The NFL and Boys & Girls Clubs of America have partnered to remove access barriers and increase flag football participation across the country.
Through the partnership, more than 100,000 kids and teens, both boys and girls, ages 6-18 have been introduced to the fundamentals of flag football and join the NFL FLAG powered by USA Football
The NFL, with the support of all 32 Teams, provided grants to local Boys & Girls Club locations including BGCAS. For our region, BGCAS was partnered
with the San Francisco 49ers Foundation and 49ers PREP.
Last Tuesday (11/23), BGCAS held its first ever "PREP Football" event and Thanksgiving dinner for Club Members at Lion's Park.Over 70 youth participated
in the inaugural flag football program that had been delayed for over a year due to COVID-19.
Furthering BGCAS' and the 49ers PREP's mission of empowering youth to lead healthy lifestyles, BGCAS received equipment, support for field maintenance,
training for coaches and officials, and program materials. Games were held for different age groups and prizes were awarded for outstanding players.
Thank you/Fa'afetai tele lava 49ers for making this a very special Thanksgiving for our kids!! We look forward to continuing this great partnership and
expanding our local Flag Football program.
