Extend the Monroe Park & Rec youth flag football program through 8th grade
This petition made change with 99 supporters!
Currently, the Parks and Recreation flag football program is only offered through 6th grade. I am petitioning in hopes that the age limit be extended to include 7th and 8th grade, for both girls and boys.
Many kids still love to play flag football and will no longer be able to because they are too old.
Some kids will choose not to play tackle football for a variety of reasons including the risk of concussions and other serious injuries. Dr. Robert Cantu, a neurosurgeon and senior medical adviser to the NFL, says that young brains are significantly more vulnerable to the hits experienced in tackle football, advising families with children to avoid tackle football and stick with flag football through age 14.
Please sign this petition, if you support the extension of the Parks and Recreation flag football program through 8th grade.
