Registration deadline for Youth Flag Football League is July 31

July 11, 2017

Local youth are invited to participate in Bend Park and Recreation District’s Youth Flag Football League this fall.  The league is open to boys and girls entering 1st through 6th grade in the upcoming 2017-18 school year. The season runs from Sept. 5 through Nov. 5.

“Focusing on the fun and excitement of football, the league promotes physical fitness and teaches players sportsmanship lessons about teamwork and fair play as well as basic football fundamentals and game play,” said Rich Ekman, sports program coordinator.

Teams practice twice a week and play games on Sundays. Registrations made before July 24 offer a discounted fee of $65 for in-district residents and $78 for out-of-district residents.

After July 24, registration fees are $75 in-district and $88 out-of-district. Participants can register online at www.bendparksandrec.org.

In addition, the league offers opportunities for adults as volunteer coaches. Providing support with program logistics, coaching and mentoring youth, volunteer coaches must pass a background check, enjoy working with youth and be able to create a positive, encouraging recreational environment for all players.
