Young football fans can now enjoy the fun and excitement of America’s favorite sport starting this fall as Hill House announces the city’s first NFL Flag football league. Open to children in kindergarten through the seventh grade, this citywide league will take place on Sunday mornings at Clemente Field on the Emmanuel College Campus in Back Bay.

“Our mission is to ensure that children living in the city have the opportunity to participate in the best sports programs possible,” said Hill House Program Director Sam Renshaw. “With much research coming out about the concussion dangers of playing full-contact football at this age, we are delighted to launch this NFL Flag option so that kids can have a fun and safe athletic experience.”
