Flag Football

As a no-contact sport, flag football brings all the fun of football, just without the pain and high risk of injury. We emphasize the importance of leadership, sportsmanship, and the ability to work in a team. These skills are coupled with an opportunity to get outside and get some exercise in a fun and exciting way. They will make lifelong friends as they learn how to work together and develop their balance, coordination and get some fitness in to boot.

Rookie Plus Flag Football

The Rookie Plus Flag Football program focuses on skill development, fun, and a sense of team in a semi-competitive environment. Our rules have been adjusted to ensure better parity and limit the ability of a team to “run up the score”. All Rookie Plus divisions will practice one hour per week with a game on Saturdays. If needed, make-up games or tournament games may be played on Fridays.
Grades: 1st - 6th (ages 6-12)
