Twelve flag bears are needed, all of whom must be 11 years or older.

Twenty-two player escorts are needed, all of whom must be between the ages of five and eight.

Flag bearers and escorts will need tickets to the game.

The clinic is for players between the ages of 6 and 10 years old. Players need to arrive two-and-a-half hours before kickoff with shine pads, cleats and a club uniform.
