More Schools Join PAL Fall Flag Football Season

The Police Athletic League has announced that several local schools will participate in this year’s flag football league, including St. Rose of Lima, St. Mary’s and St. John’s Boys Home.

Coach Greg Carter is extremely pleased with the turnout of participants and school administrators. “The kids, once they see what flag football is – no tackle, no blocking – they really enjoy the game,” said Carter. “Fun and safety are our major concerns.”

Coach Carter also wishes to point out that girls 6-14 years old are welcomed to play. Games will be played at Riis Park, Beach Channel High School Field, Beach 17 Street and possibly Bayswater Park. Any child between the ages of 6-14 may play. Any school and/or youth interested in playing PAL flag football is encouraged to contact the Rockaway Sports Association. It’s free to play.

St. Mary’s Star of The Sea is excited about their students playing in the PAL flag football league this year. Pictured, left to right: Dominick Del Vecchio, gym teacher; Angela Brucia, school principal and coach David Herd.
