Sandy Springs Youth Sports offers Flag and Advanced Flag Football programs for players in Kindergarten through 7th grade.
Important Note about age groups.
In the past, we have never had enough players to form a 6th /7th grade league, so we combined them with the 4th/5th grade league. To improve safety in that league, we have changed the age groups and added league names. The new leagues will be as follows:
Rookie Division: This is a Flag league for pre-k – 1st graders
Division II (D2): This is an Advanced Flag League for 2nd – 4th graders (Monday Practices)
Division I (D1): This is an Advanced Flag League for 5th – 7th graders (Wednesday Practices)
**We will move players up or down a division if there are safety concerns for the division they should be in based on their grade.
