Bensenville Park District, Raiders partner for flag football

Sign up through March 22; practices begin March 26

Bensenville, Ill. (March 5, 2024) — The Bensenville Park District and Bensenville Raiders youth football program are joining forces for a spring flag football league for children between the ages of 5 and 14 in 2024.

“We are pleased to join with the Bensenville Raiders once again this year to provide this spring flag football league,” says Recreation Supervisor Breana Aponte. “The program offers another chance for children to stay active outside of our soccer leagues.”

The flag football league will be broken into distinct age groups based on enrollment, and teams will be determined based on skill level.

“Spring flag football is a great entry to the sport and also a chance for young players to develop their skills outside of the regular football season,” Raiders President Tye Brooks says. “We are looking forward to continuing the growth of football in Bensenville through our partnership with the park district.”

The Raiders’ mission is to teach football and to help youth on and off the football field. Teams will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with Saturday games (occasionally Sunday, if needed).  Practices will take place at locations, days and times determined by the coaches, and game times and locations will be determined later based on the number of players and teams.

The fee is $100 and includes player jerseys. Register at the Deer Grove Leisure Center, 1000 W. Wood Street, Bensenville, through March 22. Email for more information.
