League Information

HP Sports, NFL Flag Football

Fall 2018

League Mission Statement:

HP Sports NFL Flag Football is a league dedicated to “Creating Competitive Christian Athletes”. Our goal of "Creating Competitive Christian Athletes" will be accomplished by building each player’s self-esteem, teaching each player the physical and mental fundamentals of each sport, giving each player equal playing time, teaching good sportsmanship and the value of playing as a team. Each player will receive a reversible NFL jersey and a set of NFL Flags. Each player also receives a FREE membership  for USA Football Membership.

During this time players should increase their knowledge of the game, develop new friendships with players and coaches, and feel they are an important member of the team.  

HP Sports is focused on fun and the physical and mental fundamentals of the game, rather than simply winning and losing.  

Our goal is to provide your child with a positive sporting experience that will develop their love for God and athletics.
