Flag Football - Coed League

Youth Recreational League

Learn to love flag football at the Y! We offer 5 on 5 (no contact) flag football leagues year-round for ages 4 to 17.

This recreational league is ideal for beginner to advanced skill levels. With a focus on safety, sportsmanship and teamwork, we provide an environment in which children can learn skills, have fun and be active. Most leagues run eight weeks, with games on Sunday and practices scheduled by the coach

At the Y, winning isn’t all about athleticism and scoring the most points. We encourage healthy competition and improving skills. Every child on the team has the opportunity to play, and we encourage them to set individual goals and cooperate with others.

Prior to forming teams, we conduct skills assessments that include fun drills and scrimmages. Our goal is to create teams that reflect a balance of age, height, skill level and gender, based on the staff’s assessment of each player. Parents may request specific practice days and times, coaches or teams. We will consider, but cannot guarantee, requests.
