FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Ages 7 & 8 and Ages 9 & 10 - Considered by many as the skills version of American football, Flag Football is a version of American football that is popular across the U.S. The basic rules of the game are similar to those of the professional game, but instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier ("de-flagging") to end a down. Players wear a belt with flags around the waist. The only contact is above the waist blocking at the line of scrimmage. Like touch football, flag football was designed in an effort to minimize injuries that playing tackle football could bring. Our emphasis is on fun and friendly competition, as well as an opportunity for kids to practice the "skill" portions of the game.
Depending upon numbers, we will look to create balanced teams, which compete each week. Fun, fitness and skill development are the themes. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, as is the play. Each week will begin with 15-20 minutes of warm-ups and skill development followed by game play. Dynamic stretching focuses on "limbering" the body during athletic movements. It is an effective means of preparing the body for athletic play.
