Register for Pasco team that plays offseason full-tackle football

The Pasco County team that participates in the Florida Youth Spring Football League is taking registrations for the 2009 season. Registrations will be held at Creative Printing, 3901 Land O'Lakes Blvd., on Saturday and March 21 from noon to 2:30 p.m.

The league is dedicated to giving boys a chance to compete in a full-tackle football league during the offseason from March 28 through May. The league is composed of six conferences in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties with possible conferences starting up in Deland, Orlando, Daytona Beach and Jacksonville. Teams play eight-on-eight with four to six teams in each division.

Each team will play seven regular season games on Saturdays in the conference's specific county. All teams are independently registered and coaches from all areas are encouraged to enter their own teams and participate in the division of their choice. The league also registers players independently, and allocates them to open teams based on geographic residence.
