Final Flag Football Evaluation: Saturday, September 6, 11 a.m. at Van Voorhees

The 2014 78PYC Flag Football season will soon be here! Teams are created at a draft in our attempt to balance the teams. All players who did not play in the league last season MUST be evaluated. Those who played in our league last year are welcome to be evaluated but are not required as we have the coach evaluations from last year. (Those who attended our Flag Football Fundamentals clinics last season MUST also be evaluated.)

Players on the waitlist should attend the evaluation, however, attending the evaluation does not guarantee placement on a team.

The final Flag Football evaluation is scheduled for:

Saturday, September 6, starting at 11 a.m. (arrive no later than 12:30 p.m.) at Van Voorhees field.

A Flag Football quarterback clinic will follow the evaluation at 1 p.m. All Flag Football registrants interested in playing quarterback this season are encouraged to attend this clinic.

Please check our homepage and/or the 78PYC Hotline — (877) 407-7878 — the day of the evaluation for confirmation that the evaluation will take place as scheduled.

Once again we are offering our Flag Football Fundamentals Program for 7 and 8 year olds (no older than 8 as of September 15, 2014). Run by professional trainers who have significant experience working with youth, our program teaches all the fundamentals of football so that players will be ready to compete in our flag football league, which starts at the age of nine.

The sessions are 50 minutes long on Saturdays starting at either 9 AM or 10 AM on the artificial turf field at Van Voorhees field (corner of Atlantic Avenue and Columbia Street near Brooklyn Bridge Park).

We are offering eight sessions (weather permitting) beginning September 13 through November 8. (No sessions on the Saturday of Columbus Day Weekend.)

Our program teaches the fundamentals of football (passing, receiving, flag-pulling, running patterns) with fun drills and games. Our focus is to develop basic skills in a safe environment. The season culminates in modified game play.

To register go to your account in our registration system.  If you don’t have an account, simply create one. The registration fee is $175. On time registration ends June 30, 2014. If you register after June 30, you will be charged a non-refundable late fee of $35 with no guarantee of placement. Each hour there are two groups of 12 and they fill quickly. Once filled, the program will close even if it is before June 30.

Any questions concerning the program can be addressed to Flag Football using our contact form.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you on the field.

Kings Academy Fall Basketball Clinics for 5-8 year olds (Sessions run from September 20 through November 23) – Registration is open, first come, first served, they fill quickly. Late registration fees go into effect September 8.

Does your child want to improve his/her skills on the court? Join our fall Kings Academy basketball clinic for boys and girls ages 5-8 yo. Run by professional trainers and Kings travel coaches, there will be eight 55 minute sessions beginning September 20 and ending November 23.

Clinics are co-ed and there are sessions for 5 & 6 year olds and sessions for 7 & 8 year olds. Clinics will be held at PS 321 and PS 11. There will also be an advanced level clinic for 7 & 8 year old players.

Using fun games, the sessions will teach skills that apply to all athletic endeavors – balance, weight transfer, gross motor movements, flexibility, and more, and then shown their specific application to basketball. The games will turn to basketball-specific actions.

In the mix we will add the fundamentals of building strength, conditioning, a proper diet to attain the body’s proper chemical balances and to avoid obesity, and teach them how to gain mental control. It is our goal to jump start all our players onto a smart path toward physical competency and confidence.

The advanced clinic for 7 & 8 yos is an hour and twenty minute program that will provide an accelerated experience preparing your child for team play. Participation in a Kings Academy clinic within the past 12 months is required for this program. There will be a mandatory evaluation held on Saturday, September 13 from 4-6 p.m. at PS 321. A child registered for this program who is not accepted will be moved to one of the basic clinics. An email with evaluation results will be sent by September 16 and instructions on how to choose another slot on a first come, first served basis for those not accepted. A credit for the difference will be issued if your child is moved to a basic clinic. No refunds will be issued so please review the other sessions below carefully.

Fee: $170 for the basic clinics, $225 for the advanced 7 & 8 year old clinics.

Introduction to the new website and registration system

Welcome to our new website!

We hope you like it. It reflects the success of our programs, which have grown as a result of your support and the participation of your children. Thank you very much!

We hope it will make your interaction with us more convenient, effective, and fun for your children. Much of the structure and content should be familiar, but a great deal has been added:

  • Drop down menus mean fewer steps to access information
  • Expandable text highlights key information and allows you to read more on topics of interest to you by clicking on the headline
  • A search box that accesses the text on every page and in every PDF
  • Many more pictures and videos
  • More complete explanations of our programs in each About page
  • An easy to access and understand FAQ page
  • A simple contact form for emailing us
  • Social media icons on many pages to quickly share information about our programs, events, camp, and clinics with your friends
  • Easy access to the website from PCs, Macs, tablets, and mobile devices
  • An online application for our intern program
  • Google map links to fields and gyms
  • And more…

The new registration system has been up and running for a few weeks now. The old registration system has been retired by the vendor. To date we have had over 1,500 registrations in the new system! We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we continue our transition to the new system. You can access the new registration system from the top menu under the Register/Pay menu item.
