SPRING FLAG FOOTBALL 7v7 MINI LEAGUE: 3rd-8th Grade
Keep your Mondays and Wednesdays open for some spring football! A general youth sports jersey is mandatory and can be purchased at the CARD Office for $17. All players must provide and wear a mouthguard at practices and games. Mini Leagues will feature a 5-game guarantee for each team (no end-of-season tournament), and one practice a week during the season.
Mini-league teams will be loosely based on grade and a skills evaluation (not by school). We anticipate grades will be combined based on the total number of participants that register. Genders will be combined for flag football. All teams will be formed at the discretion of CARD staff and skills evaluations.
Registration availability in all leagues is limited based on the number of staff/volunteers that are available and facility space. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
