Players who missed out on our combine and draft will have one last opportunity to play the Fall season. We will be conducting a supplemental draft between 09/09 and 09/16. On 09/09 we will have a round robin scrimmage starting at 1:30 PM at Halfmoon Town Park. Drafted teams as well as a pool of up to 24 free agent players will participate in the scrimmage. Coaches will be evaluating the free agent players to determine who they want to add to fill out their rosters in the supplemental draft.
Players interested in participating should create an account at upstateflagleague.com, register for the combine and pay a $50 deposit. Players can pay via credit card online, or arrange to meet with the commissioner otherwise. The first 24 players to do these three things will be eligible for the supplemental draft. If we do not reach 24 players prior to the scrimmage players can sign up there. We will be drafting 15 players in the supplemental draft to fill out the rosters to 16 players. Any undrafted players will receive a full refund. There are no refunds for drafted players.
The full price for playing the season is $80 for offensive linemen and $95 for everyone else. Players will also need to purchase a jersey for $25. League fees include referees & highlights for the entire season + playoffs as well as the opportunity to win some nice weekly and end of season cash prizes from our sponsors.
gotbeer.com is giving $500 cash to our league MVP, Nature’s Own is giving $400 cash to our coach of the year, Capital District Lawn Care is giving $350 to our offensive lineman of the year. Each week, the Albany Distilling Company will give our player of the week a pair of distillery tour tickets and a t-shirt. Wolf Hollow Brewery will give the offensive lineman of the week some swag - a t-shirt, hat or even a gift certificate.
The end of season award voting will begin Monday, 11/06.
