2018 League Info:  Beginning Saturday, September 8th, co-ed teams from recreation centers, schools, and neighborhoods all across the city, will compete in our traditional youth flag football league at Potrero Hill Rec Center (801 Arkansas Street). We’ll have two separate divisions based on age: Pee-Wee (8-10 Years) and Senior (11-13 Years). The Pee Wee Division will play 7-on-7 and teams have the option to run or pass on offense. For the Senior Division, the games will be 5-on-5 and teams are only allowed to run once for every four downs.

Registration for Rec & Park Teams:  If you’d like to register your child to play for a Rec & Park team, please visit our website, sfrecpark.org/register, and select the Activity # associated with whichever Rec Center and/or day works best for you. Registration will open on August 4th, 2018.  A member of our staff will coach the team and run your weekly practice beginning the week of September 3rd.


Registration for Independent Teams:  If you’d like to enter a team of your own, with at least 8 players, please contact our League Commissioner, Joachim Perlas at joachim.perlas@sfgov.org or 415-695-5009. If you don’t already have a practice location through your school or some other means, you’ll need to contact our Permits & Reservations Department to formally reserve a field.
