Jr. Playmakers Youth Sports

Jr. Playmakers offer a variety of youth sport leagues for the greater Missoula area. 

Jr. Playmakers Flag Football • Grades K-5

Registration deadlines below.   Register online    Printable registration form

Back for a 14th Season! Missoula youth in grades K - 8 hit the gridiron for another season of flag football. Jr. Playmakers emphasizes FUN, FAIR PLAY & GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP. Youth learn the basics of football from volunteer coaches and use those skills on the playing field.

Jr. Playmakers is for boys and girls of all abilities where equal playing time and equal participation is expected and encouraged. Flag football is a great example of a skill sport requiring agility, strategy, team play as well as bone and strength development, according to UM health and Human Performance professor Dr. Steven Gaskill. Participants get their daily 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity as recommended by the Let’s Move! Missoula initiative and the NFL’s Play 60 campaign. 

Coaches needed! 

If you are a parent/coach with football experience and would like to volunteer, please call 552-6266 or email us.
