Published DateMEREDITH -- The Lakes Region Flag Football League will hold a demonstration of the sport on Saturday between 1 and 4 p.m. at the Inter-Lakes High School field.
The session is designed to give potential players an opportunity to see what contact flag football is like.
Those who attend the demonstration event are under no obligation to join the league, and there is no cost to participate.
Saturday's demonstration is subject to weather. Weather updates will be posted on the league's website: www.lrffl.com/home.php
The LRFFL is open to all boys and girls in the Lakes Region area between the ages of 4-17, with 5 age divisions: ages 4-6; 6-8; 9-11; 12-14; and new this season ages 15-17. All age divisions are co-ed teams.
The LRFFL follow NFL Flag rules, which organizers say can be a great introduction to football for those players who want to learn the sport before they learn to hit. We offer a five-on-five non-contact flag football league and player instructions. Team size of eight players means all play. The Lakes Region league sees its mission to provide a safe and enjoyable youth sports experience for all players and their families regardless of skill level. We emphasize positive coaching, and we work to foster an environment where all children are given the opportunity to succeed.
