After a successful launch last year, the South Miami Youth Flag Football League will begin its second spring season starting May 15 and run through June 30 at two South Miami locations, Palmer Park and South Miami Park.
Organizers and coaches Stuart J. McGregor and Omar Diaz are looking forward to it and are working hard for the new season.
“We were really happy about our first year and this year looks like it’s going to be even better,” said Stuart J. McGregor. “The word spread and the parents seem to be really happy with the program. Our objective is to make sure that kids have fun and learn to play football.”
Registration is still open but will likely close by April 30. The youth league is for boys and girls, ages 5 to 16. A fun and exciting sport, SMFFL is an NFL FLAG Football program that focuses on players having fun while learning teamwork and the rudimentary elements of football in a non-contact, non-competitive environment.
Launched nationally in 1996, the NFL FLAG Football program teaches skills and lessons that help kids succeed both on and off the field. It’s a fun game of quickness and agility with minimal physical contact.
Enrolling one child is $140 and additional family members are $120. The fees include NFL Flag jerseys and flags that participants may keep, as well as covering 10 regular season games, playoff and All Star games, trophies and certificate.
