2017 Flag Football Fundamentals (7-8 year olds) Registration is Now Open

Once again we are offering our Flag Football Fundamentals program for 7 and 8 year olds. 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 a.m. or 10 a.m. and held at Van Voorhees Park (Columbia Street and Atlantic Ave).

We are offering eight sessions (weather permitting) beginning September 9 through November 4. (No sessions on the Saturday of Columbus Day Weekend). Players enrolled in the flag football fundamentals sessions need not be evaluated.

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. The registration fee is $185. On-time registration ends July 17, 2017. If you register after July 10, 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 July 10.

* Mouth guards and pocketless pants/shorts are required for all Flag Football programs.

Any questions concerning the program can be sent to

See you on the field!
