Tournament Structure & Team Selection
Games will be played 7 on 7. Please see the rules here. Our goal is to maximize the number of games and make the tournament as enjoyable/competitive as possible. We will play a number of games on Saturday to establish team seeding for a tournament bracket on to be played on Sunday. Teams will consist of 7-10 players and we estimate 8-10 teams, so there will be a lot of play time.

Team selection will be made by the Captains and the MFL Committee based on last year's tournament, the post tournament peer evaluation survey and insider information. We hope to use the data we get this year, along with skills competition results to rank players for next year. Our goal is to get all on-time registrants a spot on a team.

Skills Competition
Throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday, participants will test their football skills in various throwing, catching and defending drills to let everyone prove they are the best in one-on-one competition for PRIZES.

04-30-17 Picnic or Football? Both Please


Twas two weeks before the tournament and all through the field,
 Every player was stretching, even the elders.

 The flags were stuffed in the crate with care,
 And Yager dreaded their pulling and deciding just where.

 The defense was all lounging around on the bench,
 The slowest one cranky and being a grouch.

 And I in my shorts and t-shirt threadbare,
 Was gnashing my cleats and pulling out my underwear.

 When out from the side there arose such a platter,
 I sprang from my chair to flee over to the chatter.

 Away to the food I flew like a flash,
 Tripped over a volleyball and arrived with a rash.

And so ended the day, not a single one sore.
Please don't forget, to work out your core.
