Washington Redskins and Coca Cola to Host Youth Flag Football Tournament in Richmond

This event is not open to the public.

RICHMOND, Va. – The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation will host the Get the Ball Rolling Flag Football Tournament presented by Coca-Cola at St. Christopher's Boys School (711 St. Christopher's Rd., Richmond, Va.) on Tuesday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Approximately 100 local youth will take part in the flag football tournament as an extension of NFL FLAG, the premier youth football league for boys and girls ages 5-17 powered by USA Football. Through NFL FLAG, players benefit by being physically active through non-contact, continuous action while learning the fundamentals of football, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship.

Get the Ball Rolling Flag Football Tournament participants will complete warm-up drills before kicking off group-style tournament play on two separate fields. The Super Bowl Championship game will be hosted in the stadium.

Coca-Cola's Get the Ball Rolling initiative is a program that encourages active, healthy living with our nation's youth. The company has partnered with the Redskins and other Washington, D.C. area professional sports teams since 2010 to host free activity clinics in the D.C., Virginia and Maryland area. Get the Ball Rolling is part of Coca-Cola's commitment to encourage healthy living and inspire consumers to rediscover the joy of being active.
