Centennial NFF Flag Football Registration Open

By David Deter 07/07/2020, 3:00pm CDT

Flag Football Run Through National Flag Football is Now Open for Fall Registration

Below is a message from our Partners at National Flag Football


Fall registration is currently underway for any one of our 6 league locations through Minnesota. If you have a credit from the spring season, you may use it during your registration.

To ensure the safety of all of our families, we have credited our Return To Play Protocols to ensure for a fun and safe experience for all. Please take a moment to review by clicking here: Return To Play Protocols.

We will begin play on Sunday, September 13th. Our season will include an amazing Meet & Greet where you will meet your team and coaches for the first time. If you would like to be a volunteer coach on your child's team, please click here!

All practices conveniently take place one hour prior to game play each week. For many parents who balance many youth schedules, this is an absolute blessing. 

After the Meet and Greet, the season consists of six exciting games. Many teams will play one game per week. However, there may be a couple of double headers based on scheduling needs. 

The season will then look to wrap up on Sunday, October 25th. We have reserved an extra week of play, November 1st, if we run into any scheduling needs which require additional time.
