Recognizing national trends for youth football we will be adding Flag Football for players in grades 1-4.  Starting this year, participation in Tackle Football will be available to grades 5-7.

Des Moines Parks and Recreation and Rider Club Football are partnering to offer Flag Football to children in grades 1-4.  Volunteer coaches will lead practices and games.  Score will be kept and referees are provided.

Cost will be approximately $50 per player, team jersey included, flags and all other equipment provided
8-week program, with practice beginning early August
