Youth Flag Football

 *ALL FLAG BELTS MUST BE TURNED BACK IN TO THE HEAD COACHES AT THE END OF THE SEASON

Youth Recreational Flag Football Program Overview


The City of Hoover offers a fall recreational youth flag football program for boys and girls kindergarten thru 8th grade for the Fall 2019 season. Registration is open to residents and non-residents of Hoover beginning June 1st. The last day to register is Saturday, August 3rd. Girls have the option of playing down a grade. Flag football is a great way to play and learn the skills of football without the contact required of tackle football. Last fall, 2018, we had 91 teams participate in the City of Hoover Youth Flag Football League. Players are required to register and attend a player evaluation. Players will be drafted after evaluations and contacted by their coach about practices and game times. One practice during the week and games take place during the week at the new turf fields at the Hoover Met Sports Complex for grades 3rd and up.  One practice during the week and games take place on Saturday mornings at Spain Park Sports Complex for 2nd Grade and below.  Must be 5 years old as of August 8th in order to play in the Kindergarten League

7th/8th Graders have the option of registering individually or as a team. If you register as a team you must have a head coach. If you only have 3 to 4 friends that want to play you can register as an half of a team and we can fill in the rest of your team with players who register without teams.  7th/8th grade will have a competitive division and a recreational division.  Teams are placed in divisions based on skill that is determined by the league director.  7th/8th graders play 5 v 5. Games are played Tuesday nights at the Hoover Met Turf Fields.  Please contact Brent Solberg if interested in registering/coaching a 7th/8th grade team.
