The first day of autumn begins Sunday, September 22, and while most people probably wouldn't know that, many do associate fall with the time of year…football season. Parents, football is back and it’s time to get the boys off the couch and pry the video game controller out of their hands.
Flag football is a 10 week season starting September 7, 2013 to November 23, 2013 and ranges from 3rd to 8th grade. Youth flag football is a competitive league but focuses on teaching children the correct way to play football and making sure everyone is having fun. The 10 week season is divided up by evaluations, a practice game, 6 league games and a bowl game. All participants play at least a half a game, and will receive a Huntington Beach recreation jersey and league awards.
So parents don’t waste any more time, message the Carpal Tunnel from the boys fingers and get them running on the football field. The next Drew Brees or Adrian Peterson may very well be playing in the Huntington Beach youth flag football league…you never know.
