NFL Flag Football leagues are offered in the spring and fall for ages 6-16. The fall season will run August – October.
This is a fun league with a playoff system that adds a competitive aspect 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 Wednesday, July 17th & Thursday, July 18th . Make up day is July 27th.
A player must attend one evaluation session per calendar year. If the player does not meet this criteria, they will be ineligible and their registration will be forfeited.
Practices will begin Saturday, August 10th. A coach will contact you by August 9th to let you know when practice starts. Practices are held on various weekday evenings throughout the week. The regular season consists of a 7 game schedule with 6 games being guaranteed. Regular season runs Saturday, August 24th through Sunday, October 13th. Each team will play 1 game on Saturday or Sunday each week of the regular season. Playoffs will be held the final 2 weekends in October. Days and dates may change if needed due to inclement weather and could go into November as a result. Fall games are played on Ida Lee Fields and Robinson Park Field.
