Dolphins flag football
The Miami Dolphins hosted their annual Girls High School Flag Football Jamboree, presented by Under Armour at the Doctor’s Hospital Training Facility in Davie.
Approximately 400 student athletes participated in the 14-game event. The Jamboree, a follow-up to the girls’ flag football clinic, was a success, as 28 of the top programs from around South Florida played in the annual kick-off of the season.
“We had another successful event this year,” said Twan Russell, Miami Dolphins Director of Youth Programs. “Every year, the participation continues to grow. This shows how much girls’ flag football has evolved as a sport. We really enjoy hosting the ladies at our facility and look forward to seeing them again next year.”
Since 1997, the Dolphins and the Broward County Athletic Association have partnered in these games. Started with just six teams, the Jamboree has grown with teams from Broward and Miami-Dade counties including Mater Academy, Mater Lakes, Monsignor Pace and Somerset South.
“I think that the games were very exciting, and the kids had a good time out here,” said Rocky Gillis, BCAA Athletic Director. “It adds to the momentum that the teams need going into the season. Overall, the event was very successful.”
The BCAA was one of first conferences in Florida that went full force with girls’ flag football 15 years ago. With the Jamboree, the girls prepare for the upcoming season while competing in a professional football team’s training facility.
