Flag Football

Flag football is a summer program that provides young people an opportunity to actively participate in learning the game of football while developing athletic skills. The focus of this program is on the enjoyment of the game, participation, and skill development. After a couple of weeks of practice, teams will play games once a week for the remainder of the season. 

Flag football is open to boys and girls, grades 1 - 6, who live in Pelham or attend Pelham City Schools. If your child attends Pelham City Schools but you do not have a Pelham address, please stop by the Recreation Center and register.


You don't have to be experienced to be a volunteer coach or official for Pelham Parks & Recreation.  If you are interested, please register online.

Please provide the following in your email:

The City of Pelham conducts annual background checks on all volunteers associated with its recreational programs. These include national and state criminal history checks. Pelham Parks & Recreation coaches are also required to complete the Coach Safely program annually. Individuals that do not consent to the background check are not allowed to volunteer.
