Flag Football

UpdatedSunday August 16, 2020 byLP Sports.

Flag Football offers both boys and girls the opportunity to learn the basic principles of the game of football while upholding the same guiding principles as all other LP Sports programs. Flag Football will provide children a safe, recreational environment to learn about the game of football as well as learn life-changing values like self-esteem and sportsmanship. Through participation in LP Sports, children and their parents will experience the joy of learning more about Jesus Christ through practice and game-time devotionals and bible studies.

Specifically customized for boys and girls entering 1st-6th grades (must not be 12 before September 1), LP Sports Flag Football enhances the self-esteem of each participant, while teaching respect for authority, sportsmanship, character, and the game of football. 

Every child is given equal playing time and at each practice, the coach leads his or her team in a short bible study/devotional time which includes scripture memory.

Practice/Game Format:
Practices consist of one, one-hour practice a week with younger players generally practicing at earlier times and the older players usually filling the later time slots.

Games are played on Saturdays at Rochell Elementary, beginning at 9am and are usually completed by 3pm. Unless making up a game from a rain-out, you can plan on playing one game each Saturday.


Where are the fields?
All flag football PRACTICES are held at the Lakepointe fields located adjacent to Ralph Hall Parkway on the south end of our Rockwall campus.
