What is the best way to register my child for the NPCFL?
Online is the quickest and easiest. We do have walk-up registrations, however we require participants to register online with our league laptops. (lines..lines..lines) Registering online from home on your favorite device is by far the best way.
Does the NPCFL rent equipment?
Yes, we rent Helmets and Shoulder Pads only. The cost is $50 for the season. We require a deposit check for $100, the check is held in our lock box and is returned when the equipment is returned. The check must be submitted at the time of equipment pickup. Credit cards are not accepted, Cash may be used in lieu of check.
What other equipment will my child need to participate?
Chin strap, mouthguard, practice pants with pads and cleats. (Wait until your first practice and ask your coach about game pants and socks) Please see our NPCFL Equipment Guide for more detailed information.
Does my child need a physical to participate in the NPCFL?
Yes. The NPCFL will host a registration / physical day on June 11 at New Palestine Family Medicine. The cost is $20 per child. Physical forms will be available onsite. Physicals need to be turned into your coach the first week of practice.
What is the process for weighing in my child?
Weigh-in's will be performed by a NPCFL Board Member on the NPCFL scale. They are done at the walk-up registration and equipment pick-up days. Each participant will have one opportunity to weigh-in. THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WEIGH- IN MORE THAN ONCE. All weights must be submitted prior to evaluations, all late submissions will not be allowed to run the ball the entire season. NO EXCEPTIONS.
When and where can I pick up rental equipment?
Check the NPCFL Calendar for Equipment Pickup days. Bring your deposit check to the NPCFL trailers located near the NPCFL Fields. Board members will assist your child with fitting and finding the proper equipment. Remember, Board members have experience with equipment and fitting. Helmets will seem "tight" to new players, this is normal it will take time to get used to it. If you have a first time player, have them wear it around the house prior to evaluations to get used to it.
What if my child wants to play but I can't afford it?
It is NPCFL's goal that ALL children have the opportunity to participate. If you have an economic hardship or special needs, please contact League President, Russ Steele, at 317-379-0112. All inquiries will be held confidential.
