Texas church Prestonwood Baptist Church will host the first Football ‘N’ America league, a co-ed flag football program for youth in Texas.

The church’s sports outreach ministry, Prestonwood Sports Organization, is partnering with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees as part of the program, CBN News reports.

The church’s Football ‘N’ America league is for youth in kindergarten through 4th grade. The season starts Saturday, Sept. 14.

“We stress the importance of teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship while promoting the fundamentals of the great game of football in a fun, family-friendly, safe and competitive environment,” the Play FNA website says.

Prestonwood Sports Organization says their mission is to promote competitive play in a positive environment while helping youth develop spiritually, physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.

FNA’s motto is “Friends, Family and Football.”

“Flag football is something I played until my freshman year of high school,” Brees shared in a promotional video on the organization’s website. “I learned the fundamentals of the game through flag football and I developed my passion for the game by participating in it.”
