Webster Groves Junior Statesmen Football Camp provides opportunities for 5th, 6th, & 7th grade boys to enjoy America's favorite sport in a NON-CONTACT environment. Players benefit by being physically active with continuous action while learning the fundamentals of football along with lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship. Flag football is a version of football where the basic rules of the game are similar to those of the mainstream game (often called "tackle football" for contrast), but instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier ("deflagging") to end a down. Flag football is played without helmets or pads due to it being NON-CONTACT.

WHEN: Saturdays from 11:00 - 12:30;
WHERE:  Hixson Middle School fields
COST: Free
