Flag football kicks off in October
Wannabe NFL superstars it’s time again to dust off your cleats and get ready for Charles King Fitness Center’s annual Captain’s Cup Flag Football tournament.
Commands can pick up their registration form at the center no later than Oct. 1.
Sorry lone wolfs, teams are command orientated only. You cannot create you own team with your friends. However, if your command doesn’t have a team you can sign up as a free agent by contacting the Sports Coordinator Joey Santos who can assist you in getting on another team.
“There will be no independent teams this year,” Santos said. “Captain’s Cup is a command-orientated tournament.”
Santos said the coach’s meeting will be held on registration deadline. He encourages commands to sign up as quickly as possible to straighten out details but rules from last year still apply.
He said flag football is a great workout.
“It’s definitely a fitness sport,” he said. “You’re going to get a great workout sprinting up and down the field. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
So sign your team up and see who is the best flag football command. As an added incentive, at the end of the season last year, the tournament champions played the Air Force and lost!
