SO RSVP EARLY IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND.

SANTA MONICA CO-ED

BEACH FLAG FOOTBALL

 

LOCATION:

We are located at the corner of NAVY STREET and OCEAN FRONT WALK. You cannot miss us if you walk up NAVY STREET towards the beach.  We are literally at the boarder of Venice Beach and Santa Monica beach at the very end of the Venice boardwalk where the street vendors stop.  Please do not get confused by other sports groups that may be setting up or playing along the boardwalk; we are at the VERY END of the Venice boardwalk.  You can use the address below and the map link above for mapping purposes.

100 Oceanfront Walk
Santa Monica, CA 90405


PARKING:

PAY PARKING: The easiest, nearest, and most abundant parking is located at the Santa Monica beach parking lots. The lot starts at KINNEY STREET and NEILSON WAY and continues NORTH for several blocks.  It only costs $1 per hour to park there, and it takes less than 6 minutes to walk from the parking lot to our game field.  The parking machines accept credit cards, change, and one dollar bills. To get to the game walk South on NEILSON WAY and then West on NAVY STREET down to OCEANFRONT WALK (and the beach).

FREE PARKING: There is free street parking wherever available, but the best place to find free parking is located at Marine and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th street. I park here EVERY game day for FREE. From here it is just a three minute walk to the game.  If you walk up Marine toward the ocean you will walk straight into our FOOTBALL FIELD.

There is also a great amount of FREE parking right around the GOLD’S GYM located at 360 HAMPTON DR., VENICE, CA 90291.  It is a 10 minute walk to our game field from Gold’s Gym.  To get to the game walk North on HAMPTON DRIVE, West on ROSE AVENUE down to OCEANFRONT WALK (and the beach), and then North on OCEANFRONT WALK to the end of the Venice boardwalk.

 

WHAT TO BRING:

Bring a good sportsman's attitude.

Bring sunscreen if needed.

Bring water, but we PROVIDE FREE ICE-COLD GATORADE AND ENERGY BARS FOR ALL ATTENDEES.

We also have a first aid kit on hand for minor injuries.


ADDITIONAL INFO:

THERE IS NO CHARGE TO MEMBERS FOR THIS MEETUP!!!!!

We will play rain or shine, unless it is unsafe.

Please RSVP as early as you are able.  This also encourages others to attend.

We all get busy and our schedules change, but please update your status to NOT GOING if you have already RSVPd, but later cannot attend.

IF YOU ARE ABLE, PLEASE ARRIVE ON THE FIELD A FEW MINUTES BEFORE 11:00 AM. YOU CAN ARRIVE A LITTLE EARLIER IF YOU WANT TO GET TO KNOW THE OTHER PLAYERS AND WARM UP BEFORE THE GAME.

This is a recreational non-contact game. You should make every attempt to avoid collisions with the opposing players. We are not professional players getting paid to take injurious hits.

Feel free to message me, Josh Grey, if you have any questions.  You can also add a question to the message board for the entire group to see.


BASIC RULES OF THE GAME:

We play a respectful and fun style of flag football with NO taunting or other aggressive behavior.  We are here to have fun and make new friends.  We genuinely welcome everyone, but if you have a bad temperament then you are probably better off playing somewhere else.

Play will start at the 5 yard line. Teams have 4 downs to reach the halfway point; then another 4 downs to reach the end zone.

The offense may rush at any time outside of 5 yards from the 1st down or end zone.

Females are required to handle the ball in the ratio (at least) equal to the number of women on the team. For example, if there are five players on a team including one female, then the female must throw, run, or attempt to catch a pass on at least 20% of the downs. This guarantees that all females are included in the offensive side of the game.

Men are worth 6 points when scoring a touchdown. To encourage the involvement of women in scoring plays, women are worth 9 points for catching, throwing, or running into the end zone.

Teams can go for 1, 2, or 3 points after a touchdown; 1 point from 5 yards out, 2 points from 10 yards out, and 3 points from 15 yards out.

The defense may rush after a 4 second digital timer count and may blitz 1 time every 4 downs.

WE PLAY NO CONTACT FLAG FOOTBALL! That means we do not allow tackling, pass interference, illegal contact, or contact blocking.

A tackling and/or pass interference call will be made anytime a player makes contact with another player primarily with his shoulder, elbow, or forearm.

An illegal contact call will be made if an offensive player attempts to use his/her body as a weapon against a defensive player.

We do not allow contact blocking, but players may screen block.  This means you are allowed to stand still in place to create an obstacle for the defense so long as the opposing players have time to adjust to your screen.

Penalties will be enforced for tackling, pass interference, illegal contact, and illegal blocking.

Both offense and defense can make foul calls.  All players should respect and not argue over each other’s calls.  An organizer will resolve any disputes.

You may review our detailed rules by clicking the “Pages” button.

 

PLEASE DON'T FORGET:

If you have RSVPd, but later can not attend, please change your status to NOT GOING.
Sunscreen & water are recommended.
Please be on time.  However, we do understand that this is sometimes difficult for those who are attending for the first time.  All players are still welcome if you are late.

    Since, as of right now, there are still so many others on the waiting list to play, I have decided to give up my spot on the waiting list so that someone else can have a better chance to play. I'm fine with that, so it's okay. Hope you guys all have fun out there. I may just come out and watch you anyway. :)

    I was a captain QB on my college Club team. Pretty spot on for passing 25yds & under, good at spreading the field out and getting all receivers some action. Got the wheels when needed, too.
