Flag Football

YMCA Youth Sports Leagues are designed for children of all ages and stress development of skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and positive competition in a fun environment.  All participants will play equal amounts of time during the games and will have the opportunity to play at all different positions throughout the season.

YMCA flag football is a recreational program designed for youth new to the sport of football and for those not quite ready for tackle football. Flag Football teaches children how to play the sport of football while demonstrating rules, tactics and skills through fun filled games and practices. We focus on football education, participation and sportsmanship. Mouth guard and cleats are required.
