Congratulations to our 2019 Champions – the Miraloma Spartans and Upper Noe East Eagles!!  Thanks so much to ALL of the players, parents, coaches, referees, and staff for making it happen each Saturday!!

Best of luck to our 8th Graders as they move on to high school next season!  We’ll look forward to seeing the rest of you on the Potrero Hill Gridiron in September for the 2020 SFRPD Youth Flag Football League!

2020 League Info:  Beginning Saturday, September 12th, 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 Recreation Center (801 Arkansas St.). 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.
