Flag Football


Athletics Division
(336) 222-5030

Youth flag football is offered for girls and boys ages 5 - 14. Must be 5 by November 1st of the playing year.

Flag football is a great opportunity for kids to display their skills without the hard contact. Participants will wear belts with flags attached, which the defensive team must remove from the ball carrier to end a down. No experience is necessary.

BRPD is a part of the NFL Flag Football program. Visit their website for more information, www.nflflag.com

Check out the NEW & EASY way to Register with CivicRec! 
Burlington Recreation and Parks is now partnering with CivicRec to offer a cloud-based recreation management tool to allow citizens greater visibility of activities, classes, programs, sports leagues, and more that are offered by the department with more convenient online registration and payment options. 

Program registrations and facility rentals through CivicRec are live now! Users are encouraged to set up an account and browse the current programs, activities, and rental offerings. Please note many programs and facility rentals are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Everyone will be a new user in CivcRec, even if a user had an account on ActiveNet, the previous online registration platform. All new users will need to create an account in CivicRec to register for activities or rent facilities. When registering your child for sports, you will no longer need to present your child's birth certificate upon sign up. If you are a new player, you will be asked to provide your child's birth certificate to your child's coach prior to the start of games.

If previous ActiveNet users need to access their account information or print receipts for tax purposes, the site will be available here through February 28. After that date, ActiveNet will no longer be available and user accounts will be deleted.
