Player registration fee is $40 per adult player and $20 for “Little” Buddy Bowl participants. Fee is waived for active duty and retired military. For information, call Kristine White, 219-707-3378.
The Buddy Bowl is unique because it is the only annual event in the U.S. that raises money for military and law enforcement personnel and their families through a community based flag football tournament that includes both physically challenged and able-bodied participants.
