Description of League: Flag Football is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the country. The sport offers a great opportunity for players to develop skills without the hard contact of traditional football.

At the end of the season players should have an increased knowledge of the rules and Flag Football as well as improved skills in the following areas:
- The Center/QB Exchange
- The Proper Ready Stance
- The QB/RB Exchange (hand offs/pitches)
- Carrying the Football
- Throwing the Football
- Catching the Football
- Flag Pulling
- Defensive Stance
Equipment Provided: Footballs and Flag Belts
Equipment Needed: All players will be asked to wear cleats.
