Youth Flag Football

Contact Us

Spooky Nook Sports offers flag football leagues and events for both kids and adults. Like many youth sports, the youth flag football leagues will allow your child to learn how to play on a team, give them adequate exercise, and allow them to get exercise in a safe and fun environment. 

Most youth flag football leagues are 8 weeks and consist of 2 weeks of practice sessions, followed by 6 weeks of gameplay. 

How to Play?

Flag FootballFlag Football is played like regular American football, except with flags. Instead of tackling, players pull each other’s flags. Since flag football does not have a dominant sanctioning organization, the game has many variations that can change the number of players on each size, the field size and more. Youth flag football can also include separate rules, and games are open to kids between five to 17-years-old.

Typically, adult flag football consists of two teams of five to eight players who score points by moving the ball down the field and crossing the end zone. Whoever has the most points after regulation time, which includes two halves, wins the game. Flag football is considered a non-contact sport since you can't tackle. However, certain variations of contact flag football leagues allow blocking to the chest.

Just like football, you can score points in a few different ways, including:

  • A touchdown for six points
  • An extra point from the three-yard line for one point
  • An extra point from the 10-yard line for two points
  • A safety for two points

Equipment for Flag Football

Flag Football-1Adult flag football does not include all the equipment as a regular game of tackle football. You only need a football, a flag or a flag belt at the minimum to play. Most players also wear non-metal cleats.

Some of the rules for the flag belt include that players:

  • Must have their shirts tucked into the flag belt
  • Must have the football before an opponent pulls the belt
  • Cannot guard the flag belt with any part of the body

Health Benefits of Playing Flag Football

A game of adult flag football gives you some of the same benefits as tackle football without the risk of injury. Your physical health will improve as you use muscles you wouldn't usually use. Plus, it's a great cardio workout since you're always running up and down the field, which can also strengthen your heart.

Playing with other people, whether they're strangers or your friends, can make a big difference in your mental health, too. Having to effectively communicate with these individuals can improve your interpersonal communication skills and your mood as you interact with people.
