Safety

Safety comes first. Five Star Flag Football wants families to rest assured their children are safe. It is important that parents/guardians provide us with necessary medical information when filling out the registration packet and update us if there are changes. In the event of an emergency we want to be as prepared as possible to adequately handle the situation. Our staff members are trained in CPR/AED and First Aid. During program hours,  staff will make sure children are hydrated and nourished. Because some children might have nut allergies, we ask parents/guardians to please refrain from sending any food or snacks containing nuts.  It is mandatory for children to wear mouth guards while participating.

Children will be required to stay on Gordon Field or Gosman Athletic Center (in the case of bad weather) and will always be attended. Children will be walked to and from bathrooms, concession areas, and athletic training room. Children will not be allowed to stray off the field or out of the athletic center. Children must remain on site throughout the program hours unless otherwise arranged in writing between parent/guardian and staff.

Program Hours

Program hours are between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Drop off between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM. Pick up between 3:00 PM and 3:30 PM.

A backpack to keep belongings together is a good idea.  *Mouth guards will be available for purchase throughout the duration of the program.
