COACHES NEEDED! We welcome parent coaches and parent volunteers. Having several coaches for every team helps players develop by the individual attention they get. Parent volunteers can also help the team in a number of ways.  If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to the Flag Football Commissioner, Travis Pinkelman at

IMPORTANT: Due to the passage of LB260, the Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act, we are required to provide you with the Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet (link below). Please read it and review it with the athlete prior to registering.  As part of the registration process you and the athlete you are registering will be required to acknowledge receipt of this information.
