Our Flag Football program is for boys and girls ages 5-6 with the possibility of a 7-8 yr. old group as well, based on response to registration. The program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork.  Flag football is a growing alternative to full contact football that teaches basic skills and concepts of the game. Our program is designed to introduce young athletes to the game while providing a safe environment to grow in the sport.
This is a recreational, non-competitive program.  We do NOT keep score. And we stress equal participation for all participants.

Our flag and tackle football teams will be attending the Lakeland Football Game-day at a
University of Memphis football game on Saturday, November 10 at 6pm. Tickets will be $15 each for players, parents, family, etc. The kids will wear their jerseys and get a chance to go onto the field after the game to throw around and have team photos.
Information on how to purchase tickets will be posted when available. 

Our
Tackle Football age divisions (7-8 & 9-10) will be participating in the Municipal Football League (MFL).
The MFL is a recreational program designed for all children to participate.
