PENNRIDGE GREENJACKETS

Football Info

The Pennridge Greenjackets offer three levels of football to the families of the Pennridge Community. Our boundaries are that of the Pennridge School District.

Flag Program:

The flag football program is a free non-competitive level of play for children that 5, 6, & 7 years old. It is generally the first experience that a child will have at football and we make every attempt to approach this level in that manner. Our Flag Coaches are also generally experiencing coaching for the first time.
