To kick start their second season, the Blue Bombers would like to invite you young’uns out to play some flag football

Of course, we’re not talking on these fields of white, but indoor flag football.

“We would like to introduce flag football over the next few months in hopes that they love it and want to join tackle football at the end of July,” organizer Jorleen Russell said.

All you need is to be in grade 2-7, a water bottle, some runners and the unflagging energy of youth.

The free skills camp kicks off Sunday, Feb. 16 and goes 2 p.m. – 4 p.m at teh Indoor Youth Soccer facility. Both boys and girls are encouraged to attend.

Organizers ask parents to RSVP by Feb. 12, or, for informantion, call Debbie Lojstrup at 250-255-1674.

“We are very excited to bring football back to Quesnel. We had our come back year in the 2013 season and we were able to have two teams, an atom team and a peewee team. Both teams did very well for their first year,” Russell said.
