Youth NFL Flag Football
GET IN THE GAME
The YMCA's NFL flag football program offers several different leagues for children of all ages. Flag football is fun for everyone and a safer alternative for parents who might hesitate letting their children start tackle football.
Volunteer coaches, often parents of players, help run each team. Coaches conduct practices and notify parents when players need to arrive for practices and games.
Be the difference in your children's development and register them for a YMCA NFL flag football league at your neighborhood Y.
AGES: Grades 1 - 8
YMCA youth sports encourage healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, positive self– image and a sense of fair play. Through our caring staff and coaches, we help your child develop the skills fundamental not only to play the sport, but also to be successful in the community such as cooperation, commitment, dedication and sportsmanship.
The YMCA promises no tryouts, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques. We want to help cultivate our youth into becoming outstanding people just as much as helping them become outstanding players.
Together We Can Do More:
We're seeking volunteers interested in coaching youth sports. Our coaches make YMCA youth sports possible, and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide resources specific to the sport you coach. For more information, contact your nearest Y by phone or stop by the Welcome Center.
