Wesleyan School Announces New Co-Ed Community Flag Football League


Wesleyan School has announced a new community flag football league. The league is an opportunity for kindergarten through fifth grade boys and girls to learn the fundamentals of football in a fun, safe, and encouraging environment.

“For the community, the league allows children to learn football skills, develop teamwork abilities, and play in a safe, nurturing environment regardless of where they attend school,” said Kelly Weatherly, Director of Auxiliary Programs and Outreach.

“For our current families, the new league serves as part of our continued commitment to offer a convenient, 12-month experience rather than having to take your children to another league across town.”
 
The flag football league begins on Saturday, September 8, and runs for eight weeks. Practices and games will be held on Wesleyan’s campus, located in Peachtree Corners, on Saturday mornings. 
 
The new flag football program is the newest addition to Wesleyan’s community league program.
 
The school also hosts a basketball league, now in its 15th year, where hundreds of elementary-aged students play. The basketball league includes children from Peachtree Corners, Dunwoody, Brookhaven, Norcross, Johns Creek, Roswell, Alpharetta, Suwanee, and Duluth.
