Mill Creek MetroParks has teamed up with NFL Flag to launch a co-ed youth NFL Flag Football League this spring at Wick Recreation Area.

Participants will wear Mill Creek MetroParks/NFL team branded jerseys. Every player also will receive flags with a belt, socks, shorts, a drawstring bag, a water bottle, optional shoe fittings and team picture opportunities.

Registration is open to age groups 4U, 6U, 8U, 10U and 12U. The player registration fee is $119.99 for Mahoning County residents and $129.99 for nonresidents. Players will receive $10 off if they register by Feb. 28. Register online here, in person at Wick Recreation Area or by calling 330-740-7114.

Skill evaluations will take place April 11 or 12. The evaluations will be followed by a coaches draft for team selections. Games will be played on Saturdays at Wick Recreation Area from May 14 through June 18.

“We’re thrilled to bring NFL Flag to the football-hungry communities of the Valley, and to host a flag football season at Wick Recreation Area,” Chris Bundy, Mill Creek recreation manager, said in a news release. “Backed by the NFL and our league-experienced staff, we’re proud to offer a flag football experience that features family friendly, alcohol-free tailgating, cheerleaders and some fun, fast-paced football action.”
