FOR GRADES 1 - 4

REGISTRATION ENDS AUGUST 4, 2018

The Weatherford Optimist Flag Football Program was started some 15 years ago by Wayland Higginbottom to give our younger kids a chance to begin developing their football skills and learn the rules. The flag program is for kids 1st- 4th grade and in 2017 we had 17 flag football teams. We do not place more than 10 players on a team because we want each child to get as much playing time as possible.

8 WEEKS OF PLAY

The flag teams play on 8 consecutive Saturdays in order to be seeded for the tournament on the last Saturday at Kangaroo Stadium.

PLAYOFF TOURNAMENT

Elimination style tournament on the final weekend. We then award medals to the 1st and 2nd place teams from the tournament.

VOLUNTEER COACHES

All of our coaches and their assistants are volunteers and each coach gets to draft his own team after watching the kids go thru an evaluation time before the draft.

EVERYONE PLAYS

We do not place more than 10 players on a team because we want each child to get as much playing time as possible.
