Flag practice is held at the Radnor High School fields; and at Teegarden Park off Cassatt Road in Berwyn, PA. The entrance is on Old State Road off Contention Lane.

The Wildcats provide flag belts and a game day flag jersey. Your child should also wear a protective cup and a removable mouth guard that you provide.

The coaches understand that some children may miss some practice time due to planned family vacations. Simply communicate that to your coach.

Typically Flag games are over in early November.
