NFL YOUTH FLAG FOOTBALL

(May 28 July 12)

The City of Bluefield Parks and Recreation is now an official NFL Flag Football League. This is a great way to enjoy the sport of football without the contact leading up to tackle football. There will be set "teams" in this league just like in youth basketball. To start, coaches will usually run them through some drills or some stretches in practices. After that, team schedules will be released and teams will play throughout the summer months.There will be opportunities for teams to create All-Star teams to compete in regional tournaments at the Carolina Panthers and Washington Redskins facilities. Make sure you reserve your spot! Sign up for our NFL-sanctioned Youth Flag Football now!
