Capture the flag


NAUGATUCK — Naugy Sports Flag Football wrapped up its second year this week with some playoff action at Linden Park.

Naugy Sports, which is run by Dave Carbonaro and Will Gairing with the help of volunteer coaches, is a coed youth sports league. The flag football season runs in July and is open to children ages 6 to 14. Local high school and college students serve as referees for the games. About 120 children played this year on 15 teams, nearly double the amount of players from last year.

Gairing said the purpose of Naugy Sports is to get children active and involved in different sports. Each player on a flag football team gets the chance to play every position. Naugy Sports also runs an indoor soccer league in the winter for children ages 7 to 9 and a variety of sports clinics, including baseball, throughout the year.
