Two Southlake-Based Teams Made it to the 2022 Under the Lights Flag Football National Championships!

The Under Armour Under the Lights Flag Football program is one of our incredible Athletics programs available to our community.

Under the Lights Flag Football, powered by Under Armour, is a national youth flag football league for kids in K-8th grades. Fun is guaranteed, and they emphasize promoting a competitive, confidence-building, non-contact experience for boys and girls of all skill levels.

After a fun and challenging summer season, our teams headed to the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Our Flag Football teams competed in the 2022 Under the Lights Flag Football National Championships from July 22-24, 2022. Two of our Southlake teams took home the Championship Title this year.

The Miami Dolphins, coached by Ryan Aldridge, finished 7-1 in their Division and won the 3-4th Grade Playoffs in dominating fashion with a 35-0 win over the San Francisco 49’ers, a 42-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys, and a 41-6-win vs. the Baltimore Ravens in the Championship game.

The New England Patriots, coached by Doug Phillips, finished division play 8-0 and won their two games (after a first-round bye) 26-20 over the Las Vegas Raiders and 18-0 over the Dallas Cowboys in the Championship game.

We are proud of our Southlake-based teams for taking home the Championships this summer! The fun’s not over yet, however!
