Team Announcement Night! Here's a little preview of the team names we have this season. Which team will you land on?!
Can the Seahawks win another Super Bowl?! Will the Patriots make it to the Super Bowl this season? Not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 chances for the Patriots this season! A Patriots team in each age division is a league first! (sorry high school division, no Patriots for you!)
Yes we did say high school division, as this season will feature our first 15-17 age division in LRFFL history! Got a couple of lightning bolts (Chargers) in 4-6 & 15-17 division this season, and only fitting that the Giants are playing in the 15-17 division!
Da Bears are back, not once but twice (6-8 & 9-11), and sorry to say, but so are the JETS!! What age division is the question everyone wants to know (or avoid) … J-E-T-S!
Broncos were a tough act to corral, everybody loves the jerseys and none were to be had anywhere!
We have the Redskins now in the 12-14 division; no longer the 4-6 … talk about going from a rookie to a veteran!
Browns & Steelers will be representing the AFC North and the LRFFL 9-11 division … Titans, Texans and Jaguars AFC South and LRFFL 6-8 division.
We’ve got Buccaneers and Raiders (watch out Peter Pan …) and high flying Cardinals and Eagles.
Speaking of flying, watch out for a lot of blue and brown footballs soaring through the air this season!
The 49ers will be digging for Playoff gold, and the Rams will look to lock horns with the Vikings in the 9-11 division and the Chiefs in the 9-11 will represent our Native Americans …
Dolphins looking to flip and swim and talk their way to the Super Bowl … the Lions in the 12-14 and Panthers in the 9-11 will be hard to cage.
The 6-8 Bills and Saints will both be looking to get back to the Super Bowl and trying to keep step as they march towards the post-season.
A TOTAL OF 34 TEAMS THIS SEASON – THE MOST EVER IN LRFFL HISTORY!
We are very saddened to say we have lost one of our own. John Thompson passed in the arms of his parents early this morning. He was loved by many not only in the LRFFL family but throughout the Lakes Region community.
He will be forever missed and loved by those who had the pleasure of meeting him. #JBT

“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a civilization work.” Vince Lombardi, legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers, who won the first two NFL Super Bowls. The Super Bowl Trophy is named after him.
The goal of the LRFFL is to build the confidence of our players. Not by them being the best, but by them doing their individual best to help their team achieve a goal. We are not teaching our players how to win games; we are teaching them how to play the game of football. The ultimate team sport, football requires that all players work together as a team to accomplish a goal.
At LRFFL, we understand that our players are children first, athletes second. We are focused on creating a fun, positive, values-based environment where children and families can enjoy the sport of flag football in life’s proper context.
Tom Brady played flag football up until his freshman year of high school.
The Manning Brothers cut their teeth on the flag football field before putting the pads on.
