PARKLAND, FL- Parkland Flag Football is holding a free clinic this Saturday, June 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Pine Trails Park Field 1. The clinic is open to all experience or skill level and to any boys or girls ages 5-15 who plan on playing flag football in the fall. Athletes Performance Training will be conducting the drills.
Parkland Flag Football registration is now open with the early registration discount available through June 2, 2019. After June 2, the registration fee increases $25. Parkland Flag Football is available for boys kindergarten through 12th grade and for girls kindergarten through 9th grade. The boys high school league is new this year with the intention of helping build relationships, keeping the students active in a constructive environment and as an alternative to video games, according to board member and coach Matt Kaufman.
Parkland Flag Football is an immensely popular sport. Last season over 800 kids participated. "The goal every year is for the kids to have enough of a great experience that they want to play again the next year. The mission is to provide an experience for families to enjoy watching their child or grandchild while teaching them about effort, sportsmanship and teamwork," stated Kaufman.
Participation though sports opens up opportunities for children to meet new friends and learn and grow in a sport they love. "The relationships the kids build will last for the entirety of their years living in Parkland, and teammates become friends. The importance of learning how to be coached is a life lesson that can only be found in sports. To understand the balance of competition while still enjoying playing the game can only be achieved by participating," stated Kaufmann.
"Football is so fun. I can't wait to play with my friends again," added returning player Micah.
