With a strong emphasis on safety, the Mini Mites Flag Football Program introduces players to the fundamentals of football using fun games and drills that appropriate for this age group. Athletes will practice running the ball, pass routes, catching, throwing, blocking and concepts during game play. In addition to the instructional activities, each week will include a modified game. Game play incorporates an equal amount of playing time and a rotation of positions. Parent help is encouraged for our football programs. Adults will serve as the quarterback during game play and will be sure to emphasize sportsmanship and demonstrate positive attitudes for the rookie athletes. New for 2020 this program will be combined with the Obetz Parks and Rec Department and will take place at the Fortress in Obetz.
