Recreational League Goals

Our objectives are to develop and offer the players the opportunity to learn fundamental skills while instilling life lessons and values such as character, respect, accountability, teamwork, and sportsmanship to all who will participate in the Sports Academy Spring Youth Flag Football League. Applying the discipline of sports, all participants shall endeavor to teach sportsmanship in a team environment, physical fitness through individual effort, and wholesome well-being through physical activity and social association with other youths under proper adult leadership. The objective will be achieved by providing a competitive, supervised youth flag football league.

The focus is on the player experience. We hope all players will fall in love with the great game of football, meet new people, make new friends, better understand teamwork, make fantastic memories, and more.

That being said, our league performs a player evaluation, with independent evaluators, followed by a proven and well-established draft process.

Bring your own team and play with your friends in the competitive division or join in as a free agent and play in the recreation division.

Volunteers Coaches Wanted!

If you understand football in any aspect, we’d like to hear from you. We are in need of coaches for our youth leagues that range from grades Pre K – 8th. Contribute to a good cause and provide leadership among our youth teams.

For youth sports players, participation is a chance to experience fun competition and learn new skills in a supportive, safe environment. Volunteer coaches help make that possible. Plus it helps you learn about the sport and spend some quality time with your kid. Volunteer head coaches help make this possible, assistant coaches are also welcome and if you are interested in either one fill out this form.

See Code of Conduct.

 

SPORTS PERFORMANCE – League Teams (5U-16U) Description

ALL CURRENT LEAGUE MEMBERS can participate for free at their assigned times.

Human development from birth to adulthood is a continuous process that requires key physical, mental, emotional, and cognitive stages.  Children of ages from 6-16 should focus on refining general fundamental movement skills.  An area of importance is speed training which includes activities such as acceleration and deceleration mechanics, rapid changes of direction, cutting drills, & agility that contributes to the Long-Term Athletic Development model. Bodyweight strength training is another essential area where athletes will learn to control their bodies/limbs during sports activities in skills such as planks, push-ups, and squats to lay the foundation for progressive strength training methods throughout human development.
