Registration is happening now for Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority’s brand new Youth Passing League.

Coaches can bring their own teams in this 7-on-7 league that involves non-contact play to provide skill development for rising 6th-8th graders. Each team can have up to 12 players who will polish their skills by playing both offense and defense on a shortened field to prepare for the upcoming season.

It’s only $180 per team and VLPRA will provide the flag equipment.  Registration is happening through May 8th.  The season will run mid-May through June.

All coaches must pass a background check before practices start.  Coaches can register teams and fill out the background check information at VLPRA’s website, www.vlpra.com, or at the main office located at 1901 North Forrest Street in Valdosta.
