With the ever changing landscape of youth football in America, we here at the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club are changing with times. Beginning this upcoming football season, NBGC youth football program will now offer flag football for two of our three divisions. Flag football will now be offered for Division III (1st-2nd grade) as well as Division II (3rd-4th grade). Our Division I program (5th-7th grade) will remain tackle football. Our goal at NBGC is to encourage fun, safe, and sustaining programs that can be enjoyed by our island's youth for years to come. Both of the flag football leagues that will be offered here at The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club will consist of a structured league, with comprehensive practices and games to help build our participant's knowledge of football fundamentals. We will offer an early registration period for all football leagues on August 28th-29th from 4:00- 5:00 at The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club.
