Women's Flag Football Comes to Beaver Nation

Women's Flag Football Comes to Beaver Nation

PRATT, Kan.- Pratt Community College was recently notified by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) that it has been awarded a $10,000 grant towards establishing Women’s Flag Football as a competitive sport. The grant is part of a major initiative sponsored by the National Football League (NFL) in promoting Women’s Flag Football. The NJCAA has identified women’s flag football as an “emerging sport” and is encouraging community colleges to consider adding the program.

At the board of trustees meeting on Monday, September 20th the trustees officially approved the addition of Women’s Flag Football for the 2022-23 school year.

“PCC is always looking at adding unique opportunities for students to enroll, such as E-Sports, Rodeo, Shooting Sports and now Women’s Flag Football,” Calvert added. “The research also supports that students involved in activities or sports tend to be more successful students and anything we can do to further enhance student success, we will strongly consider”.

Pratt Community College athletic director Tim Swartzendruber is firm in his belief that the addition of women’s flag football can only be a net positive for the institution.

“This is very exciting for Pratt Community College! We are one of a select few to receive this grant and offering this up and coming sport,” said Swartzendruber. “I believe we can set ourselves apart by offering this innovative program and certainly look forward to the first ever Women’s Flag Football games at the new Track and Soccer Complex.”

The plans moving forward are to post the head coach position in the next few weeks and have someone hired in December with that individual starting January 1st. The official season for women’s flag football will begin in March of 2023.
