Everything is provided by Urban Rec, just bring your bad-ass self and some fun loving friends.

At this event you will be matched with other team mates and play a couple of Flag Gridiron games. Don't worry, we will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know. Beginners are always welcome and those that have played before are welcome to come down and check out why Urban Rec is different from your ordinary American Football league.
