The  NAVY and ARMY (Pony, PW and INT) tiered system does not impact Registration.

Middle School Football League (MSFL) players should select Fall 2016 Middle School Sign-Up. 

We will place you on the appropriate team.


  • About Practice & Registration

  • New families to the RFL often ask about location and dates of practice.  This is a team specific issue.  All teams practice within the Rockville/Potomac/Bethesda area.  Please see Franchises for more information.  Schedules and game days are also outlined in this area.

  •  Returning Players are those that played in the RFL in the Fall of 2014 or Fall 2015 and siblings. Priority for Returning Players ends on June 1.

  • If you are a Returning Player and the team you played for last year or the team you are supposed to move up to is full there is now a Waiting List Option.  This also applies to New Players who request a team that is full.  We will place New Player on the Waiting List if they request a full team.

     If you choose to register and be placed on the Waiting List you will be notified by July 15 if there is room or another team has been established.  If there is still not room on your desired team you can
    1.   Request a refund (less the $25 processing fee),
    2.   Be placed on another team or
    3.   Stay on the Waiting List to see if a spot opens up (no refund with this option). 
    There is still a good chance you will make the roster if you are registering before June 1.


  • Medical Waivers

  • Waivers for medical reasons must be initiated by a letter from a physician stating the medical condition that requires the request.  Size and/or age in of itself will not qualify for a Waiver:  RFL MEDICAL WAIVER FORM 2016.pdf

  • Team Waivers

    RFL Waiver Forms must be submitted to apply for a player transfer from one team to another. Players must register for the team that they have played for in past years before applying for a waiver. All waiver forms must be submitted before June 15th.

    Waivers to move to a different team will only be approved if the General Managers of both organizations and the Commissioner agree or if a player was assigned to a team other than the one requested because it was full or merged into the previous season due to roster space. The waiver will then be submitted to the RFL Executive Committee for final approval. To have a Waiver considered you must first register for the team you are supposed to play on and then follow the instructions for submitting Waiver Requests.

    Instructions - Fill out the form below and email to the commissioner of the division you will be playing in for this season.  RFL TEAM WAIVER FORM 2016.pdf
