Cape Future Stars

2024 FUTURE STARS

WHAT IS IT

Cape Friday Night Flag Football is proud to introduce the Future Stars flag football program. This program is designed to teach our kindergarten and 1st grade players the fundamentals of flag football without sacrificing the competitive play that separates Cape Friday Night Flag Football from all other flag football programs in the area. Our Future Stars program is designed for all kindergarten and 1st grade flag football players to learn the basic fundamentals of flag football and will include practice time, run by Joe Marino, for all players within this division. These practices will be held on either Tuesday or Wednesday each week for all players regardless of the team they are placed on.

Joe Marino has been a part of the Cape Flag Football family for several years now and is a wonderful coach and mentor for the players. I'm proud to have him a part of the Cape Football family and I am truly grateful for his time and the dedication that it takes to teach our Future Stars what it takes to be a Cape Cougar!

HOW DOES IT WORK

  • All players will be placed onto individual teams and assigned a coach just like the older age groups.
  • The head coaches of those teams will work with Joe Marino to plan joint practices where every player learns the fundamentals of flag football as well as standard plays that they will run during the games on Friday nights.
  • Each team will be provided a common playbook to use for games on Friday nights.

If you have any questions/concerns or need help with registration, please contact Jason Worley at jasonworley19@gmail.com
