PAL taking tackle, flag football registrations now

The Huntington Police Athletic League is currently accepting registrations for its tackle and flag football leagues.

The PAL prefers that all registrations be submitted by Friday, July 28. Having registrations turned in by that date makes it easier for the league to assign players to teams, says the PAL’s Tom Hughes. Despite that preference, registrations will be accepted after July 28.

The tackle league is open to children ages 9 through 12. Players must weigh a minimum of 65 pounds.

The flag football league features four age groups: 5 and 6-year-olds; 7 and 8-year-olds; 9 and 10-year-olds; and 11 and 12-year-olds.

There is a registration fee for both leagues, which is payable via credit card or check.

Opening day for both leagues is Sept. 9.
