The Delaware Football League is currently holding registrations for its upcoming 2014 season.

The DFL is a non-profit organization dedicated to instilling the fundamentals of football and cheerleading for children ages 5-12.

The purpose of the DFL is to inspire children to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness.

This year the league has formed a community partnership with the Delaware Township Ambulance Corp, who will be present at each of the games.

All league coaches have received and are certified in concussion aid and are currently working toward receiving certification in basic first aid and CPR. They will also receive training on the newest coaching techniques.

The DFL has maintained a flag program because they believe safety and skill development are paramount to the success of the program. The tackle division is developing skills that go beyond the basics; preparing them as Warriors and Timberwolves.

The DFL Cheer program is guided by the rules and regulations of The American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators, and provides a great foundation in cheer for each level. They aim to teach the importance of positive attitude, teamwork, commitment, discipline, and good sportsmanship.

The coaches and Board of Directors work closely with the middle and high school coaches of Delaware Valley and East Stroudsburg North to insure players and cheerleaders are ready for the next level.

To keep the cost of registration at a minimum take advantage of Early Bird registration. Register by June 15, and save $20.

In addition, the DFL offers a $10 sibling discount.

There will be additional savings and incentives to those who refer new players to the league. Parents can now register online at www.delawarefootballleague.assn.la to sign-up for the 2014 season.
