Girls Flag Football

We are making HISTORY!

The Westfield PAL Girls Flag Football League will be ringing in our Inaugural Season September 2022. We are among the first girls flag football programs in NJ and excited to bring this sport to our town. Interest in girls flag football is exploding worldwide, and it is being proposed as an Olympic sport for 2028. Nike and the NY Jets are sponsoring Girls High School Flag Football as a varsity sport, and we know it is on the horizon here in Westfield!

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower girls to work together as a team in a fun and safe (non-contact) environment while developing a love of flag football. Our league supports positive values and promotes health, wellness and self-esteem to inspire and motivate girls to succeed both on and off the field. 

We are looking to grow Girls Flag Football in Westfield, provide athletic gear, training for coaches and team building activities. Our league will also promote personal health and continue to enhance the program and overall experience. In recognition of our important role in the community, we will be partnering with local charities that share our mission.

Spring Minicamps

With our Inaugural Season right around the corner, the Westfield PAL is excited to announce 2 Girls Flag Football Minicamps. We had great success with our minicamp this Fall, and can’t wait to see all the girls come out to play flag football. The day of fun will provide instruction focusing on passing, catching, rushing and defense, while allowing the girls to enjoy time with their friends, neighbors and classmates. No prior knowledge or football experience is necessary. Please join us!

Volunteer, Donation and Sponsorship Opportunities

We have big plans and ideas for the upcoming Westfield PAL Girls Flag Football season and beyond, which can only be achieved through community support and involvement. Parent volunteers and coaches are the backbone of any youth sports program, and we are looking for moms, dads and teens to volunteer their time to help make the program a huge success. We would like to have at least one female coach on every team. 

To further support our mission and enhance the program, we are seeking donations and sponsorships.

If interested in volunteer, donation and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kelly Hantman at [email protected]
