“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.
