Youth Flag Football

Flag football is a fun, safe way for your rising football star to learn the game or keep their skills sharp for the upcoming season. At Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill, we host flag football leagues and camps that let kids get out on their field and compete in lively matches. 

Our sports complex is home to two turf fields — one indoor and one outdoor — where kids can have a great experience overseen by our staff. Stop in to ask about flag football opportunities in Hamilton, Ohio, at Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill.  

How to Play Flag Football

If you understand how traditional American football works, you already have a pretty good idea of how to play flag football. The main difference is that flag football replaces tackling as a downing method with pulling a flag from the ball carrier's waistband. 

In most cases, flag football games consist of two teams with between five and eight players per side. The rules prohibit tackling, but some chest blocking is allowed depending on the league. The ball carrier may not protect their flag with their body. Defenders can only pull a player's flag when that player is carrying the ball.

Just like traditional American football, the goal is to reach the other team's end zone in a set number of plays. Flag football's scoring rules follow those of American football, where a touchdown equates to six points. After a touchdown, the scoring team may attempt an extra-point kick from the 3-yard line or a two-point conversion play from the 10-yard line. If the defending team downs the quarterback in their own end-zone, they'll receive two points for a safety. 

Why Flag Football?

Youth flag football involves some of the most fun parts of American football while removing some of the dangerous elements. Players can stay active and perfect their passing, throwing and defending skills. What's more, flag football helps kids make friends and build their interpersonal communication skills through teamwork and sportsmanship. 

What Do You Need to Play?

Flag Football-1

All you need to play flag football is a ball and flag belt. Flag belts tie around the waist and hold two or three flags fastened with either buttons or hook-and-loop strips. For footwear, Spooky Nook allows players to wear sneakers, running shoes or molded cleats on turf fields. Metal spikes are not allowed.
