S.T.U.S.A. to Start Flag Football Leagues

By Andrew Luberda

At its inception in 2009, the San Tan United Sports Academy (STUSA) provided soccer training to local area youths, eventually creating a successful soccer league in Jan. 2012. Now the academy is moving into flag football, establishing respective adult and youth leagues that will begin play on Apr. 6, 2013.

According to youth soccer league director Rico Cruz, it was only a matter of time before the academy expanded to other sports.

“The vision was always to be a multi-sport organization,” Cruz said.

Registration for both leagues is Mar. 2, 2013 and can be done in person at Rebecca Park at Rancho Bella Vista South.  League representatives will be available at the park from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Interested participants are encouraged to visit the STUSA website at SanTanSports.com  to download the registration form.

For those who are unable to register in person on Mar. 2, they can download the form, fill it out, and return it via email to info@santansports.com.  Payment must be received before the league starts.

The registration fee for youth players is $40 per child. Cruz said the academy is encouraging team registrations for the adult league, the fee for which is $250. There is a 10-player limit per team.

Adults who wish to participate and are not part of a team are also eligible to register. Those adults, called “free agents” by Cruz, will be placed together to form teams. Single adult registration is also $40.

The registration fee includes eight games, a jersey, a team photo, and an award medal at the end of the season. All games, for both leagues, will be played on Saturdays at Oasis at Magic Ranch.

Cruz explained the registration fee is lower than other flag football leagues in an effort to make sure everyone has an opportunity to play.

Cruz also emphasized the lower cost does not reflect any less quality or professionalism. Participants can expect the same dedication, expertise and professionalism they’re accustomed to in other academy programs and leagues.

Additional information can be found by phone at 480-442-GOAL or online at SanTanSports.com and Facebook.com/SanTanSports.
