Sign-Ups Open for Flag Football League
Time is running out! The Yukon Parks and Recreation Department sign-ups for Youth Flag Football ends July 31.
The co-ed league is open to boys and girls ages 5 to 12. Age is determined as of August 1, 2017.
The league consists of a preseason scrimmage and eight league games. Most teams 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 will be played at Sunrise Park.
“Moving to Sunrise Park is very exciting. We will be able to have two fields, 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,” said Tim Rhodes, League Coordinator.
Registration is $60 for Yukon residents and $70 for Non-Residents. Player uniforms are 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.
