The new flag football program started this past Monday on the Recreation fields. There were 40 boys and girls participating in the Pre-K and Kindergarten clinic. The clinic focuses on following directions, agility, and basic football skills. We also had approximately 60 boys and girls from grades 1 through 6 working on drills and getting ready for league play. There is still time to sign up for the program. The clinic meets for the next seven Mondays from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. League play is slated to start games on Sunday, October 6. Games will be played at 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Don’t delay, sign up today. Visit www.longbeachny.gov/rec to download an application.
