Our fall youth flag football league is designed to develop skills and an understanding of the game that will lead to a lifelong enjoyment of the game of football in a SAFE, structured and inclusive setting. In this program, children will be taught proper techniques and game strategies, will improve and build upon those techniques in weekly practices, and will be given an opportunity to showcase their new abilities in scheduled league games that are centered on positive encouragement, inclusion and sportsmanship.
Registered children will practice once per week, and participate in a 6 game season. Children will receive a team t-shirt, and all game equipment will be provided! Put your game face on, and Let’s Play!
