Youth flag football league now accepting players
The Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department is accepting players for the NFL Youth Flag Football League until team rosters are full. NFL Flag Football teaches boys and girls the fundamentals of football, good sportsmanship, and teamwork in a fun, less-competitive, non-contact way. Every player is eligible to receive or carry the ball and any player on a team could score on any play. Players receive a reversible NFL Flag jersey, mouthpiece, and individual award. All games will be played on Saturdays at Stodick Park.
Participants will be divided into four age groups, 5-6 coed, 7-8 coed, 9-11coed, and 12-14 coed. Players must be at least 6 and younger than 15 by Sept. 1. Coaches will randomly choose teams through a draft system. Registration costs $75-$80, depending on age, and the player draft will be held Aug. 14-15. The deadline for prospective coaches is Aug. 9.
