There are no minimum play time requirements as is the case in the MMFA (fair play rule). Playing time is up to the discretion of the coaches and may be subject to a number of factors such as experience, ability, attendance, etc. However, the Mustang program plays all players during the course of the season.
Players specialize in positions, either on offence or defence. However, there is the flexibility to play more than one position during the season and individual games.
Mustang players are provided with a helmet, shoulder pads, game jersey, football pants, etc. as part of the registration fees.
Other equipment items are required and are not included in the registration costs. These items are relatively minor and will be discussed prior/during equipment fitting sessions.
