Flag & Tackle Football

The objective of the league is to provide a fully organized and controlled football environment in order to teach the fundamentals of both the game itself as well as character development. Good educational habits, teamwork, dedication, and commitment are stressed to all age levels. Children are separated by age and skill.

An age matrix provides that kids participate in the proper division. Games are played at varying locations across Pinellas County.

The playing season begins with practice in July, and consists of a 11 game Varsity and JV schedule, then concludes with conference playoffs.

The conference championship is typically held the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.

*\If hurricane season should affect a playing week, the season could be extended. However, no games would be played on Thanksgiving weekend.
