Who and What is First Down Flag Football?

My name is Robert Duray and I am the Director of First Down Youth Flag Football.  I am a teacher and have coached high school football for 14 years.   I have been very involved in youth and adult flag football on the westside of Cleveland. I have played in and directed several flag football leagues and camps across Northeast Ohio. The goal of First Down Youth Flag Football is to provide a safe, positive and fun environment for kids to stay active and learn the game of football during the winter months.   The league will provide kids in Summit County and surrounding areas an opportunity to continue to play flag football after the rec and YMCA leagues are finished.  

The league is set up for kids 5-10 years of age and broken down into 3 divisions (5-6, 7-8, 9-10) You can enter individually and we will place your child appropriately or enter as a whole team.  We encourage your child to play with his friends and a parent or two to voluntarly coach the team.
