Youth Flag Football 

DUE TO CURRENT CONDITIONS WE HAVE ADJUSTED THE AGE GROUP FOR FLAG FOOTBALL TO 7-9 YEAR OLDS.  THIS IS FOR THIS YEAR ONLY.

All dates are subject to change at any time with the ongoing COVID-19 situation

The Optimist Flag program has seven guiding principles: Make it fun, limit standing around, everyone plays, teach every position to every participant, emphasize the fundamentals, incorporate a progression of skill development for every participant, and yell encouragement
and whisper constructive criticism. Teams will consist of a maximum of 10 players with 5 players on the field at one time. Games will consist of 40 minutes running time and will be held Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. Participants must be 7 years old as of August 31 and have turned 9 years old by August 31.

Flag season will begin tentatively the second week in September 

There will be an evaluation scheduled prior to the season.  It is mandatory for all flag players to attend.

The games will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights at Cannon Park in Pinehurst.

 

There are no restrictions other than age for this league

FINANCIAL AID MAY BE AVAILABLE FOR THOSE THAT QUALIFY

FEES WILL INCLUDE THE USE OF A GAME JERSEY
