Flag Football League

Lake Highlands Youth Football Seasons:

Spring (Late March through May)

WORKING ON SKILLS AND VALUES

Flag Football is offered in the fall and spring seasons.  It is a recreational program designed for youngsters new to football as well as those not quite ready for tackle football. The Y flag football leagues are geared toward youth who want to learn how to play, brush up on flag football rules, tactics, and flag football drills, and most importantly - HAVE FUN! Participants should anticipate a challenging program that focuses on fundamentals, good sportsmanship and fun.  Practices are once a week and begins one week before game season start date.  Practices are set by the volunteer head coach.  Games are played at Glencoe Park and Lake Highlands/White Rock community areas.

PlayerSpace

"Help! I have not received email communication/do not know what team my child is on/do not know when my child's practices and games are."

YMCA Staff will send all communications through our sports management site PLAYERSPACE. All updates to rosters, schedules, weather activity and events will be posted to your team page. It is essential to download the PlayerSpace app to better receive push notifications.

If your coach is not sending messages to the team through PlayerSpace, he may be using personal communication methods such as group email, group text, or Groupme, so please make sure that the email and phone number you provide at registration is correct. 

Notifications from PlayerSpace will be sent to the email address that you provided at registration. Please add noreply@playerspace.com to your safe sender list to ensure that you receive all notifications. If you believe that you are not receiving notifications, please check your junk/spam folders for emails from 'White Rock Sports Assocation/noreply@playerspace.com.' There is also a chance that you may have opted out of our emails in previous sports and that is why you do not receive PlayerSpace communications. If this is the case, let our staff know so that we may opt you back in. 

If you have concerns about the email address or phone number that you provided at registration, contact your YMCA youth sports director.
