Carrollton Boosters is excited to announce the upcoming flag football season this Fall!
COVID-19: Carrollton is continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation. We are working with the city, NORD, and Children’s Hospital to ensure that we open up as safely as possible in all our sports. Flag Football is a non-contact or low-contact sport. We will continue to watch and abide by the recommendations of the city and the state. While we plan on starting the week after Labor Day, that could change depending on the situation with the virus.
Flag Football is offered for children who are 5-13 years old as of April 30, 2020. The leagues will be defined similarly to the way they were defined for this past baseball season: 5-6 year olds, 7-8 year olds, 9-10 year olds, and 11-13 year olds. Teams will be co-ed, but are comprised of mostly boys.
Games will be played on Avenger Field (next to Children’s Hospital) on Saturdays for most leagues, and on Monday evenings for the 5/6 year old league. The program is designed to offer a low-effort (for parents) activity during the busy back-to-school months.
Players in the 7/8 and older leagues will be graded. Grading is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 1 on Avenger Field, as follows:
Players will be drafted onto teams and will be issued a team shirt at the first game. They should also wear dark shorts without pockets, and can wear either cleats or tennis shoes. No other equipment is required.
For more information, contact Commissioner Dom Carollo at [email protected]
or Assistant Commissioner Thomas Ogg at [email protected].
Register on line by logging in to your Carrollton registration account Login and following the procedure. The registration fee is $95 for your first child, $70 for each additional child. You may pay on line by credit card or you may choose the option to send a check, but note that your registration is not considered complete until fees are paid. Players who are not registered will not be graded or drafted onto teams.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Some leagues will inevitably fill up, so we urge you to register your children as soon as possible.
Please note that, while we will allow children to be registered for both soccer and flag football, there could be game conflicts between the two sports. As we get closer to forming teams and preparing schedules, we will be able to assist you in making an informed decision. Registration fees are fully refundable up until teams are drafted.
For registration or fee assistance, contact Alan Godchaux at [email protected].
Coaching is an excellent way to not only develop a greater appreciation for flag football, but to also form a special bond with your son or daughter as the season progresses. If you are interested in being a coach, simply answer “yes” to the question when registering, then also register yourself as a volunteer coach, and we will contact you.
When registering, please also consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our Capital Fund at "checkout". Contributions to this fund are used for continued additions and improvements to our fields and facilities.
PRE-SEASON SKILLS CLINIC
Carrollton is pleased to announce its second annual Flag Football Skills Clinic for players registering in the 5/6, 7/8, and 9/10 flag football leagues at Carrollton this fall. The clinic will be held on Saturday morning, August 29, from 8:30-10:00 for 5/6's, and from 10:00-12:00 for 7/8's and 9/10's, on Avenger Field. The clinic fee is $50 per player. Register on line by logging in to your Carrollton registration account Login and following the procedure.
Participants will work on improving their agility and skills while focusing on the fundamentals of the game on both sides of the ball, including a variety of core components of pass patterns, pass coverage, catching, blocking, deflagging (tackling), hand-offs and pitches.
Because there are limited opportunities to practice during the flag football season, this clinic is an excellent opportunity to prepare for league play.
The clinic will be run by past championship winning coaches for Carrollton Flag Football and by members of the Carrollton Select 12U team, and proceeds will benefit "Carrollton to Cooperstown 2021".
