VLPRA offers district-based youth football and cheerleading

| August 14, 2016


VALDOSTA – There’s less than two weeks left to register for Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation school-based youth football and cheerleading league.

The league is open to all Kindergartners through 5th graders in Valdosta and Lowndes County. Teams are separated by middle school district, so children will play ball with their friends from school and practice close to home! For instance, a child who attends Lake Park Elementary will play for the Lowndes Middle District, while a child who goes to S.L. Mason will play for the Valdosta Middle District. Kids will even play in their school colors. The league is also open to Scintilla Charter Academy and private schools.

The league is broken up into three age brackets. Kindergartners and 1st graders will play flag football, 2nd and 3rd graders are paired up for tackle football, and 4th and 5th graders will play tackle ball together. Cheerleading follows the same brackets. The league will run from early September through November.

Football and cheerleading uniforms as well as helmets and pads are included in the registration fees. It’s only $75 for tackle football and $50 for flag football and cheerleading. Parents can register their children online at www.vlpra.com or at VLPRA’s main office at 1901 North Forrest Street in Valdosta. The registration deadline is August 21st.
