Important News Regarding PRF Football Program

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 include 5on5 format instead of the 8on8 format and reduced field sizes for more competitive play. The new set of rules are posted on the League Info/Rules.

This year, PRF tackle program has joined the Kalamazoo Valley Rocket Football League (KVRFL). Due to continuing decline in tackle participation, the program was ready for a new direction that will generate full tackle teams at both grade divisions and improve the competitive play with games versus other area rocket programs. With this change, there will be eligibility restrictions in the tackle divisions. Participants must be a Portage resident or attend a Portage area school. Flag football will continue under the PRF rules and remain open to all youths in Portage and greater Kalamazoo area.
