I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!

American Football Federation of Costa Rica (FEFACR) 2013 National Championship Calendar KICKOFF

FEFACR National Championship Calendar KICKOFF

As the NFL calendar season comes to an end with Super Bowl XLVII on February 3rd, the 2013 National Championship calendar season of the

American Football Federation of Costa Rica (FEFACR)

will have just kicked off. The league is entering into its 5th season as an organized sport, recognized by the Costa Rican Sports & Recreation Association (ICODER) and the International Federation of American Football (IFAF).

The 2013 FEFACR National Championship 12 week calendar season kickoff is at 2pm on Saturday, February 2nd with the 2 Cartago teams the Raptors vs Dragons going head to head. Don’t miss the feature game at 6pm when the 2012 FEFACR National Championship finalists, three-peat National Champions, the Santa Ana Bulldogs, take to the grid with their notorious arch-rival team, the Toros, who are certain to show the Bulldogs their competitive vindication. As always, an exciting match-up of teams to watch.

This new year welcomes an influx of Costa Rican players to the American football teams, once considered a Gringo dominant sport in Costa Rica no longer holds true. The teams are mostly comprised of Costa Ricans proudly sporting their respective team jerseys. As well, fans can catch the athleticism of the newest edition to the league, the U-19 Division. Most of these players have progressed to the Minor league through the FEFACR youth flag football teams that were first established three years ago, the Titans Juniors representing Alajuela/Heredia/San Jose and the Dragons Juniors representing Cartago.

During the second half of 2012 the FEFACR 1st Division league saw a shake-up of teams, with teams forming and teams folding. The five teams that have emerged for the 2013 National Championship calendar season are as follows in first name alphabetical order:

Cartago F.A. RAPTORS

DRAGONS F.A. Cartago
Santa Ana BULLDOGS Football
Santo Domingo SAINTS
TOROS Football Club

The FEFACR league plays by the NCAA Rules & Interpretations and games are refereed by members of the Costa Rican American Football Referee Association (AAFAC). Annually, the association welcomes new referees as the number of tournaments hosted each year in Costa Rica continues to rise.

President, Paolo Vincenzi of FEFACR stated that during this National Championship calendar season fans can expect to be entertained with the half-time performance of a cheerleader squad. Fans can participate in the half-time ability kicking and throwing competitions, to win sponsor donated prizes.

Cuty Monge Stadium (Olympia Village) in Desamparados, San Jose, will once again be the host stadium for the 2013 National Championship calendar season with two games per Saturday (except Semana Santa), a 2:00 pm day game and a 6:00 pm night game.

And of course, as always in Costa Rica. . . . fans plan for rain!
