Week two in the booksPosted September 15, 2014
Week two of the 2014 NFL flag football season is in the books. With a chill in the air, week two felt a bit more like October rather than September. It was also a welcome, after week one was one of the hottest days of the summer!
The players are getting better and working closely with their coaches and team members. NFL flag rules are a bit different than regular football, so this also takes a little getting use to.
Please continue to visit our website for schedules and standings along with any/all announcements concerning our league.

Westwood Flag Football: Welcome
Westwood Flag Football - NFL FLAG Mission Statement
Welcome to the Westwood Flag Football - NFL FLAG
Our mission is very simple, we create an atmosphere where children and their families can get together on Saturday mornings to have FUN! The players experience the fundamentals of football with emphasis on skills such as running, throwing and catching a football. We also want to instill self confidence while at the same time learning sportsmanship and team work. The league attempts not to conflict with any other program and is played early Saturday mornings. Practice schedules are limited which allows players to participate in other sporting, academic or social events. We want the kids to be getting their exercise rather than to be playing video games. We also do not keep records or have a formal play-off system. The philosophy is to allow the players to attend their games, have a good time with their friends, teammates and family members. Our games are competitive but they are not the most important part of their weekends.
Westwood Flag Football has been successfully operating since 1998 and we want to continue to have a place where kids can remember that they had a great time playing flag football!
