2017 SFRPD Flag Football League
Congratulations to all players, coaches and teams that participated in the 2016 season! Welcome back to those of you returning this fall…and welcome to all new newcomers! Thanks so much for all your support of young athletes in San Francisco!
League Info: Beginning Saturday, September 9th, 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 will have the option to run or pass on offense. For the Senior Division, the games will be 5-on-5 and teams will only be 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. A member of our staff will coach the team and run your weekly practice beginning the week of September 4th.
Pee-Wee: Herz (#10943), Palega (#10944) & Upper Noe (#10949).
Senior: Sunset (#10950), St. Mary’s (#10952), Youngblood Coleman (#10954), Upper Noe (#10953),
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 email@example.com or 415-695-5009.
