Football season is almost here, and if you want to get your child into the game (and give them an outlet for running of that surplus energy), get them signed up for Temple Parks & Rec's Flag Football League.

Early registration is $45, open now through August 3. Late registration will run through August 10 and cost $55. You can stop by the Wilson Park Recreation Center at 2205 Curtis B. Elliott Drive to pick up a registration form or download one here. You can see a list of rules and regulations here.

Registration is open to boys and girls ages 6 to 12. There'll be two age divisions - 6 to 9 and 10 to 12 - determined as of September 1, 2019. Teams of 8 will be formed by random placement, though sibling requests can be made. (No pre-formed teams will be allowed.)

Practice will be held twice a week, with games played on Saturdays. Temple Parks & Rec will provide equipment and team t-shirts.

They could also use volunteer coaches, so if you're interested, give the TP&R's Athletics Office a call at (254) 298-5582 or email them at tklusacek@templetx.gov. You can also contact them about limited scholarships for qualified kids.

Get the kids outdoors this fall for fun and football with Temple Parks & Rec!
