Flag Football League to Start Back Up in September

The five-on-five league is open to all boys and girls in second through fifth grades in San Bruno schools.

The Community Services Department recently announced that the city's youth flag football league will be coming back for another year.

The five-on-five league is open to all boys and girls in second through fifth grades, and the deadline to register is Sept. 7.

Looking to increase access to sports programs for kids in neighborhood schools, the city and San Bruno Park School District partnered up to start the flag football league two years ago. The program continues to gain momentum among the schools.

Practices, which are expected to start the week of Sept. 17, will be held at about 3 p.m. twice a week at the schools, and games will be on Friday evenings at City Park. Volunteer coaches will run the teams.

The season will run until the beginning of November and the cost is $65 to participate in the league, the city said.

There is also a flag football league for sixth-grade students, but they will play in the North County Recreation League on Parkside Intermediate's team, facing schools in South San Francisco, Millbrae, Burlingame and Hillsborough.
