6U Flag is an exciting program that begins the development of throwing, catching and running control, all while playing creative and fun games. In this parent participation class, age appropriate balls are used to introduce the early skills of athletics in a fun and exciting manner. Props are used to enhance both their balance and motor skills. Touchdowns are scored at the end of every class with the parents cheering them on!  Each child receives a jersey and flag belt. This program meets only one a week on a Saturday or Sunday.  Ages 4 to 6.

8U to 13U Flag

This is a recreation league, so there are no tryouts or cuts. No previous experience is necessary. Our recreational flag football seasons typically run in the spring and fall.  Kids are placed on teams within their age groups - 8U, 10U, 13U. Ages based on January 1st of the current year.Each child receives a jersey and a flag belt.  Kids keep both the belt and jersey.

The spring season will typically begin the first week of April and run until early June.  Our fall season will typically begin the first week of September and end the first week of November. Exact dates/times will vary slightly based on locations.

Practices will start the week prior to the first games, and will be once a week for approximately one hour.  Games are played on weekends.

All teams qualify for the playoffs held on the final weekend(s) of the season.

Why Flag Football

1. Health benefits: Football is a fast moving game with a lot of variety. Players run, jump, quickly change direction, and stop and start, which improves cardiovascular health. Practice drills, complex running routes and defensive techniques all encourage speed, strength, and stamina. And these activities also engage motor skills, specifically hand and eye coordination. Plus, a recent study found that playing football has positive effects on bone strength.   

2. Teamwork: 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.

3. Discipline: Learning routes, repetitive drills, and executing proper technique take a high level of discipline—and football players do it time and time again. Each practice is laying the foundation for a strong work ethic that kids will use throughout their lives. And this is one of the biggest benefits of football.   

4. Mental toughness: Sports are a great platform to build mental toughness. Whether it’s making a mistake on the field or needing to comeback from a major upset, setbacks are bound to happen. And to move forward, players must learn how to persevere. Football provides a lot of opportunities to improve mental toughness, from remaining calm under pressure to focusing during chaotic situations.     

5. Socialization: Football teaches kids how to effectively communicate and work well with others. After all, one player can’t do everything. They rely on each other—what a better way to make long-lasting friendships? Layer this with learning to respect and receive direction from authority (aka coaches) and you have a range of socialization skills.
