Your Child must always wear a mouth guard and cleats to play TeamX YNFL Flag Football. If you do not have a mouth guard please come to the concession stand, we keep a supply on hand and can sell you these inexpensively. Cleats are mandatory for traction and your child's protection on slippery grass. You may wish to purchase Underarmour or an equivalent for the early spring cool mornings.  Also optional are wide receiver gloves which can keep fingers warm and enhance catching.

In accordance with our COVID 19 plan, players must wear a face mask when on slide lines, leaving the fields, getting their temperature checked, and etc.  Players do not have wear a mask when he or she is actively practicing and playing during games.

Parking in a non-parking area may endanger the safety of the players and others.  Also, we want to be respectful of our partnerships.

How do you play Flag football?

The first rule of flag football is pretty straight forward: there’s no contact allowed. That includes tackling, blocking, and screening. Instead, players wear FLAGS that hang along their sides by a belt. To “tackle” the person in possession of the ball, the opposing team needs to pull one or both of their flags off.  

This rule, along with several others, serve a single purpose: to keep players safe. From creating “no run zones” to eliminating fumbles, flag football rules are designed to create a fast-paced, engaging version of football without the physical contact. Read all about the important FLAG FOOTBALL RULES you need to know, including the different terms and positions.
