This initiative is part of the Miami Dolphins Youth Programs’ ongoing effort to impact every high school football program and its athletes in South Florida. The organization has worked to grow girls flag football for middle schools and high schools in Broward and Miami-Dade County Schools for more than 20 years. In the past two years, the Junior Dolphins program has supported more than 30 girls high school flag football teams through efforts that include equipment donations, meal distributions and hosting training camp and game day experiences.

As stewards of the game, Junior Dolphins strive to grow participation in the game, impact the football community and build the next generation of Dolphins fans. Through strong community partnership and strategic resource distribution, all aspects of the Junior Dolphins program work to emphasize character building to increase the overall experience in youth football.
