The ZYEP Performance Academy NFL Flag Football League officially kicked off on September 16, 2018 at the Zuni Tribal Fairgrounds. After the grand opening of Ho'n A:wan Park, the games were played on the new turf field. The last game day was played on November 4, 2018. The league consists of 16 teams split between two age groups, Zuni (ages 9-11) and Shiwi (ages 6-8). The teams are based on NFL teams. Each child was presented with a quality water bottle and encouraged to only drink water. During each game day, the players were treated to a healthy snack provided by ZYEP. Many of the families and community members came to support their youth. It has been a great season for all involved!
