Upward Flag Football is a ministry designed to use flag football to teach each child about SALVATION, CHARACTER, and SELF-ESTEEM as they learn the skills of the game of flag football.
Upward Flag Football is for players Kindergarten through Grade 8. Many players participate in the Upward Sports programs with First Baptist Oviedo from around the community. You can learn more about Upward Sports at Upward.org.
This our first season for flag football at First Baptist Oviedo, teams will be divided by grade and gender depending on the number of registrants. Each team will have one practice during the week, on Tuesday or Thursday, and a game each Saturday. The season will include 6-8 games as the schedule permits.
