That's right, folks!
Too many of us have been affected by cancer. It's a 6-letter word that strikes fear and terror. So FLFA is joining the fight to find a cure! We are kicking October off with a crusade to raise money for research, providing wigs, warm hats, care packages, anything to help spread the HOPE!
We also invite all of our athletes, families, and fans to dress in PINK on Saturday, September 30th and on Sunday, October 15th. Let's fill our field with a sea of PINK in honor of this month and all of the warriors, caregivers, families, and loved ones affected by Breast Cancer!
Beginning on September 30th, we will be selling custom PINK ribbons that will hang on our fence for the duration of the month. The minimum donation we are asking for is $5 per ribbon. You can definitely donate more or purchase more custom ribbons! Last year, we were able to donate $500 to a major local hospital. Let's see if we can top that donation!
Order your ribbons at our home games and select practices during the month. Or you can purchase them here:

ABOUT PEP RALLY:
Pep Rally is on Friday, September 22nd!
There will be practices on every inch of the field before 7:30 PM.
For Families and Spectators:
Families and spectators will not be able to come on to the field until ALL athletes are safely settled. Please try not crowd the gate. Athletes, coaches, and volunteers setting up for Pep Rally will need to get through.
For our Flag families:
With the night activities beginning at 7:30 ish, it can tend to be a little bit later of a night for the family. However, we usually celebrate the Flag teams, first.
Food and the Snack Stand:
You may pre-order your dinner for the night. All pre-orders must be made by 3PM on Thursday, September 21st. Please place your orders here at: https://flfapeprallyorders.cheddarup.com
Meals can be picked up on Friday (9/22), beginning at 7 PM from the snack stand. Items will also be available for purchase for regular price at the snack stand. The lines may be longer (just a heads up).
Forecast (as of this moment on 9/20) is calling for 25% chance of rain, with night temperatures slipping into the upper/mid 50's. Please dress accordingly. Pep Rally has been kind of cold the past couple of years!
Pep Rally! It's the one time that the ENTIRE program comes together! Our Athletes are celebrated! Usually it's a pretty cool night, temperature wise!
Each squad/team is announced ... from our littlest Flag athletes to our teenage Seniors!
Come dine with us on Friday Night and Pre-order your dinner! You beat the lines and have more time to enjoy! All pre-orders are due by 3 PM on Thursday, 9/21. Meals will be ready for pick up on Friday at 7 PM. You can order your meal at:
FLFA Tackles Breast Cancer:
Each October, for the past couple of years, our program has chosen to recognize something that affects all - Cancer. Specifically, Breast Cancer. We would be hard pressed to find someone that cancer has not touched. With each passing year, we have raised more money to help sponsor a local hospital.
Last year, we were able to donate $500 to Valley Hospital. This year, we are looking to write a bigger check! We cannot do it without YOU!
Please consider purchasing a Pink Ribbon, for a $5 donation, that can be personalized with a message of your choosing. If each FLFA athlete purchases 1 pink ribbon, writes 1 special message on it, and hangs it on the fence, we would be able to donate $1500 to a worthy organization. That’s 3 times the amount of last year’s donation!
Our FLFA Tackles Breast Cancer Committee will begin selling custom ribbons on Monday, September 18th! Please use the order form at the bottom of this post (a pdf file) if you want to use cash or check OR go to http://flfatacklesbreastcancer2023.cheddarup.com (to donate via credit card).
They will be selling Pink Ribbons through October! Cash or check is being accepted! Our Pink Out dates are Saturday, September 30th and Sunday October 15th! Those are the dates that we are looking to celebrate our warriors and caregivers, and comfort and recognize the ones taken too soon. Wear all of the pink you can find!

Happy Monday, FLFA Athletes and Families!
Welcome to Week 3 and Pep Rally Week!
We are definitely sliding into the heart of the 2023 Season! With 5 more weeks left before the end! What does this means??
It means that all of our FLFA families have only 5 more opportunities to finish up their 6 hours of service (2 hours, if you are a strictly Flag Family). We definitely need more volunteers for our Game Day Committee! You can sign up for chains or field security (with a nifty vest!)! Congratulations to the families done with their volunteer service obligation! We thank you for your time and commitment!!!
Pep Rally will be held on Friday, September 22nd. The forecast is calling for clear skies and temperatures reaching the mid 50’s. SO BUNDLE UP! Bring your blankets. Wear your boots. Double your socks and pants! Triple up on shirts!
All levels for both Football and Cheer will be practicing on the field at the same time. It is the 1st and only time all teams and squads are together. You will be able to admire the sheer size of our programing! It is an awesome sight!
Practice on Friday will end at 7:15 PM so that we may start Pep Rally at 7:30 PM. Yes, it take a little while for all of the squads to get in position. So families will not be allowed on to the field until all teams are safely in position. Please do not crowd the gate. There is PLENTY of room for everyone!
Our awesome kitchen is putting together a great menu! You will be able to beat the crowd by preordering your family’s dinner and having it ready for pick up in our kitchen! We will be getting that menu to you asap! Be on the look out
