Double-elimination, single day 5v5 flag football tournament with 20 min games from school-based teams of 6 classmates by grade (2nd to 8th) to raise money for local families in need and get the kids outside having some fun! Event plus food and drinks will be provided at no cost to each child.
Start recruiting teams – team registration opens soon! First come, first serve!!!
We recommend each Team come in 1 color / style shirt so that they can see their teammates easier on their field. We will NOT be providing game jerseys, but will have pennys/pullovers available in case one team that is wearing white is playing another team that is wearing white. Balls and flags will also be provided. Nothing else, so bring water bottles, mouth guards, cleats, etc. It’s your call on that stuff, again, no referees will be calling the penalties or parents coaching at kids – it’s most likely very similar to how they play football at school’s recess. Rules should follow the Flag rules posted on www.parkridgefootballandcheer.com
under Flag, but again, that’s for the kids to really figure out when they’re out there. We have asked the Park District to mark the 3 fields close to the dimensions we use in Flag in the Fall – 35 year width, 50 year length, 2 endzones, and a mid-line for 1 first down if before first 4 plays in a series.
This is a RAIN or SHINE competition and event.
If you have any questions or concerns at this point, please feel free to contact Mel Thillens
. Thank you for your support and let’s have a lot of FUN and raise a lot of MONEY for these local football and cheer families! Thank you for your support!!!
