This Co-Ed league is a recreational flag football league for grades K – 6th. Volunteer coaches (mainly parents) will work with youth on developing their football skills, including catching, throwing, quickness, coordination, balance, reactions, etc. Youth will learn good practice techniques and develop interpersonal and teamwork skills. We will also provide weekly devotions and verses for the kids to give them an opportunity to hear about Jesus. The league will take place at Jackson Friends Church and will run August 31st – October 23rd, 2021. It will include eight practices and seven games.
Evaluations: Thursday, August 19th and Tuesday, August 24th from 5:30pm-7:00pm
Practices: Once a week on Tuesdays or Thursdays
Rosters and game schedules will be announced by Thursday evening, August 26th.

Registration deadline is Tuesday, August 24th!
This Co-Ed youth flag football league will take place at Jackson Friends Church for grades K – 6th. The league will run August 31st – October 23rd and will include eight practices and seven games. This is one less game and practice than previous seasons, which is reflected in the lower cost of $70. Included in the registration fee is a T-shirt, pizza night at the last practice, and an end of year gift at the last game! For those that need a new jersey, the cost is $15. Our soccer and flag football jerseys are the same, so you can reuse them year to year for either sport.
WE ALWAYS NEED COACHES, so if you are a parent or you have a passion for kids and football (and an hour to spare on a week day and Saturday), please volunteer. We will give you everything you need for coaching and devotions. $10 coupon off of a future registration for coaching!
The league will have practices once a week on Tuesday or Thursday at 5:15 PM OR 6:05 PM depending on your team. Practices are 50 minutes long, followed by a short devotion. Games are on Saturdays in the late mornings/early afternoons. All practices and games will be held at Jackson Friends Church, outside on our fields. We will do our best to keep all practices and games outdoor, but in severe weather we may move practices/games indoors OR we might have to reschedule a game/ cancel a practice.
The league will be split up into three divisions (if need be, we may move division ages around a bit):
K – 1st Grade 2nd – 3rd Grade 4th – 6th Grade
There will be two evaluation offerings before the season starts, so we can split the teams up evenly. Youth must attend ONE evaluation night. If you have conflicts with these evaluation dates, contact Joel Bankert to let him know and they will still be able to play. Evaluation opportunities will be Thursday, August 19th, 5:30 – 7:00 pm, and Tuesday August 24th, 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Rosters and Practice/Game Schedule will be announced by Thursday evening, August 26th. Youth may come at any time during either of these dates, 5:30 – 7:00 pm (ex. – one kid could show up at 5:50 pm and another shows up at 6:45 pm). The evaluation process only takes about 10 – 15 minutes. We will plan on doing evaluations outside, unless we have bad weather, in which case they will be indoors. You will get an email if we have any weather issues.
