Youth flag football is offered for girls and boys ages 5 - 14. For ages 5-6, there is an instructional league where coaches will teach them how to play the game correctly; rules, pulling flags, throwing, catching, kicking, and running plays. At the end of the season, there will be scrimmages.
The rules of flag football are similar to those of the professional game, but without the tackling. Flag football is a great opportunity for kids to display their skills without the hard contact. Participants will wear belts with flags attached, which the defensive team must remove from the ball carrier to end a down. No experience is necessary.
