We are a not-for-profit youth tackle football organization which provides a structured environment to encourage and develop local youth through athletic competition. Participants are provided opportunity to become stronger more self reliant members of their community while learning the fundamentals of football and teamwork. DFL unequivocally welcomes boys and girls from all walks of life to come together and compete. Players must meet age requirements and be from the surrounding community: either a student within SAU 11 or in close proximity whereby the local ischool district does not have a program for that athlete to participate in. Not sure if your child meets any of the requirements? Explore the site and if you still have questions feel free to drop us a line on the FEEDBACK tab on the left hand menu bar.
Please Note: Merrimack graciously agreed to swap the previously scheduled 3pm game in order to accomodate some strongly persuasive parent's request to ensure that our young'uns didn't have to miss yet another All Hallows Eve of scaring the candy out of the neighbors. If you get the opportunity please show them some respect and thank them for this gesture.
SENIOR DIV REGULAR SEASON
This Saturday, October 30th @ 6pm
Dover "Little Green" vs. Exeter Seahawks
Dunaway Field, Dover High School
This Saturday at the game some of our parents do not want the little ones to miss out on the Halloween experience and are throwing a costume contest with a few small prizes to hand out for best costumes adult & children. There will be candy.
As a reminder we are still looking for people to sign up for various positions to help out during the game!
Our fan favorite, the event that puts the FUN in fundraising is finally here.
Saturday, November 6th
Games Start @ 3pm
Bring Cash * Arrive Early
American Legion Post 8
640 Central Ave.
Dover, NH 03820
In addition to the bingo there will be a few tables full of excellent raffle prizes graciously donated by our supporters. There will also be a 50/50 raffle that previously generated a generous split for the winner and for DFL.
You do not have to be a member of DFL to participate. Bring a friend or two. The usual patrons of the club are the friendliest and most generous hosts we could ask for. This is definitely an adult event so find the kiddos a sitter or some commercial grade duct tape and come win some prizes. I am formally calling dibs on the Prime Rib this year so please try not to swipe my set of winning cards before I get to the table, thanks.
The Broken Record
formerly the volunteer section
Please, if you like what you have seen from the program this past season and you would like to see it grow even bigger, then consider stepping up in some way, shape, or fashion. "Many hands lighten the load" is the perfect expression when I think of how fine tuned this organization can become. You do not have to know that much about football in order to step up and become a committee manager, or board member. If you believe in something greater than yourself, as we try and teach our players, then sharing the workload will help to reach and potentially exceed the goals of our program. There was a time when this football program was an in-house league; meaning that we had enough players to from several teams that played each other locally for an entire season. It would be nice to approach those numbers at some point and be a part of a great tradition of team building and forging friendships amongst our children as we make a community out of common goals with neighbors.
We are still in the market for the following poitions/committees:
Concessions (works best as a committee)
Treasurer (Board Position), this comes with help & training. We have a professional to continue working the finances but would be separate from the decision making process of the board.
All-Around - Just want to pitch in here and there, throw your name and contact info at us. Eventually this position turns into something with much more responsibility and tasking if history has taught us anything at all.
Thanks again to all who have been stepping up even if for brief tasks. A small amount goes a long way to freeing up time for other matters.
