Deadline for Yukon Flag Football is July 31
Time is running out! Sign-ups for Yukon Parks and Recreation’s Youth Flag Football league ends July 31.
The co-ed league is open to boys and girls ages 5 to 12 years of age. Age is determined as of August 1, 2017. The league consists of a preseason scrimmage and eight league games. Most teams will have one game and one practice a week. Games and/or practices may be held on Monday, Tuesday and/or Thursday. Saturdays may also be used for makeup games, if needed.
New this year, games are played at Sunrise Park.
“Moving to Sunrise Park is very exciting,” said Tim Rhodes, league coordinator. “We will be able to have two fields, we will have a concession stand, as well as more parking. Overall, it is going to be great for the league. Spectators and players will notice a big difference.”
Registration for the league is $60 for Yukon residents and $70 for Non-Residents. Player uniforms will be replica reversible NFL jerseys. Registration ends at 6:00 p.m. on July 31, or when the league fills up.
Volunteer coaches are always needed. For more information, please call the Jackie Cooper Gym at 350-8920.
