Registration open for PAL football leagues

Registration is open for the Contact Football and Flag Football leagues at the Police Athletic League, in Huntington.

There is a cost to participate in either league, which can be reduced by selling fund-raiser items.

The Contact Football league is open to children ages 9 to 12 years old as of Sept. 1. The minimum weight to participate is 65 pounds. Practices will begin the week of Aug. 19.

The Flag Football league is divided into the following age groups: 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-14. A child’s age as of Sept. 1 will determine which division they play in. Practices will begin the week of Aug. 19.

For children residing in Roanoke, Andrews or Warren, that location should be checked on the registration form, as area-specific teams will be formed, if possible. Practices will be held at those locations. Games will still be held on the PAL grounds on Saturdays.

Registration and payment can be completed online at www.huntingtonpal. net.

Paper registration forms are available at the Huntington Police Department, 300 Cherry St., and the PAL main building, 2101 Riverside Drive.

Completed forms can be turned in at either of those locations. Checks or money orders are the accepted forms of payment. No refunds will be issued.

The deadline to register is Friday, Aug. 2.

On Saturday, Aug. 10, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., the PAL will conduct weigh-ins and distribute equipment for the Contact Football league. Children intending to sell fund-raiser items should stop by the PAL that day as well.
