Please access the HFL Crusaders website directly to register for the upcoming 2019 Fall Season!

For the 2019 Spring Season the SW Crusaders have joined forces with the Fuquay Bengals to participate in a Spring Flag Football league. All information pertaining to this opportunity can be found on the Bengals Website
Please notify us once you have registered so we can group the teams accordingly!

2019 Fall Season Registration is now open! We have a few new changes that have been introduced this season to include the following:

1)     Age groups for teams. The following age groups are available for the upcoming season:
a.      10U       Ages 8-10    (110lb ball carrier weight limit)
b.      12U       Ages 11-12  (145lb ball carrier weight limit)
c.      14U       Ages 13-14  (no limit)
d.      JV          Ages 15-16  (no limit)
e.      Varsity Ages  17-18  (no limit)

Players can choose to play up to an age group at a higher level with AD/parent approval. However, no players will be able to play down to a lower level.

2)     Players will need to have a DMV/Military ID to participate in the league this season.   

3)     The season will officially begin on the 1st Monday in August. (this year August 5th). We follow the NCHSAA guidelines for the league which requires 5 full days of conditioning prior to making contact in pads. This conditioning will occur in the first week (M, T, Th, F, Sat) of the season. Players/coaches can meet prior to this date to work on drills/conditioning, but no formal practices will be held before this date. A player will not be able to participate in contact drills until this requirement has been met. We strongly recommend having a physical for each player prior to the beginning of the season.

4)     Registration fees. During the registration process, you will encounter an option to volunteer in some way during the season (assisting with equipment distribution, league banquet, etc…). If you volunteer, then a discount will be applied during the registration process and the costs will remain as they were last year. It takes a small army to ensure things run smoothly throughout the season and your help is much needed and greatly appreciated! Don’t forget that if you register now you can take advantage of the 3-payment plan and early registration discount!

5)     Geographical location. Players will need to register to play with the team that has the closest practice location to the home of the registering parent/guardian. Any exceptions to this will require approval from the site A.D

HFL's contact football program is open for young men between the ages of 8 and 18. Players living near Apex, Cary, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina SW Raleigh and the surrounding areas would register with the Crusaders.  The following teams are currently available with the Crusaders:

12U Tackle Football Ages 11-12 Russ Zacek
14U Tackle FootballAges 13-14Sonny Wilson

Currently the SW Crusaders practice on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-8:30 at our practice field on Pierce Olive Rd. in Apex NC and play home games at Holly Grove Middle School in Holly Springs, NC.
10U Mighty Mite

The Mighty Mite Tackle Football team is for boys ages 8-10. This is a great age group for young boys that might not have prior experience to learn the game of football.  Fundamental drills and techniques are taught at this level that they can use the rest of their football career. The coaches are able to work directly with the boys both during practice and even during the games - as 1 coach from each team is on the field throughout the game, providing key insight and situational learning opportunities as they occur. Some of the rules are modified a bit to ensure safe, competitive play at this skill level to include:
No special teams
Shortened Field of play (80 yards)
Defense cannot lineup over center
No punting. Ball is placed at opposing 20 yd line if punting option is selected

12U Youth

The 12U Tackle Football team is for boys ages 11-12. Fundamental drills and techniques are taught at this level that they can use the rest of their football career. Safety is a highest priority and proper techniques are reinforced to minimize any potential injuries.
