About Youth Flag Football:

Flag football has all the fitness and social benefits of a rigorous team sport, with far less injury risk than a contact sport.

The Associated Press reports “The sport is growing for all kinds of reasons: Players don’t need a lot of protective equipment, so it’s cheaper and easier to field a team; and kids can play whether they are big or small.”  Additional rules reduce the chances of inadvertant contact.  These include stopping play when there is a fumble or interception.

Other advantages include less comittment of time.  Tackle football requires up to three 2 hour practices per week and travel games. Flag has no practices and one local game per week.

Flag football is a fun and popular alternative to tackle football, offering families the same great experiences of this well loved sport, with a lower cost to both wallets and health.
