Frequently Asked Questions

When do I pay? If you attend a sign up day to register in person, please make your payment then. If you register online, your payment will be due at the first session. Checks should be made out to "Somersworth Football Boosters."

What do the kids wear? Shorts, T-shirts, sneakers (or rubber cleats for football). Once team shirts are handed out, typically week 2, kids should be wearing their team T-shirt. It does get hot on the field; light clothing is preferred and SPF is recommended. 

Can the kids bring their own water bottles? Yes, water will also be available at the concession stand. 

Will the concession stand be open? Yes, the concession stand will offer grilled burgers, hotdogs, fried dough, french fries, cold drinks, and snacks. 

Is there contact in flag football? No, there may be some accidental contact but SORO is meant to be safe and fun for all. Rules will be enforced to promote safe play. 

Who are the coaches? Coaches are athletes from our Somersworth High School football and cheer teams donating their time in the off season to improve the quality of football and cheering for the youth of our community. Somersworth High School and Youth Football League coaches will be coaching flag as well. 

Is there anything I can do to help? Stay at the field, support your child and enjoy watching all the fun. Volunteers may be needed in the concession stand or to help set up and break down each day. Each player will also be given raffle tickets to sell to help raise money for the program and keep registration costs at a minimum.

If I know somebody that wants to play but they haven't signed up yet can they still sign up? Yes- newcomers are welcomed to register at the gate of the first session. 

What do I do when I show up for the first Thursday session? Check in at the registration desk, pay fee if you need to, and ensure contact information is correct. Once in the gate, your son or daughter can get warmed up by playing catch on the field. Parents are welcomed to be on the field during the warm up. Relax and enjoy. 

Where do we play? The Somersworth High School football field. Located directly in front of Somersworth High School.

What if it rains? If there is rain flag football and cheering will likely be cancelled. The latest information for SORO will be posted to our Facebook page (  Cancelled sessions will not be made up.

If my son / daughter misses a session because of a vacation is that okay?  Absolutely. It's expected that several of our players will be busy over their summer vacations.
