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.
