The Paladins are once again participating in flag football this fall with games against opponents within the Northshore Independent Athletic League. PCA has a 7th and 8th grade team, though 5th and 6th graders are eligible to participate with an eye towards learning the game and improving their skills for future years.
While the Fall 2017 league schedule will not be set until league meetings on the 28th of August, our first practice is August 24th at 5:30 PM in Madisonville, (right across the street from the baseball fields). In large part, practices are scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Practice location typically rotates between the First Baptist Church in Covington right off of Hwy 21, and the Pine Street Rec fields in Madisonville. Flag football is a rather unique sport in that there are no high schools playing it, so 8th grade represents essentially the highest level of competition that can be played within the school environment.
The cost to participate is $85.00 plus the annual $50.00 PCA family membership fee for the new school calendar year. These fees will cover the cost of jersey, field rentals, officials, and equipment.
Regardless of what your son’s experience level might be, flag football just might be a great fit, as there are multiple ways on a football field where they might be able to contribute. For more information, please contact John Schroder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
