WINTER INDOOR 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!
