Hanahan High School flag football players dump water on their coach after capping the 2017 season with a league title at Charleston Southern.

The girls of fall are back on the gridiron this month when the sixth season of high school flag football in the Charleston area kicks off.

The eight-team club league is part of the North Charleston Police Department’s Cops Athletic Program.

North Charleston, Academic Magnet, Stall and Military Magnet form the league’s Eastern Division while Fort Dorchester, Summerville, Hanahan and Ashley Ridge are in the Western Division.

Each squad will play seven regular season games.

The playoffs begin on Oct. 21 and one champion will be crowned on Nov. 6 at Charleston Southern in the Powder Bowl.

In 2018, the league had co-champions, Summerville and Stall.

All eight teams will be in action at Danny Jones Park in North Charleston on Sept. 3 and 4.
