Flag Football is a coed recreational league that teaches the fundamentals of flag football in a fun, non-competitive environment. We emphasize equal playing time and fun through caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Players may play up an age bracket, but not down. Players may request only one other player to be placed on their team, siblings are automatically placed together. Games are played rain or shine. A mouth guard is required for practices and games; no pads. Game times may vary.

Sports can be beneficial at any age. Youth and adult leagues offer similar benefits, including:
1. Football is a game that requires players to sprint, jump, run, and rapidly change directions. Cardiovascular health is improved during each game or practice along with coordination, agility, and speed. Hand and eye coordination are also improved.
2. Youths learn how to be accountable and how their participation can impact a game. Games can only be won with proper positioning, teaching responsibility, and the value of working together. Adults benefit from teamwork in the same way and can build leadership skills, too.
3. Discipline and executing proper techniques on the field are an important part of the learning process. This discipline and work ethic will be used throughout a person’s life and can help in traditional football, soccer, basketball, and even in a person’s career.
4. Mental toughness is another benefit. Win or lose, a person has to get out on the field and give every game their all. You’ll learn how to handle pressure, losses, and of course, the joy of victory.
Flag football is also a great opportunity to socialize. You or your child will learn how to communicate with others, work together to win games, and also build lasting friendships in the process.
