Jr Eagles Football

Flag Football

The Jr. Eagle Flag League is a perfect place to start your child in the great sport of Football.  Boys and Girls age 5-12 may play in this instructional league.  There are 4 divisions within the league; 5/6yr old, 7/8yr old, 9/10yr old and 11/12yr old league.  All divisions play 5 on 5 flag football with the rules from NFL Flag Football.  Flag Football is great place for kids to gain confidence, learn how to be part of a team, and build character. 
While we do keep score and maintain a record for playoffs and host a Super bowl game for each division, the key mission for Flag is learning the game and having fun.  We play about 11 inter-league games (9 regular season games which includes a homecoming game and playoff game(s)).  If your team makes it, they also get in a Super bowl game. Games will be played at Sunset Park in Lake in the Hills. The time commitment to start is roughly 2 practices per week, starting the last week of July and games beginning the 2nd weekend in August.
5/6 Flag Division
This division concentrates primarily on football rules, positions of the game, offense and defense concept, football fundamentals, team dynamics, sportsmanship, and FUN.  You will be surprised at watching your child's team run plays at the first game of the season...and then amazed at how good they are by playoff time. 
7/8 Flag Division
This division will build on all the fundamentals learned in the 5/6 division and build on those skills.  The 7-8 flaggers learn more complex plays and really begin playing more competitively as passing/catching and speed are the primary skills mastered at this level.  That also means the players need to learn a new and quicker way to play defense against the pass.

9/10 Flag Division
This division takes Flag Football to a completely new level.  Older kids mean more speed, more passes, more catches, more touchdowns....and more FUN!  This means that all players are going to have to learn to adapt quicker and learn a whole new scheme of football.

11/12 Flag Division
Introduced last season to get even more older kids playing, the 11/12 league was such a great addition to the flag league that we decided to make it permanent.  Take the 9/10 league's speed and excitement, multiply that by 2 and you'll get a clear picture of the competition level of this league!  
Any boy or girl between 4 and 12 years old by Sept. 1st can play in the Flag League. Whether you want your child to learn the game of football a little before moving up to tackle or if you just want them to have fun staying active, Flag Football is a great place to start.
