Lenape Valley Patriots Flag Football & Cheerleading
The Lenape Valley Patriots Football & Cheerleading Flag Program is made up of children from Byram Township, Stanhope and Netcong Borough Schools, grades Kindergarten through 2nd.
The Flag Football Teams, when feasible, will have a maximum of 8-9 players per team and there is no weight limit. The format played is 5 vs 5 but depending on the size of each team, it will be 7 vs 7. Each team will have a minimum of two practices per week throughout the month of August and a minimum of one game per week throughout the season which begins in September. All games will be played on one of our home football fields.
The Flag Cheerleading Teams will vary, base on the number of girls registered. The cheerleaders will practice approximately three times a week throughout the month of August and cheer in all flag games.
Every Flag Football Player and Cheerleader will be issued a uniform. These uniforms are handed out at the beginning of the season and must be returned at the end of the season.
For those who are looking to send their son or daughter to a flag football camp, the Lenape Valley Patriots Program hosts its own Flag Football Camp. The camp location is at CO Johnson Field in Byram Twp or Indians Field in Netcong Borough. The camp is open to any child entering into the flag program or any child who is interested in trying out flag football. All participants must be entering into Kindergarten, 1st grade or 2nd grade. Dates for the camp will be announced at the end of the school year. (2016 Camp canceled - 2017 Camp information will be published upon completion of the 2016 season)
