was to provide boys and girls with the opportunity to enjoy competitive football in a controlled environment. The league was successfully initiated in 2009 with our first season of Spring football. It remains our desire to build a competitive program offering contact football to boys and girl throughout the state.
The NSFL's current format includes football in the spring, football camps in the summer, and contact football in the fall. All league teams and camps are coached with an emphasis on Christ-like sportsmanship. Coaches and players are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that demonstrates a commitment to building a league based on principles.
We feel the NSFL has tremendous potential to establish a format that can be used to build similar programs throughout the state. We have been astounded by God's willingness to bless this program. With no forethought, we started spring football with 4 teams in the spring of 2009. When we began to promote the 2010 season, we expected about the same turnout. Instead of the 4 to 5 teams we expected, God blessed the league with 10 football teams. By the spring of this year, the NSFL consisted of around 1250 Players who are now responsible for the establishment of the league.
The North Carolina Spring Football League is committed to helping foster stronger father and son relationships. Each season, we schedule events like our Father and Son Game and our Kick, Punt, Pass Competition. These special occasions have been a tremendous success and highlight the difference between the NSFL and other secular leagues. We invite the entire family to join us on these fantastic days!
As we continue to build the league, we will base our development, conduct, and decisions on the principles of the Christian faith lived out in the life of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

NSFL Age/Weight Requirements and Schedule
The Spring Football League will kickoff its 2014 season of contact football , February with a two-week conditioning program. The program is designed to help condition the young men participating in the fall contact programs and allow coaches to assess the skill level of each player. We will play regular game schedule, with 2 weeks of playoffs for the top seeds. This conditioning program should provide a great foundation for the fall season of contact football, which officially starts on, August 2014 The conditioning program is strongly recommended for players of all ages, but families are not required to participate as a prerequisite to joining us for contact football.
Football practices will begin February 2014 for all age groups in all locations. Each location will hold practices on evenings throughout the season. Saturday, June 2014 has been reserved for our annually FAMILY DAY. We will play our first regular season game on April 2014 conclude our Spring activities with awards banquets on Saturday, June 2014 The banquets will be held in the evening at TBA.
The NSFL's contact football program is open to boys/girls between the ages of 5-14. Players will be assigned to teams based on the age and weight guidelines list in the table below. In addition to age and weight, skill level will also be a determining factor in team placement. Exceptions to the age and weight guidelines will be made as deemed necessary. These exceptions must be approved by the league director and will be handled on an individual basis.
Practices will be conducted on weekday evenings with games being played on Saturdays. The practice schedule is also listed below by age group. A complete season schedule will be emailed to each family once the team distribution lists have been created. The frequency of our practices differs by age bracket. The number of practices has been limited to reduce scheduling burdens for families participating. In addition to our weekly practices, we will play one game each week. Games are scheduled for Saturdays to allow dads to serve as coaches, assistants, referees, score keepers, etc. Our game schedule will begin on Saturday, April 2014. This game should provide some good, old-fashioned competition and a bunch of laughs.
