Play Flag Football at the Y!
Flag football is a growing alternative to full contact football that teaches the basic skills and concepts of the game. In flag football, kids have the opportunity to experience football in a less physical environment and still acquire the same fundamentals of the sport. Focusing on building skills, sportsmanship and defining teamwork in a structured environment, your kid will learn to throw, catch and run routes. Hand-eye coordination and leadership skills will both improve as they learn and refine their play techniques. Our Flag Football Class is designed to introduce young athletes to the game while providing a safe environment to grow in the sport.
You’ll love watching your kids throw their first perfect spiral, haul in the deep bomb, or pick one off and take it for six.
In Y flag football, youth will:
- Learn how to play the game in a challenging environment
- Brush up on the rules, tactics and skills
- Improve their game and have fun!
