Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency has opened registration for its inaugural season of the Women’s Flag Football Monday Night Lights.

"We have offered adult men’s flag football for many years, but decided this season we would offer a women’s flag football league," said the Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency athletic coordinator Camille Thomas. "Since the Georgia High School Association will begin offering girls flag football as a competition sport in 2020, we saw an opportunity to offer a league for those women and girls that are interested pursing the game."

Registration is now open for the first season of 7 versus 7 Women’s Flag Football in Cherokee County. Registration includes both teams and individuals.

All eight games will be played at Hobgood Park on the turf field, located at 6688 Bells Ferry Road in Woodstock. The games will be played on Monday nights. Participants must be 16 years of age or older. Cost per team is $550.

A free agent list that individuals can register for at no cost is also available. For those registered for the free agent list, the Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency will host a free agent night for free agents to form teams if they choose.

To register, go to www.playcherokee.org. Registration ends on Feb. 29 and the season begins on March 9.
