Registration is now open for the sixth annual Flags for the Cure flag football tournament, which will take place Jan. 2-6 at Acreage Community Park. Tournament rules apply. Triple-threat flag football belts (NIRSA- and USFTL-approved) will be utilized. There is a seven-player minimum or up to a 14-player max per team.
There will be boys and girls divisions for 10 and under, 13 and under, and 18 and under. For adults, there will be men’s and women’s divisions for 29 and under, and 30 and over. Players in the 10-U through 18-U divisions can play up in the next division; however, there is no playing up allowed in the men’s and women’s divisions.
The Acreage Community Park fields will be closed after Nov. 17. All tournament team practices will need to be held elsewhere. Practice times and locations are up to the individual coaches and teams, as the Acreage Athletic League and Acreage Girls Flag Football League have no control of fields until the tournament dates.
Registration costs $45 a player, and a participant T-shirt will be provided. Coaches and team supporters can purchase T-shirts for themselves for an additional $10 each. The deadline to register is Dec. 3. Sponsors and raffle items are being sought as well.
