ALEXANDRIA Ontario – Glengarry Flag Football kicks off its inaugural season on January 22, 2016 at the Tim Horton’s Dome in Alexandria. This ten week program, offered by the Township of North Glengarry, will provide players aged nine and up a cost effective opportunity to enjoy this non-contact sport in a weather controlled environment.
Registration is $75 per player or $750 per team (max 10 players on a team) with $10 from every player registered going back towards supporting the Glengarry Gaels minor football program. Space is limited due to other bookings at the Dome, so registration will close once the league has maxed out its available hours – register early to avoid disappointment.
“The league will provide area residents of all ages with a good excuse to leave their homes to meet up with friends and get active during the long winter months. It’s a sport that has taken off in the region and we’re in the process of developing more activities for residents, therefore, Flag Football seemed like the logical place to start. Also, the low cost per player makes it more affordable for families that might typically shy away from athletics and these are some of the people we want to get engaged in our community. ” Terry Gilmer, Director of Recreation for the Township of North Glengarry.
Former NCAA football player at Kansas University, Dexter Linton, is doing his coop placement with the Township and is a big part of getting the league off the ground. He’ll be delivering the program and act as a resource for some of the younger players who are interested in learning more about the game. Originally from Texas, he is now enrolled in the Business Management program at Algonquin College and commuting from Ottawa.
