2017 Spring Contact Jamboree
The HFL will kick off its 2017 Spring Contact Football Jamboree Tuesday, March 21st with practices for our teams in North Wake, South Wake, Greensboro, Davie County. The Spring Contact Jamboree is a four-week, action packed program designed to teach our players the game of football, develop their skills by position, and get them into shape. Players from ages 6 to 18 (as of August 31st, 2017) are encouraged to join us. The jamboree was a fantastic success last spring and we expect this year’s program to be even better. If you love football, come join us for the league-wide jamboree and day of individual and team contests on Saturday, April 22nd.
Football practices will begin for all age groups in all locations on Tuesday, March 21st.. Each location will distribute uniforms at this first practice. Our spring practices will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:15 pm to 8:00 pm (or until dark). Saturday schedules are listed below by location. Raleigh teams practice from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm and Greensboro teams practice from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm.

The HFL’s contact football program is open for young men between the ages of 7 and 18. See "About Us" for a full list of requirements. 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 all area directors and will be handled on an individual basis.
