Flag football is back in Cloverdale after a two-year absence.

The Cloverdale Community Football Association (CCFA) began its 2022 spring flag football season on April 23 in Coquitlam.

Cloverdale has eight teams competing in divisions ranging from U8 to U16.

“After two years of COVID shutdown, we have kicked off the 2022 flag season in downtown Coquitlam,” said CCFA President Yeera Sami.

Sami said the opening week mini-tournament was a success for athletes in the region. “Our teams worked well”

Cloverdale will host the second jamboree of the season on Saturday April 30 at Cloverdale Athletic Park.

“There will be one hundred and sixty-four teams participating in the U8 to U19 divisions,” added Sami.

He said matches only last 25 minutes and all teams will play at least four matches at the jamboree.

Cloverdale Jamboree matches begin at 9 a.m. at Cloverdale Athletic Park and run all day until 7 p.m.

Sami said they will be using both synthetic and grass pitches at CAP, so there will be matches throughout the park.

“The BC Lions will be there with players and cheerleaders,” added Sami. “There will also be giveaways and ticket sales.”
