Carbonite Sports Youth Flag Football - official league of NFL Flag Football

Updated: January 1, 2021

Welcome to 2021!

Our goal is to get back to playing youth sports in 2021. However, at this point, we do not have any specific registration programs set. Our plan is to make a final decision as we move towards the end of January, so that we don’t get our players’ hopes up for a spring program, only to have to cancel if the Covid-19 situation changes.

We appreciate your patience and understanding - like you, we want to get back to some sense of normal and get our kids playing flag football again!

We will email details to everyone on our mailing list, and post registration details on Facebook, once we have registration set up. The plan for 2021 would be similar to past seasons - games on Saturdays, hosted in River Falls. Spring season would run mid-April through early June. Fall season would run September through October.


If you want to be added to our email list and receive information on our 2021 dates and registration, please email
