FLEMINGTON, NJ - The Flemington Falcons kick off the organization’s 50th season on Tuesday, Aug. 1.
This season the Falcons will have five cheer teams, including three competitive teams, and four football teams. The Falcons will play home games at Hunterdon Central High School on the following Sundays; Aug. 27, Sept. 10, Oct. 8 (Homecoming) and Oct. 15. Everyone is invited to attend the games to support youth cheerleaders and football players.
Established in 1967, the Flemington Falcons provide the area’s best youth football and cheerleading opportunities to Hunterdon children. The Falcons, part of the Pop Warner Little Scholars Organization, offer programs for children age 5 to 15 in which player development focuses on the field and in the classroom. Annually, the Falcons serve more than 200 families who live primarily in the Hunterdon Central High School sending district, which comprises Delaware Township, East Amwell, Flemington, Raritan Township, Readington and Whitehouse.
To celebrate the organization’s 50th Anniversary, the Falcons are organizing a number of events to highlight the Falcons in the community, including plans for an expanded Homecoming Weekend, October 6 - 8. They’re looking forward to welcoming former Falcon players, coaches and families to join in a special on field ceremony during the Homecoming games on Oct. 8.
Alumni are welcome to join the "Flemington Falcons Alumni – A Celebration of 50 Years!" Facebook page, where they are collecting pictures and stories from past seasons to include in a time capsule video being created to mark the organization’s golden anniversary.
For 2017, the Falcons have launched a new website that includes online registration. Visit flemingtonfalcons.org for more information on the Falcons and upcoming events.
