Leesburg’s Flag Football Registration Open

Registration for Ida Lee Park Recreation Center’s Spring 2016 NFL Flag Football is open and filling up fast. The recreation center is offering two leagues again this year: The House League and the Elite League. Both leagues follow NFL Flag Football rules.

The Ida Lee NFL Flag Football House League will be made up of six age groups: 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12, and 13-15 year-old divisions. Teams will be selected and formed through a draft process after players’ skills have been evaluated at the player evaluation days on March 5 and 6. All players will be outfitted in NFL jerseys and each team will play up to seven regular season games and playoffs to determine division champions.  To register, go to www.idalee.org, or contact the front desk at Ida Lee Park Recreation Center at 703-777-1368.  Registration ends on Feb. 22.

The Ida Lee NFL Flag Football Elite League will consist of four divisions: 10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under, and 18 & under. The Elite League is a competitive league made up of teams of seven to 10 players that are formed by themselves and must include an adult head coach. The Elite League is an ideal off-season program for tackle football players working on their skill development; flag football tournament teams looking for high caliber competition; and recreational athletes looking for a more competitive outlet. Cost per team is $800 and includes NFL team jerseys, up to seven regular season games, playoffs and practice space. Registration ends March 1.  For questions or to register contact League Manager Andrew Kim at 703-771-2778 or akim@leesburgva.gov.

Anyone that is interested in volunteering as an NFL Flag Football coach is also urged to contact Kim.
