Since I registered online, does my son have to attend a combine?

Yes, all new and going into the draft registrants are required to complete a combine.  Registration is not complete until these items are completed. If the registrant does not complete a combine, that registrant will be designated as a “hat pick” at the draft.

Can my child pick a different team to play on for the upcoming season?

Participants who do not wish to return to their previous team shall designate that on the registration form and football players must attend a combine to be placed in the draft pool.  Football Players/Parents may NOT choose who they will play for in the upcoming season.

If I register late or move in from out of town can I still be placed on a team?

Cleburne Football League may compile a waiting list of players who would like to play in our league, but for some reason have missed registration.  These players are placed on teams based on number of players participating.  For example, if there are 10 teams and 9 of those teams have 19 players and 1 team has 18 players we would have 1 spot available for a waiting list player.  Waiting list players are not guaranteed spots on rosters until they are assigned by the Board.  The waiting list is first come first serve and will be closed prior to the completion of the 1st game of the season.

What if my child does not want to play for the team he/she was drafted by?

Players can not choose who they play for.  If you do not want to play for a team a refund may be given per policy guidelines
