The 2019 season of Impact Flag Football in Guntersville starts this month.

“It’s our third season,” said Ben Yancy, one of the league’s organizers. “I know that the Albertville Upward League is not in action anymore, and we would love to extend an invitation to the kids in that area to come join us.”

Registration ends Aug. 10. Players can use the sign-up button on the league’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gffl.wumc.ssba.

The registration fee is $85 per player.

“Scholarship opportunities are available to ensure we give kids the opportunity,” Yancy said. Contact him at bsydad@gmail.com for scholarship details.

Draft day is Aug. 11 and practices begin Aug. 12. Age groups are grades K-1, grades 2-3, grades 4-5 and grades 6-8.

“We are the only league offering a middle school division in our area,” Yancy said.

Registration can be done in person at Supreme Courts in Guntersville.

“There is a printable form on Facebook that can be dropped off or emailed, or they can completely register on the sign-up button on our Facebook page,” Yancy said.

All games are played at Warrenton United Methodist Church in Guntersville and are on Saturday mornings.

The league provides players an opportunity to learn football fundamentals, sportsmanship, teamwork, a positive attitude and respect for themselves and others.
