Villages Football Association 7 on 7 Passing League

Villages Football Association is pleased to announce the inaugural season of the Villages Football Association 7 on 7 Passing League!

This league is intended to service our older kids as the majority of our flag football registrants are 10 years old and under.

In a nutshell, this program is for rising 6th graders (those that are currently in the 5th grade) through kids that are 17 years of age.  The program is targeted at players that are serious about improving skills that will directly translate to 11 on 11 tackle football and more specifically the passing game.  To avoid any confusion, this is NOT a tackle football league.
