The Park Ridge Football program provides an opportunity for young men and women to be a youth football referee for our flag football games. Football officiating can provide a person with a sense of pride, self-respect, and most importantly, confidence.
Park Ridge Football will provide a referee shirt, flag, whistle, and the initial instruction necessary to officiate a football game at our mandatory meeting in July. It is the responsibility of each individual to know and understand the rules of the game, and to commit to improving their skills.
7th graders – Associate Referees – for Little Demons Flag Division
