Flag Football

Grade K-2: Flag football is offered and is played co-ed. Season runs from the beginning of September through the end of October. Team meets once per week.

This program will introduce kids to the sport of football in a safe, low pressure environment designed to introduce various aspects of the game.  This is a non-competitive program with the emphasis on fun!  Players are allowed to do both K-2 Football and soccer as the schedules will not conflict.

The program is designed to teach the basic skills of football such as throwing, catching, handoffs, stance, etc...through various fun drills and games. The season will progress towards an end of season game/event.  Whenever we play a game or scrimmage, the players will use flags so there is minimal contact.
