Additional Information

  • EQUIPMENT - LASOAR, with the help of our sponsors, will provide all equipment needed for play.  This will include:  Footballs, flags, team t-shirt and/or mesh pinnies.  Our flag football league is a non-contact activity, however, you may choose to purchase additional safety equipment such as a mouth guard, knee or elbow pads, and/or helmet.  These items are not required but may help protect your young player in the case of accidental collision.
  • COACHES - LASOAR invites parents of players to volunteer coach (no football experience necessary, some experience working with youth may be helpful).  We also hire and seek volunteers from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette to coach/assist our parent volunteers.  Interested in helping out?  Email laura@lasoar.org.
  • SNACKS - LASOAR utilizes Signupgenius.com to organize snack sign ups.  A snack sign up link will be sent out via e-mail at least 2 weeks prior to Session 1.  Sign up is voluntary and much appreciated!  Please respect your LASOAR Neighborhood Sports host location as a nut-free environment as some children may have a nut allergy.
