Youth Flag Football League taking registrations

By Staff | Dec 10, 2018

Sanibel Sports is signing up children for the 2019 Youth Flag Football League.

The goal of the league is to provide players the skills necessary to learn the game, along with encouraging teamwork and good sportsmanship. All of the divisions are co-ed and are not overly competitive. Typically, each team will practice once per week, with weekly games on Fridays.

The games are held in the evenings at the Sanibel Recreation Center fields.

For the 2019 season, the age divisions are as follows:

– Developmental (kindergarten and first-grade first-timers)

– Grades 1-3

– Grades 4-6

– Grades 6-8

Registration is open through Dec. 28; the teams will be formed by Jan. 4.

The fee is $75 per player, and $70 for each additional player in the family. The fee for the Developmental division is $29 and requires high parental involvement.

Fees cover the costs of uniforms, insurance, city fees, team photographs, and awards.

Parents who feel their child needs to play up one age level due to their skill level or maturity can contact Tim Drobnyk with Sanibel Sports at 239-281-3530 or tim@onislandsanibel.com.
