Wilton Flag Football (NFL) is adding two new summer programs and a FREE all-girls league this fall.
Registration is now open for all the summer and fall programs. Wilton Youth Football Cheer (WYFC) offers flag football for grades Pre-K-12 with both boys’ and girls’ options. The programs are coordinated by WYFC’s annually elected volunteer board of directors.
“We’re so excited for the summer and fall seasons,” said Tony Palumbo, volunteer vice president and flag football commissioner for WYFC. “When you hear from parents there is nothing their kids love more than flag football, you know it’s time to get more youth involved. With our new girls’ league, we will continue our tradition of providing a flexible and supportive atmosphere for the parents and kids. Our flexible scheduling philosophy supports kids playing multiple sports and volunteer coaches’ schedules. We are a family program run by a great group of volunteer parents, that make sure the kids come first in Flag Football.”
To support the new fall league, WYFC is offering, a FREE clinic/jamboree for Wilton girls and interested coaches on Wednesday, June 9.
