Spring Flag Football League - 2020

Registration Open!

**Please check back - we are looking in to options of running the 2020 Spring season this summer. We will keep everyone updated as we learn more!**

Hone your skills, get some  exercise, make new friends, and get a chance at making a big play. At South Suburban, our goal is that everybody plays. We encourage coaches to play all players equally and allow every player to try every position. Kids will get the chance to throw passes, make catches, pull flags, run for touchdowns, and even get a Pick 6. Our league is a great way to get out and play.
