Walla Walla Public Schools to offer elementary flag football
This fall elementary students across the school district will have an opportunity to compete against each other in flag football thanks to the school district’s levy funds and grant support from the district’s 21st Century Afterschool Program.
This free new co-ed flag football program, for 4th and 5th grade students, begins September 18 and continues through October 24. Program management will fall under the umbrella of the district’s 21st Century Afterschool program, and equipment and program associated costs will be funded by the 21st Century Afterschool program. The goal of the program is to provide a positive afterschool activity where students can enhance their football skills, learn to play as a team and develop good sportsmanship.
Practices will be held after school from 2:45 to 4:30 p.m. with games being held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays after school. There are no practices or games on Wednesdays. Schools will play each other twice during the season. Transportation will be provided from the school to the game sites for all players. Parents are encouraged to pick up their children after all practices and following the games at the hosting schools. However, school transportation home is available if needed.
Registration Open September 5 through September 15:
