Play Safe, Play Smart, Have Fun!

Registration for Nibley City Recreation Flag Football is available to 1st-9th graders (2024-25 school Year). Also, available to residents of: River Heights, Millville, Hyrum, Paradise, Wellsville, Mendon, College Ward, & Young Ward

All skill levels are welcome to participate in Nibley City’s youth flag football league. The focus of this program is to teach participants the value of teamwork, develop leadership, learn the fundamental skills of the game, and enjoy the experience. If you have any questions, interest in coaching, and/or interest in other program support opportunities, please contact Nibley City Recreation Coordinator Curtis Snelgrove: (435) 752-0431 or [email protected]

There will be NO game overlap for players that also want to play Nibley City Recreation FALL SOCCER

Games/Scrimmages & 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 environment, games for 1st & 2nd grade & 3rd & 4th Grade will be more of a scrimmage format with the coaches officiating and teaching players throughout the scheduled time frame. For the 5th-6th & 7th-9th grade leagues, 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.

2024 Tentative Season Schedule Coming Soon

***We at Nibley Recreation are constantly working to know how will be best to continue to grow our programs so more youth can participate. We are considering expanding our 2024 Flag Football to include a Kindergarten League.

If we have enough interested participants to make a league we will open registration.***

League Details

Rules

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 6 v 6 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 & 7th-9th 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 & 7th-9th grade does not allow for an in house league we will follow rules agreed upon with the cities we end up playing.

If there are enough players and coaches to form a Wellsville/Mendon, Hyrum/Paradise, or Millville team, these teams may arrange to hold practices in their respective towns.
