Kids Flag Football


ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR 2019 FLAG FOOTBALL will begin MAY 1st through JUNE 15th.  To insure that your child will have a place on a team, please make sure you register on-line during our registration time. Any late registrations will be subject to a $10 late fee and we cannot guarantee that we will have place on a team for your child. All registrations on-line will be considered first. 

**PLEASE NOTE: Before beginning the on-line process, please read our Recreational Sports Policy on the Recreational Sports home page.**

Flag Football is offered in the fall to boys ages 6-12 and is offered at the same time as Fall Soccer. This type of football gives kids an opportunity to learn some basic football skills without the pads and tackling (All Flag Football Divisions are 5v5, and rules are posted on the ESCRA Website). Practice for flag football starts in August and lasts for one hour during the week at First Assembly. The 2019 season will begin in September through October (the exact dates will be posted once ESCRA posts them for the recreation directors). All games are played on Saturdays at local churches through the ESCRA (East Shelby Church Recreation Association). There are approximately 8 games in a season.

The registration fee for flag football will be $80/player, if you need a uniform, and $60 if you already have a uniform from last year (please let us know the uniform number). Both fees include pictures, a trophy and an end-of-season party. Before registering, please have your child try on his uniform from last year to be sure it fits. We order uniforms based on the number of players that request a new uniform.

For all registration questions involving Kids Flag Football, please contact Diane O’Connor: doc@famemphis.net

All children and youth sports are Christ-centered and are built around each player growing in social, physical and athletic skills. Teams are coached by men and women who have been approved by First Assembly Memphis and share the same values of the Recreational Sports Ministry of First Assembly.

Team Organization and Selection

All players will be assigned to a team based on their age group. We do not organize teams based on the placement of players in response to parent’s request. Although we want for your child to have a great experience, we do not rearrange teams based on being in the same class at school etc.

We do reserve the right to make an adjustment due to major conflicts between players or in extreme cases involving transportation problems, but this will be the exception, not the rule. We simply can’t run a successful and thriving program based on the requests of over 75 parents in any given season. Thanks for your understanding in this matter; it is always our goal for your child to meet
