Youth Flag Football

Register now for Fall session!

NFL Flag is non-contact football with primary emphasis placed on the development of passing, receiving, running and coverage skills. There is no blocking or tackling in NFL Flag; the game is strictly “no contact” with primary emphasis placed on skill development, learning, and having fun playing football. 

Games are played 6 v 6 with modified rules to heighten skill development and maximize activity. Players meet for 90 minutes each week – a 40-minute training session followed by a 50-minute game against another team. KidsPlay coaches coordinate all practices and games with parents coaches providing assistance during training sessions.  An NFL team-oriented reversible football jersey and flag football belt is included in the fee. 

Other Important Information 

  • Teammate requests are honored 90% of the time. The only time KidsPlay cannot is when there is a string of player requests that clearly affect the balance of the league. Creating one dominant (or super experienced) team can create a lot of issues. 
  • The first day is an evaluation day. They grade players out and distribute an even number of experienced/inexperienced players onto each team. 
  • Team rosters and a league schedule for weeks 2-6 are emailed to parents 12-24 hours after the first meeting. 
  • Unless told otherwise, siblings are always grouped on the same team. 
  • Fall Flag Football is outside. 

Cost: $110 for Kenan Members and $120 for Non-Kenan Members
