MEREDITH — Registration for the Fall 2013 Season of the Lakes Region Flag Football League (LRFFL) is underway.
The LRFFL is a National Football League affiliated youth flag football league and 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; ages 6-8; ages 9-11; ages 12-14 and ages 15-17. All divisions are co-ed.
Sign up is easy and only available online and can be done right from the comfort of your own home at your convenience. Sign-up at: lrffl.com
Flag football is played 5-on-5 and requires no helmets, and no equipment is needed as this is a non-contact sport. Offensive players are considered "tackled" when a defender pulls the flag off of the ball carriers flag belt. We teach our players the ability and the responsibility to avoid all contact, which makes them quick, agile, and elusive. NFL Flag Football offers great fun and teamwork, and all players on offense have the opportunity to touch the ball on any given play.
The LRFFL's mission is to provide a safe and enjoyable youth sports experience for all players and their families regardless of skill level.
The Registration fee for the Fall 2013 season is $60 before August 5; $65 from August 6 until September 4. The fee covers all expenses for the season, and each player will receive an NFL Flag reversible team jersey and a set of NFL Flags to keep. Credit card payments are accepted online, and checks are also accepted.
Practices are one hour per week, typically on Wednesday nights, and games in the fall are played on Sunday afternoons at the Inter-Lakes High School turf field in Meredith.
