Powder Puff Football Berlin High School Powder Puff Football is a unique opportunity for female student-athletes to create teams to play flag football together while raising money for local foundations. The goal is for the community to safely come together to remember loved ones and have fun participating in, coaching, cheerleading and spectating at the event while raising money for the community.

Every team member must sign up and purchase their jersey online. The cost of the jersey is $30.00 which includes a $10.00 donation to charity. Please be aware that because of COVID, the game can be postponed and/or canceled at any time; you are still doing a great thing for some great charities! Every team may have multiple coaches/managers who must also sign up and purchase a jersey; the coach will not be allowed to play in the game.

To register please visit the Powderpuff Football Registration form. For additional guidelines and information, see this Powder Puff documentRegistration must be completed by October 30th.
