Upcoming Flag Football 2020 Season

FLAG FOOTBALL 2020

The Bobcats do plan on holding a 2020 Flag Program.  We have partnered with NFL Play 60 where the focus of our program continues to center around instilling positive sportsmanship, player and teammate development, and most importantly having FUN. The Bobcats offer leagues / divisions for grades K-8th. Our coaches are encouraged to give players the opportunity to rotate positions and share equal playing time.

The 2020 plans to offer team and individual events at the end of the season, including a “Punt, Pass, Kick” competition as well as a “Super Bowl” and an option “Pro Bowl” game for selected players.

 

2020 Program Details Subject To Change Due to COVID-19

9 Week Season (for past participants, format to follow previous season but subject to change based on final registration counts.

Practices to begin first week of August (days and # of practices vary by coach)

Games expected to begin the 3rd week of August, concluding the 3rd week of October. Field locations will be Freedom, Andrew High School, McCarthy Park, and Helen Keller School.

All games played in Tinley Park (Andrew High School, Freedom Field, and Guenther Field)

Program Cost – $135. Multi-sport discount of $15 off of Indoor registration if you participate in both the Fall Outdoor and the Winter Indoor football program.

Mandatory $50 helmet purchase / $25 rental soft helmet (rugby type) required.

Player safety is a top concern for parents and for the Bobcat organization. In 2020 we will continue our partnership with Rock Solid helmets, where players will be required to wear a Rock Solid helmet (includes bobcat logo). If you previously purchased a helmet through the bobcats then you may continue to use that helmet.

Uniforms to include jersey, shorts, and football socks that align to team / uniform. Players can wear baseball / football pants if they prefer.

Players get to keep their flags / belts once the season is complete.
