In 2019, PRF’s flag program joined with the NFLFlag organization, which gave us new flag jerseys and flag belts. In 2020, PRF adopted the NFLFlag rule book with some exceptions and modifications in the interest of PRF. The flag format will continue as last season, 2021, with the 5on5 format and reduced field sizes for more competitive play. The new set of rules are posted on the League Info/RulesFlag football participation will remain open to all youths in Portage and greater Kalamazoo area.

PRF 2021 tackle season was the inaugural season with the Kalamazoo Valley Rocket Football League (KVRFL). Due to continuing decline in tackle participation, the program was ready for a new direction in a league with games versus other area rocket programs. And what an exciting 2021 season! Teams experienced home games at our two Portage high school football fields along with games under the lights and at different venues. 2022 tackle season will continue under the same eligibility restrictions: resident in the Portage Public School district or attend a school within the city of Portage. We are working on bringing back a 7th week of games, similar to our old championship week, which would include games between the PRF teams at each division (stay tuned for more information). 

We look forward to another exciting football season for both flag and tackle participants.
