The Jr. NFL Flag Football Program is the premier flag football league for boys and girls ages 5-14 years old. The program teaches youth the fundamentals of football, good sportsmanship, and teamwork through practices and games. The goal of the program is to educate its participants in the game of football as well as teach skills and lessons that help them succeed both on and off the field.

our mission

To provide youth an opportunity to play and grow in a family-friendly environment.

Our philosophy

The Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District believes that participation in youth sports and recreation builds positive self-esteem; promotes underlying values like sportsmanship, hard work, respect and camaraderie; and contributes to social, emotional, and physical development. We aim to provide programs to young people of all backgrounds that emphasize participation, teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun, placing less emphasis on the competitive aspect of sports and focusing instead on the process of growing and learning together. We expect all participants, parents, and coaches to support this philosophy.

Important COVID-19 Notice

Under guidelines from Sacramento County government and health officials, organized youth sports are NOT permitted at this time.  As a result, the start of our Jr. NFL Flag Football league may be put on hold.  While we do not yet have the green light for the league, we fully intend to get it up and running as scheduled, as soon as approval is given by county officials.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Please refer to our COVID-19 Response page for the latest information on the status of all District programs.

Wait List registration Open!

Despite the conditional hold on the league, we have opened up wait list registration for your convenience. The wait list registration does not require payment at this point, but it will show us your interest in the league and help secure your spot. When and if we receive approval from the county to resume our youth sports leagues, we will then toggle your registration to require payment thus officially enrolling you in the program.
