Are You Ready for Some Football?! The Sheriff’s USA Flag Football League had its first board meeting Thursday at Headquarters. So far, 167 boys and girls from Stone Corral, Elbow Creek and Ivanhoe Elementary schools have signed up to play. Sergeant Bobby Saldana says he expects to have 200 students in grades K-7 signed up before practice begins in March. This is a free program offered by the Sheriff’s Junior Explorer Youth Development Program, formerly known as the Sheriff’s PAL Program. Students may sign up through their schools or call Sgt. Saldana at (559) 687-7021. Games will be on Saturdays at Ivanhoe Elementary School. To help pay for the league, an NFL/TCSO flag football fundraiser game is planned for Jan. 19, 2019 at the Groppetti Community Stadium on the campus of Golden West High School. Please stay tuned for more information as the date approaches!
