Our flag program is Open to all 5 and 6 year olds, boys and girls, must turn 5 by 12/21/2017. Our program is designed for players to learn the great game of football while beginning to develop their fundamental football skills. A high level of focus is placed on learning fundamentals, having fun and beginning to PLAY THE GAME of football. Every player will have multiple opportunities to play all of the positions on offense and defense to ensure a well-rounded introduction to the game of football. The cost of this program is $25.
Practice schedules will be decided by the COACHES, but they are not to exceed 3 hours of combined practice hours per week. Practices are scheduled to begin the week of August 10th at Cardinal Field. You will be contacted by your coach with further information and instructions the week prior to the practice season beginning.
Flag games will take place once per week at a designated field. Games will be played on weekday evenings beginning in early September depending on field availability. Games may be added for some Saturdays, also depending on field availability. Your Commissioner may decide to have in-house games (only Crofton players) or games with select Flag programs within the County. In years past, we've done both and the kids have enjoyed the experience either way.
All players will receive a t-shirt and/or pinnies with the registration fee. Additional CFC shorts will be available for purchase at equipment handout.
Cleats and mouthpieces are highly recommended, but not required.
