The Maine Girls Flag Football League started small — just six girls signed up in 2016 under the mentorship of coach Mony Hang. Since then, enthusiasm and participation in the league has grown a lot. Once Hang saw how much team camaraderie the girls showed both on and off the field, he knew he wanted to expand the program. In 2021, the league boasts 12 teams, two divisions, coaches, sponsors and 100 girls who suit up every Saturday morning.

Just come out and play.”For more information on this year’s season and how to sign up visit: https://www.mainegirlsflagfootball.com/.
