WARRENSBURG - With the weather cooling down, it's a sign football players and coaches are ready to begin playing their favored sport on the gridiron - and the Queen Village is no exception.
The Warrensburg Youth Football Program launches its 2010 season this week with registration and practice.
The program offers tackle football for two age groups, plus flag football for the younger set. Tackle Team A is open to fifth and sixth grade players, and Tackle Team B is open to third and fourth grade players. Children from Warrensburg and surrounding communities - both boys and girls - are welcome.
Youth football team registration is set for 4:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 16, followed at 5 p.m. by the first practice for both A and B teams. The cost of registration is $45, which pays a portion of equipment expenses. Practices are held every weekday until school starts, when it drops down to three days per week. Most games are held Saturdays and Sundays in September.
Flag football is offered for first and second grade players. Children, both boys and girls, from Warrensburg and surrounding communities are welcome.
Regular season registration and practice for flag football begins Monday, Sept. 13, at 5 p.m. at the town recreation field. The cost is $25. Practices are held two days per week after school. Most games are held Saturdays.
