Dear Coaches and Parents:
Welcome to the Flight Flag Football League at Brentwood Academy! We have received several inquiries from parents and coaches about the league's status given the recent decision to cancel Flight Basketball at Brentwood Academy, and we are excited to announce the Flight Flag Football league will continue.
This opportunity is for teams of boys and girls in grades K-5. Flag Football will be a grade-based 7-on-7 league with all games at Brentwood Academy. Flight Flag Football is a league that encourages nurturing and challenging youth, instilling life lessons through teamwork, friendship, and strong character.
Our program is designed to teach athletes the fundamentals of the game, and build confidence while promoting dedication and teamwork in a fun environment.
We look forward to having you join us for Flight Flag Football!
