ABOUT JUNIOR BUCS
Scheduled to begin in spring 2016, Junior Bucs will provide currently-existing boys, girls, and co-ed youth flag football leagues, as well as groups interested in forming or joining an official youth flag league, with resources to improve the quality of play while reinforcing important lessons of the game. All leagues and participating teams will be provided with official Junior Bucs reversible jerseys, commemorative certificates of achievement, and two complimentary tickets to a 2016 preseason Buccaneers game at Raymond James Stadium. In addition, coaches will receive NFL Flag rulebooks and coaches handbooks, which will provide a helpful guide for emphasizing a code of conduct, sportsmanship, fitness and conditioning, health and nutrition tips, fundamentals, practice plans, and more. 
 
Additional benefits will include potential opportunities to be recognized during home games at Raymond James Stadium, opportunities to play at One Buccaneer Place – the training facility of the Buccaneers – invitations to special events throughout the year, discounted Buccaneers tickets for Junior Bucs players’ family and friends, and recognition as an NFL Flag league in conjunction with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Junior Bucs is supported by NFL Flag, USA Football, and NFL PLAY 60.
