Team registration is September 1st-11th at the City-Wide Athletics Office located at 4001 Dam Neck Road.  Entry fee is $675 per team. 
 
Games are tentatively scheduled to start October 4th and will run until mid-January. 
 
For more information, call the City-Wide Athletics Office at 385-0458.
Understanding Sand Football Scoring 
 
FootballSand football shares much in common with its grassy counterpart, but there are a few differences in the scoring.  A touchdown is worth 6 points. If a female runs, throws or catches a touchdown, it will be worth 9 points.

The scoring team has the option on the Point After Touchdown to try for 1 point from the 3-yard line, 2 points from the 10-yard line, or 3 points from the 15-yard line.  The offensive team must declare their intention prior to the officials putting the ball in play.  If the defense intercepts the ball and returns it for a score, it will count for the number of points the offense was attempting.

If a team is ahead by 25 or more points at any time in the second half, the clock becomes a running clock (no time outs).  If a team has a 40 point lead at half-time or gains a 40 point lead at any time in the second half, the game is over.
