Safety

Top of the Line Equipment
Safety is of utmost importance in the DFL. In order to protect players and reduce the possibility of injury, all equipment is inspected and certified on an annual basis. All helmets are either new or factory reconditioned every year. The DFL is committed to providing equipment of a quality that is equal, if not superior, to high school football programs.

Personal Attention
The DFL makes every attempt to form teams between 15 and 18 players. This promotes maximum participation and allows the coaching staff to provide individual instruction when necessary. Every player is guaranteed a starting position for the entire game on either offense or defense providing they adhere to practice attendance and participation guidelines.

Excellent Coaching and Officiating
All coaches are screened prior to selection. Head coaches are trained and certified by USA Football. Each coach is trained on concussion prevention, and certified.  Each game is officiated by trained officials that are typically Jr. or Sr. High School certified officials.

Reasonable Cost
Sound financial management and the generosity of area businesses as sponsors have enabled the DFL to keep participation fees as low as possible while still promoting a safe, quality program.
