Clinton Family YMCA extends registration dates for flag football, cheerleading


The Clinton Family YMCA is offering open registration for flag football and cheerleading for three playing divisions through the August 16 deadline.

Age groups will be 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12 for flag football and grades K-6 for cheerleading. The cutoff age for flag football is August 1. (As an example, if a youth is currently 9 years of age but turns 10 before August 1 he/she is considered a 10-year-old and play in the 10-12 age group.)

Team assignment fall-out will be on Monday August 19 for all age groups and cheerleading. Ages 4-6 will fall out at 5:15 p.m.; ages 7-9 will fall out at 5:45 p.m.; ages 10-12 will fall out at 6:15 p.m., while all cheerleaders will fall out at 6:45 p.m.

Teams will practice for two weeks and begin league play at the Presbyterian College Intramural Complex on Tuesday, September 3. League play will be each Tuesday and Thursday at 5:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. at the PC complex and conclude on Thursday, September 26.

Players will receive an open-mesh football jersey specifically designed for flag football, and cheerleaders will receive shorts, shirts and pom-poms.

Registration fees are $50 for Y members and $65 for non-members. Financial aid and assistance are available. The YMCA will not deny anyone the opportunity to participate in its youth sports activities.

Interested participants are encouraged to register well before the Friday, August 16 deadline.
