Register by August 2 for early-bird discount! Deadline to register is August 23. Practices begin week of September 7.

  • Jr. Playmakers Football is celebrating its 10th anniversary this fall by adding a new division for kindergarteners and enhancing the many benefits of flag football.
  • Jr. Playmakers is for boys and girls of all sizes and abilities where equal playing time and equal participation is expected and encouraged.
  • Kids of all sizes are throwing and catching the ball, making interceptions, pulling flags on defense and running for big touchdowns – all while having a good time, making friends, getting exercise and having fun. Positions are rotated throughout the season to promote an inclusive experience.
  • Jr. Playmakers flag football lets youth learn the fundamentals of the game without having to worry about pads, tackling, and blocking. Physical contact is minimal which reduces the chance of injury.
  • Boys and girls get their daily 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity as recommended by the Let’s Move Missoula initiative and the NFL’s Play 60 campaign.
  • Flag football is a great example of a skill sport requiring agility, strategy, team play as well as bone and strength development, according to UM Health and Human Performance professor Dr. Steven Gaskill.
  • The maximum time commitment is 3 days per week between practices and games. Children can participate in other sports/activities at the same time as Jr. Playmakers, promoting well-rounded kids. Parks and Recreation places kids on teams based on their school or neighborhood.
  • For boys and girls, grades K-6. Practices begin the week of Sept. 7. Register by August 2 for early-bird discount.
