Youth Flag Football

Jr. Playmakers Flag Football • Grades K-7 

Back for a 16th Season! Register by August 1 to save! Register Online

Missoula youth in grades K - 7 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 kids 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 552-6665.
