SPRING FLAG LEAGUE

Flag football is a variation of tackle football, which everyone is familiar with, but does not require equipment and is a non-contact sport.  It is also one of the fastest growing sports around the world! Why?  It’s a fast-paced game, easy to learn without the concerns sometimes associated with contact sports, and best of all it is incredibly fun.  Many of the same skills needed in tackle football are also used in flag football, such as throwing, catching, hand-offs and running…all in a safe and welcoming environment.

The goal of our league is to provide an environment that enables children to learn and have fun.  They will experience and adopt the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and sportsmanship. Participation in our league is open to all boys and girls.

Our leagues are made possible through the tireless efforts of volunteers who display an extraordinary amount of commitment and hard work, ensuring that our league is a positive influence in the lives of our children through providing a healthy outlet for children. Best of all..anyone can play – no previous football experience is necessary!

SEASON START DATE:

Target start date is the first week of May.  The season runs through to the third week of June. 

PLAYER AGES AND DIVISIONS:

With the massive growth every year we have separated age divisions into two categories – Recreational and CompetitiveNot all divisions have both available.  Refer to the chart below:

Age Birth Year Recreational Competitive COED
U10 2013-2015 Yes No Yes
U12 2011-2012 Yes Yes Yes
U14 2009-2010 Yes Yes Yes
U16 2007-2008 Yes Yes Yes
U18 2005-2006 No Yes Yes
Junior Girls 2008-2010 Yes No
Senior Girls 2005-2007 No Yes

 

GAMES AND PRACTICES:

We try to schedule each age division on the same night as the previous Spring season.  Below are anticipated 2022 game nights: 

Division Game Night
U10 Division THURSDAY
U12 Division MONDAY
U14 Division TUESDAY
U16 Division WEDNESDAY
U18 Division THURSDAY
Jr Girls Division THURSDAY
Sr Girls Division THURSDAY

Each team plays two one-hour games back-to-back each game night, meaning that over the 6-7 weeks of regular season teams will have 12-14  games including a playoff week and – for those lucky teams – Championship games!

Teams will typically practice once or twice per week.  The League has no requirement regarding practices and it is usually left up to the coach and parents to agree on a practice schedule for their team. However, we expect that all teams should practice at least once per week, but no more than 3 practices.
Practice days, times and locations are again determined with agreement among the team.  Practices can be held anywhere there is a reasonable green space.  School grounds or parks etc., are perfect practice locations as a large field is not needed for flag football.
