NFL Flag Football leagues are offered in the spring and fall for ages 6-16. The fall season will run August – November.
This is a competitive league with a playoff system to determine a league champion. This league will offer players non-contact continuous football action, using minimal equipment. The game emphasizes basic football skills of passing, catching, defending, and running. The offensive team plays for a first down at midfield and a touchdown in the end zone with “no-running zones” at midfield and near each goal line. The defensive team covers receivers, rushes the passer, and grabs flags to make “tackles.”
Players attend an evaluation to determine skill levels and are selected on teams through a draft process. Player evaluation days are Friday, July 20th & Saturday, July 21st. Make up day is July 28th.
A player may not miss player evaluations for two consecutive playing seasons. If the player does not participate in the player evaluations for two consecutive seasons he/she is registered for, the player is ineligible to play and will withdraw from the league.
Practices will begin Saturday, August 11th. A coach will contact you by August 10th to let you know when practice starts. Practices are held on various weekday evenings throughout the week.
Upon registering, please visit www.idalee.org to fill out the NFL Flag Football player information forms. Carpool requests are not accepted. An email will provide more details once registration has ended.
