Nutley Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci has announced that registrations for the spring season of Youth Flag Football are now being accepted. These applications are available early so teams can be prepared for Spring 2013.
Forms are currently available at the Nutley Recreation Department and printable registration forms are also available at www.nutleynj.org. The league will begin play in early April and is available to boys and girls grades 1 through 8. The fee for this program is $40 per child and the deadline for registration is March 1, 2013.
This program is designed to educate young people about football while emphasizing participation and sportsmanship. Players learn skills and lessons that help them succeed both on and off the field.
“Our goal is for the children to learn and enjoy the game, then potentially move onto our other football programs,” Tucci said. The program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork.
