Here’s a message for new BCS President John Forbes:

Coaches/Parents/Players:

I wanted to inform you all of the results of the debate and subsequent vote regarding the future of how BCS will conduct team formation in the future.

It was vigorously and thoroughly debated in a respectful manner for many weeks (years, actually!) and I can say that both sides of this issue have valid and respectable arguments for why each of the two systems of forming teams has merit.

We are fully confident that we’ve found a compromise that will satisfy both sides of this issue. This is a complex issue where compromise was needed here.

The board voted to do the following for the next year and for as long as the board feels satisfied with the results. The BCS board reserves the right to revisit the issue at any time for further review in deference to changing circumstances.

Fall 2017
– D6 and D7: DRAFT
– D8-D12: Traditional BCS format (Coaches form teams and league distributes free agents and forms new teams as needed)

Spring 2018
– Future Stars – League forms teams in modified draft system (Various factors considered, including school affiliation, geography, friendships and talent parity)
– D6-D12 – DRAFT

Thanks to everyone who expressed their opinion on the issue. Now lets all come together and get on with playing some football!!

PS. Registration is OPEN right now, so get on it and register your players!

On behalf of my family, I just wanted to reach out to “EVERYONE” and extend a total heartfelt Thank You!! We really appreciate ALL the love and support from the BCS regarding the loss of my children’s loving father, Joe Gealon. Akea wouldn’t be where he is now without his dad and this organization.  Thanks again to everyone for helping us out.
Many hugs, Mahalo, and God Bless…

Best, Riscilla Christensen, Akea’s mom

We are excited to announce a new partnership with RockSolid. RockSolid was created by former NFL players to improve the safety of non-contact football. Over 30,000 flag football players from all over the country are now sporting their soft-shell helmets.

The signature RS2 soft-shell helmet from RockSolid reduces the impact of hits by 52%. Go to liverocksolid.com/features to learn more about the technology that makes it work.

Let’s have even more fun this year as each player gets to look like a pro in their RockSolid gear. We appreciate you taking part with us!

Get your helmet at a discounted league rate through this ordering page: https://www.liverocksolid.com/store/beachcitiessports/

Thanks to all 234 kids that came. And an even bigger thank you to our volunteers who came to help us out! We were a bit overwhelmed by the attendance, so we appreciated everyone’s patience. We have tabulated the results as best we can, and we apologize in advance for any misspellings or typos – handwriting skills seem to be a bit lacking in our volunteers. Maybe next year we can go digital!

To calculate overall winners, kids received 3 points for first, 2 for second, and 1 for third for placing in the top three of the following events: 40 Yard Dash, Passing for Distance, Shuttle Run, Standing Broad Jump, Vertical Jump. In the event of a tie, we took the higher score from the Flag Pulling Drill. We didn’t have a separate Girls division since only four girls showed up, and each rated very highly in their respective divisions. Kudos to Kate Grzesek, Paige Gilmer, Mary Foster & Aeryl Lytal!

Check out this great article on the day from The Easy Reader, including pictures! Here’s another from The Beach Reporter – with some more great photos.

You can download the results spreadsheet – which is sortable by Name, Division, Grade, Events, etc. to see how your child matched up!  Spring17_Combine_Results
