Will add this to the West Seattle Weekend Lineup too, but wanted to share the entire announcement just in from King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson John Urquhart – a big football event in West Seattle tomorrow, presented by an organization led by both KCSO and Seattle Police – read on for details:
Sixteen local high school teams will compete in a Flag Football Jamboree tomorrow, Saturday April 18th. The games start at 4:00 PM.
There will be teams from the Muckleshoot and Tulalip tribes, Garfield and Rainier Valley area, South Park Community Center, the South Park Community Center, and the Kent School District’s Phoenix Academy.
The tournament is sponsored by the King County Sheriff’s Office and the Seattle Police Department through their Greater King County Police Activity League. In addition, NFL Youth Football has provided grant assistance.
The mission of the Police Activity League is to build partnerships with youth, police, and the community through athletic, educational and recreational activities designed to encourage and develop good citizenship and reduce juvenile delinquency.
This football jamboree is the beginning an eight-week long series of games which will include elementary, middle, and high schools kids from the inner-city as well as five tribal communities.
Sheriff Rahr will help kick off the first game and second game.
