YMCA Youth Flag Football teaches kids about all the hikes, passes and touchdowns without the helmets, pads and tackles. Kids also learn the value of teamwork, honesty and hard work. The season includes drills, skill development and scrimmages.
All players are required to wear mouth guards during play and athletic bottoms with no pockets.
Our flag football program is open to girls and boys ages 6 - 15. Younger teams are coed.
