All Ages & Skill Levels

Plain and simple, flag football is loads of fun. With fewer players on the field, there’s more engagement and a faster speed of play. Youth football teaches kids accountability, leadership, and the impact of positive sportsmanship. Every position has a purpose and to execute a play successfully, each individual needs to fulfill their responsibility while working together—a skill that’s valuable both on and off the field.

\

No Contact

Flag football is a non-contact sport, meaning there’s no tackling, diving, blocking, screening or fumbles allowed.

\

Accessibility

Flag football is an incredibly inclusive sport and opens the doors to many players, including female athletes.

\

Easy Commitment

Practices are held once a week and games are generally played on Saturday nights UNDER THE LIGHTS! There is no travel required.

The Game of Flag Football

1. At the start of each game, captains from both teams meet at midfield for the coin toss to determine who starts with the ball. The visiting team calls the toss.

2. The winner of the coin toss has the choice of offense or defense. The loser of the coin toss has the choice of direction. Possession changes to start the second half to the team that started the game on defense.

3. The offensive team takes possession of the ball at its 5-yard line and has four (4) plays to cross midfield. Once a team crosses midfield, it has three (3) plays to score a touchdown.

4. If the offense fails to score, after crossing midfield, the ball changes possession and the new offensive team starts its drive on its own 5-yard line.

5. If the offensive team fails to cross midfield, on 3 downs, and elect to “punt” on 4th down, possession of the ball
changes and the opposition starts its drive from its own 5-yard line. If the offensive team goes for it on 4th down and does not cross field, the opposing team will start its
possession from the spot.

6 . Teams change sides after the first half.
Possession changes to the team that started the game on defense.
