2024 JFC Fall Youth Flag Football League (K - 6th)

2024 Jackson Friends Church Fall Youth Flag Football League (K - 6th)

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Thursday, August 15th, 2024

This Co-Ed youth flag football league will take place at Jackson Friends Church for grades K - 6th. The league will run August 24th - October 19th. It will include nine practices and seven games. The registration cost is $82, which includes a t-shirt, pizza party night at the last practice and an end of year gift at the last game! Those that need a jersey, the cost is $18 (soccer and flag football jerseys are the same, so you can reuse them).

This league is a recreational flag football league for grades K - 6th. Volunteer coaches (mainly parents) will work with youth on developing their football skills, including catching, throwing, quickness, coordination, balance, reactions, etc. Youth will learn good practice techniques and develop interpersonal and teamwork skills. We will also provide weekly devotions and verses for the kids to give them an opportunity to hear about Jesus.

WE ALWAYS NEED COACHES, so if you are a parent are you have a passion for kids and football (and an hour to spare on a week day and Saturday), please volunteer. We will give you all the stuff you need for coaching and devotions. $10 coupon off of a future registration for coaching!

DEPENDING on sign ups, the league will have practices once a week on Tuesday or Thursday from 5:30 - 6:30 PM OR 5:15-6:00 PM / 6:00-6:45 PM depending on your team (practices will be either one hour or 45 minutes long, followed by a short devotion). Games will be on Saturdays, late mornings/early afternoons, starting September 7th! We will have ONE Saturday practice to kick off the league on Saturday August 24th (this practice will be an hour long). There is a slight chance of Monday practice availability too, if we have an overflow of participants/teams (I'll keep you informed on that). All practices and games will be held at Jackson Friends Church, outside on our fields. In the event we have severe weather conditions, practices may be cancelled and games will be rescheduled.

The league will be split up into three divisions (if need be, we may move division ages around a bit):
K - 1st Grade
2nd - 3rd Grade 
4th - 6th Grade

There will be two evaluation offerings before the season starts, so we can split the teams up evenly. Youth must attend ONE evaluation night (in the case that they cannot make either, they will still be able to play, I'll just need to collect some eval info). Evaluation opportunities will be Tuesday, August 13th, 5:30 - 7:00 pm, and Thursday August 15th, 5:30 - 7:00 pm. Youth may come at any time during either of these dates, 5:30 - 7:00 pm (ex. - one kid could show up at 5:50 pm and another shows up at 6:45 pm). The evaluation process only takes about 10 - 15 minutes. We will plan on doing evaluations outside, unless we have bad weather (in which case they will be indoors. You'll get an email if we have any weather issues). Rosters and Practice Schedule will be announced by Tuesday evening, August 20th (game schedule will follow soon after).

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN COACHING, director Joel Bankert will reach out to you individually about coaching info and necessary info.

WE ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOU WITH US FOR JFC FLAG FOOTBALL THIS SEASON!

This Co-Ed youth soccer league will take place at Jackson Friends Church for grades Pre K - 3rd Grade. Pre Kindergarteners should be four years old or turning four years old during the season (three years old is too young in most cases). Our fall soccer league goes up to 3rd grade, because our flag football league is also running at the same time in the fall on the large main field. The junior soccer league will run August 24th - October 19th. It will include nine practices and seven games. The cost is $80 and includes a t-shirt, pizza party at the last practice and an end of year gift! Anyone who needs a jersey, it is $18 and yours to keep and reuse (same ones used for flag football/soccer). Teams will practice once weekly (TUESDAY OR THURSDAY, with a potential of Mondays IF an overflow of teams), with games on Saturdays late mornings/early afternoons. We will be running at the same time as flag football but on smaller fields to the left of them. First practice will be on Saturday, August 24th (the ONLY Saturday practice). First weekly practice will be Tuesday August 27th OR Thursday, August 29th (depending on your team), unless we add in Monday practice, in which that first practice will be August 26th. DEPENDING ON SIGN UPS, practice will either run 5:30 - 6:30 PM OR at 5:15-6:00 / 6:00-6:45 PM (45 min long). Practices will either be one hour or 45 minutes long, followed by a short devotion. Practices will only be 45 min if we need to for the schedule, but we may be able to make practices an hour again. First game will be on Saturday, September 7th, 2024. Games will start at 10 AM. Pre K will be it's own division, K/1st grade will play together and so will 2nd/3rd Grade. The Pre-K field will be played on a smaller field and K-3rd on a bigger field. Some K/1st grade games/practices might be on the smaller field. Matches will be played 4 vs 4, with a maximum of 8 players on each team (unless larger teams need to be made, in which case games will be 5 vs 5). THERE WILL BE NO ACTIVITIES SATURDAY, AUGUST 31st, LABOR DAY WEEKEND.

WE NEED COACHES. Please sign up to coach if you can spare an hour on a week night and a Saturday each week. We have everything you need to be a great coach, from first timers to experienced coaches :) ($10 off coupon for next registration with us)

The league is recreational and will focus on developing youth's soccer skills, as well as their relationship with Jesus Christ. Youth will learn good practice techniques and develop interpersonal and teamwork skills.

The league will be split up into three divisions:
Pre K Level
K/1st Grade Level
2nd/3rd Grade Level

There will be two evaluation dates available for the youth to come out and be evaluated before teams are created. Tuesday, August 13th, 5:30 - 7 pm OR Thursday, August 15th, 5:30 - 7 pm. Youth need only attend one. You may come any time during the 5:30 - 7 PM timeframe (evaluations only take 10-15 minutes per participant). NO EVALUATIONS FOR PRE-K LEVEL, unless you want to see if your child can move up to the K/1st division. Evaluations will be at Jackson Friends Church, outside on the field by the playground. Depending on weather/field conditions evals could be moved inside. Soccer evaluations will take place at the same time as flag football evaluations. Rosters and Practice Schedule will be announced by Tuesday evening, August 20th (game schedule will follow soon after).

We will host both camp days at Jackson Friends Church, at 7945 Portage St. NW, Massillon, OH 44646. Camps will take place on two regulation volleyball courts in our gym (enter through Door#2 in the Portage St. parking lot).

These camps will focus on the FUNdamentals of volleyball. Athletes will learn the basic foundational skills for passing, setting, serving and attacking. In addition, athletes will get the opportunity to compete in games for skills and in team play. We will split up the participants into two groups, 3rd - 5th grade and 6th - 8th grade.

Coach Bio:
My name is Hannah Miller, and I am the varsity coach for Lake Center Christian High School and will be going into my sixth season there. I am a mother to three, ages six, four and two. I am a social worker that currently works in the mental health field. Before Lake Center, I have coached club teams, given private lessons, and was varsity coach at Central Christian. I played high school level volleyball at Central Christian and went on to play at Malone University. 
I am passionate about the game of volleyball and working hard in the sport while giving the glory to God. I am looking forward to meeting you all and learning more about the game including skills, motor work, and more! 

We hope that we can continue to build some momentum from our volleyball camps to develop into a youth volleyball league in the future, and/or more opportunities for camps/clinics.

See you this summer!
