NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans have partnered with Williamson County to start the first interscholastic girls’ flag football league starting in spring 2022.

Nine teams will play a six-week, eight-game season starting in March. All teams will qualify for the league championship tentatively set to be played at Nissan Stadium in May.

Darrin Joines is district athletic director for Williamson County schools. He said this will be a pilot program for the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association to gauge interest in the sport for future expansion.

The TSSAA will advise on officiating, planning and other areas.
