Fairmount Flag Football
After losing last season, we are excited to announce Fairmount Sports Association, Flag Football, will return this Fall!
Flag Football will be played/held at The Fairmount Sports Association home field, Von Colln Field! 2300 Pennsylvania Ave, Phila PA 19130. Same location as baseball/softball.
We need to ask for your help, the scope and success of this league will be determined by the number of volunteer coaches and referees we can count on. Each team needs two dedicated coaches at minimum and each game needs two referees. Volunteers in all these roles are needed. We’re happy to provide instruction and coaching materials to all volunteers. The commissioners will maintain equipment and the playing fields as well, but we may ask for coaches support at times.
Those interested should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are a few details about the forthcoming season:
- We’re hoping run two co-ed divisions again, this year offering an 8–10-year-old league and a 11–12-year-old league.
- This is a recreational league with the goals of teaching the kid’s sportsmanship, team play, and fundamental football.
- League play will be on Sundays between 9:00am and 12:00pm. Practices will be at the discretion of coaches.
- Cost per Child: $50
- Two Divisions (4 teams each division)
- Cap player registration at 40 players per division (80 total)
