Flag Football is a co-ed football league sponsored by the Fox-Rok Athletic Association organization to provide children ages 5 through 11 years old the opportunity to learn the proper skills to learn football in a safe environment, build social skills, instill teamwork and fundamental life skills, while having fun and learning the sport.  Flag football is a great non-contact fun sport that the children will enjoy.  Especially those children who are new to football and have an interested in it.  This is a great way to introduce them to the game and having fun.
  

Flag football is a non-contact version of football where the basic rules of the game are similar to those of the mainstream game, but instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier to end a down. 

All participates are required to wear rubber molded football cleats and black basketball shorts that are not provided by Fox-Rok A.A. 

All games are played on Sunday mornings at Lackman Playground located at 1101 Barlett Street, Philadelphia, PA 19114.

The season is 5 weeks, having 8 regular season games, including playoff and championship games.

How to Register
To register for any sport with the Fox-Rok Athletic Association go to the "home page" of this website and click on “Register” that is located in the upper right hand corner.  Or click on the registration tab that is located under the desired sport.  You will then need to click on “Create New Account or just “Login” if you have already created an account.  As a reminder, you must first have an account before you can register your child/children.  The process is easy.  
  

Once you have created an account, you then need to list your child/children before you can choose a program to play in.  Select “Add Participant.”  Enter the child’s name and complete all of the required fields.  If you have more children to register, don’t select “Next.”  Select “Add Another Participate.”  Once you have added all of your children you should select “Next.”

After you have entered all of your children only then will the system allow you to select the available program for that child or children.  Make your selection.  Continue to complete the necessary fields until you have completed your order.  You will receive an email confirmation after you have successfully completed the process.           

After the first time you register your child/children the system will remember your information!  You will only need to update a few lines as opposed to starting from scratch when registering for all other Fox-Rok sports.  

Please note, if you want to coach or volunteer in any way you must create an account online and state your interest.  The program is set up to ask if you have a desire to volunteer and in what role.   

To get on the mailing list you must create an account online.


Concerning Registrations!

Registration cutoff dates are established mainly to ensure that uniforms and the necessary equipment needs can be identified and ordered in time to be received before the start of the playing season.  This is the case for each sport offering at Fox-Rok A.A.  Occasionally we have situations where we may require additional players to prevent a team or teams from folding and will solicit players by posting these openings on our website.  That is the only time we will accept registrations after the established cutoff date.  This website provides ample notice time for registration of all sports.  On our website, at the top of each sport page, it states the month of when registrations are held and the duration of the season.  It is provided for your planning purposes.
