Join the HCER flag football league this spring

Hudson Community Education and Recreation is partnering with the USFTL (The United States Flag & Touch Football League)/ NFL Flag football organization to offer a new flag football league this spring.

"This league is in direct response to feedback from HCER parents who wanted a flag football program in Hudson, that offered flag football in a fun, yet well-organized format. We found this flag football program, through USTFL/NFL Flag, to be the best program available," said Meredith Zaffrann, HCER Director.

Flag Football participants will be divided into 4 age group divisions, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-17. The league includes a 7 game regular season. Included with each registration is an NFL Flag jersey and a set of flags.

HCER's program will host all games at Hudson City School District fields on Saturday mornings, April 1st- May 20th. Registration is only through the USTFL/NFL Youth Flag program website. Registration fee is $100 for the season. A late registration fee applies, so register early!

For more information about these or any HCER programs, call 330-653-1210 or visit the HCER website at www.hudson.k12.oh.us/hcer. Follow HCER on Twitter @HCER2440.
