More than 60 boys and girls in grades 3-6 gathered at the “Pasture of Pain” for some 7-on-7 flag football action.
The league is pure pick-up football, there are no set teams or practices. Players are divided into new teams each week and play using the sidelines as end zones. The games are passing only.
Eisenhower coaches and players are on hand to provide instruction and officiate the games.
