A new flag football league is coming to Pompano Beach. The City of Pompano Beach Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with National Flag Football to offer flag football at North Pompano Park starting on March 15. The objective of the program is to teach football skills to children age four to 14, according to Francis Meram, executive director of the program. The young players will be taught the basics of football such as throwing and catching. The idea is to help educate young people about football and make the game fun. There will be no tackling and so concussions are unlikely.
Also, National Flag Football donated flag football equipment to Broward elementary schools. Each school is also receiving a curriculum guide to help physical education teachers incorporate flag football activities into their program. This curriculum helps schools meet the Florida Benchmark PE Standards that require PE teachers to cover the fundamentals of any game they teach to small groups. The National Flag Football League hosted training sessions for teachers.
Families who want to have a safe trick or treating experience will want to participate in the Trunk or Treat event at Pompano Beach Community Park on October 24 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Kids will be able to get candy from decorated cars and trucks. There will be a bounce house, haunted bus, a Moonlight Maze, games and other fun activities. There will also be a contest for the best decorated car and the best costume.
