Flag Football

Age: 5-10 years

Learn the basics of football in this instructional and fun league! This is a flag football-style league with no gear. Teams practice one night per week with games on Saturdays. Parent volunteers coach the teams.

Fall 2020

Due to low enrollment and new guidelines for youth sports during Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, our Flag Football League has been cancelled for Fall 2020. However, we are turning the league into a Flag Football Class so your child can still play this fall. Please see class information below.

Flag Football Class

Players will be introduced to stance, receiving, rushing, blocking and defense. Each week ends with a scrimmage encouraging teamwork and sportsmanship. Players always get to play either receiver or running back each week. Games focus on fundamentals and field concepts, as well as positions and mechanics. No equipment necessary!
