Flag Football

Here at BG Upward we pride ourselves on player experience and have been fortunate enough to see the fruits of this through the growth of our league. We have around 180 players and 32 coaches each year and 3 rounds of games on Saturday mornings. Our league is 100% volunteer based and we have some of the most upstanding and devoted volunteers around. We are first and foremost a Christian organization bringing the hope of the gospel through half time devotionals and biblical principles exemplified through our coaches and volunteers.
