If the town you live in does not offer a program you are welcome to join us. However if the town you live in currently offers a flag football program please sign up with them. (ie Providence Flag Football , Logan Flag Football, North Logan Flag Football, Smithfield Flag Football)

The field markings and rules will be based on the NFL flag program with possible minor field size modifications based on available space. Similar to the NFL flag program a small team size format with 5 v 5 or similar will be used to maximize play time and player experience with the ball. Actual rules, team size, and field size for the 5th & 6th grade will follow rules similar to NFL flag as well if we end up with an in house league. However, if the number of teams we end up with for 5th & 6th grade does not allow for an in house league we will follow rules agreed upon with the cities we end up playing.
Games/Scrimages & Officiating: since our objective is to offer an affordable developmental program with a football experience where participants can learn the basics in a non-competitive enviornment, games for 1st & 2nd grade & 3rd & 4th Grade will be more of a scrimage format with the coaches officiating and teaching players throughout the scheduled time frame. For the 5th & 6th grade league an official will be utilized to help manage the game and place the ball. This official will be trained to teach the game fundamentals while keeping it fun and fair.
Registration Deadline AUG 7TH or when full: Once registration is closed, names will be placed on a waiting list until August 12th, with placement on a first-come-first-served basis, registration even prior to the deadline does NOT guarantee placement on a team. However, Nibley City Recreation will make every effort to find a place for your child as long as there are appropriate team #'s and volunteer coaches to support a team. Any registration processed after the August 7th deadline is subject to a $10.00 late fee if we are able to place them on a team (with the exception of those added to the waiting list prior to August 7th).

The refund processing fee includes participants signing up from towns that are not eligible for this program (ie.
