Greetings Flag Football Fans,
We are excited to be kicking off another season of the 78th Precinct Youth Council Flag Football Recreational League this fall.
In our co-ed recreational league, we will be creating teams from ages 9 to 16 (players age on 9/15/17). There are four divisions:
NFC: 9-10 years old
AFC: 11-12 years old
NFL: 13-14 years old
XFL: 15-16 years old
As in years past, in an effort to balance the teams, we evaluate players before the start of the season and build teams through a draft – where and when will be announced by email and posted on our site. It is a condition of registering that ALL PLAYERS, including those who have played with us before, be evaluated; those not evaluated will not be placed on a team and will not be entitled to a refund.
To register, go to your account in our registration system. The fee is $220.
On-time registration ends July 17, 2017. Thereafter a late fee of $35 will be charged and there will be no guarantee of placement on a team.
The season will begin September 16 and run through the weekend before Thanksgiving in November. No games will be played Friday, September 29 – Saturday, September 30. Moreover, we will schedule games during Columbus Day Weekend (October 6 – October 8) and Veterans Day Weekend (November 10 – November 12).
All games will be played on the weekends on artificial turf fields – at Van Voorhees field, Washington Park and Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Until schedules are created we cannot say which divisions will play where. Older divisions may have games Friday nights.
* Mouth guards and pocketless pants/shorts are required for all players competing in our flag football program.
Any questions concerning the program can be sent to email@example.com.
See you on the fields.
Flag Football Commissioner
