Youth Flag Football

The YMCA offers flag football for all kids ages 6 - 15. Depending on age and location, practices and game schedules may vary.

This spring, Flag Football may look different. While we hope to offer our traditional league format, due to state and local guidelines around health and safety, the YMCA may have to restructure our leagues.

If we determine that we cannot provide a traditional league format, we will offer an academy style program, focusing on skills development and same-team scrimmages within each training group later in the season. Our focus will continue to be on player and team development, coaching with character and keeping kids active and safe in our programs.

2021 Spring Season

We are still working to determine whether we will offer an academy style season or a full season with full games between teams. Participants will be notified prior to the season's start.

Kraft Family YMCA
Late Spring Season: May 24 - June 26


Teams are formed based on age. See below for ages and locations. Please refer to our age chart to determine your child's age group league.


All players must have and wear a mouthguard and wear athletic bottoms with no pockets during play. 


YMCA youth flag football recreational teams are led by volunteer coaches. All volunteer coaches undergo a background check and training. Opportunities are available for coaches and assistant coaches at all locations.
