Eau Claire, WI (WEAU) - Summer is in full swing and that means football training camps all across the country are getting a jump start on the season. But there's one local flag football team that's been playing all summer long.

WEAU’s Courtney Everett was live on Sunrise in Carson Park with the NFL Flag Summer Football League. The team is built up of 3rd -6th grade students from Eau Claire and Menomonie.

On air, we shared a special announcement for the Northwest Wisconsin Champions. Coach, Bobby Diaz says, “The team will be heading to Green Bay to play on Lambeau Field!”

On August 2nd, the Green Bay Packers will have their 14 annual Packers Family Night. 40 members of the football team were selected to play on the field.

Many of the kids say it’s a dream come true.

This summer program runs for 8 weeks, and Bobby says it’s great to get the kids out and exercising.
