Registration for the Spring 2018 NFL Flag Football League at Ida Lee Park is open and filling fast.
The Ida Lee NFL Flag Football House League continues to grow. This season, teams will be formed in six age divisions: 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, and 14-16 years old. Teams will be selected and formed through a draft process after players’ skills have been evaluated at player evaluation days on Feb. 24 and 25. Practices will begin the week of March 19. Each team will play at least six of seven scheduled regular season games, beginning the week of April 6. Following the regular season, playoff games will determine champions in each division, with each team guaranteed at least one playoff game. The season will end the week of May 19. All players will be outfitted in NFL jerseys. Register at idalee.org or by calling the Ida Lee Park Recreation Center at 703-777-1368. Registration ends Feb. 13.
The Ida Lee NFL Flag Football Elite League returns this spring and will consist of four divisions: 10 and under, 12 and under, 14 and under, and 18 and under. The Elite League is a competitive league made of self-formed teams of seven to 10 players that must include an adult head coach. The Elite League is a great 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. The Elite League will provide players with premier competition in the region on some of the best flag football fields in the area. Cost per team is $800 and includes NFL jerseys, up to seven regular season games, playoff games, and practice space. Registration ends March 1. Direct questions to Kemper Winstead (703-737-7157 or firstname.lastname@example.org), or Kyle Clarke (703-771-2778 or email@example.com).
Both leagues are always in need of coaches. Anyone interested in coaching their child’s team, or any team, should contact Winstead or Clarke.
