Youth Flag Football
Let your kids discover the joys of football without the contact!
We run an instructional league, emphasizing teaching opportunities, teamwork and fun over competition. Patterned after the NFL Flag Football program, the league stresses teaching the basics of the game.

Our youth leagues run on volunteer coaches! Here are a few of the benefits of volunteering with us:
- Receive a $25 discount on your child’s league fee
- Give us your shirt size & receive a Coach’s jersey
- Experience reward - Check out this article about a parent’s great experiences from making the choice to coach kids sports
All you will need to do is attend our Coach’s Meeting, where you will be given a run-down of rules and general information for the season, have the opportunity to meet co-coaches, and pick up jerseys and a few coaching resources if needed. You will receive a roster of the team and be their main point of contact.
Mouth guard must be purchased. Cleats optional, but recommended to prevent slipping (no metal spikes). Gloves are also optional.
Flags, belts and balls are provided for use in play. First Aid supplies are kept in the field storage bin located on site for athletes to use when needed.
Practices and games take place on Saturdays only. The season runs from mid August to early October for a total of 9 weeks-- the first 3 Saturdays are practices and the following 6 Saturdays are games.
The youngest age group (6-8) plays first each week, with the first team starting at 9:00am, followed by the older age groups-- the day normally wraps up around 5:00pm depending on how many participants sign up. Each game is 50 minutes long, with a 10-minute buffer between games for the previous 2 teams to clear out and the next 2 teams to set up. A detailed schedule for your team's specific practice and game times will be created and emailed out to parents at least 2 weeks before the start of the season.
Rain Out Information
Rain-Out Line: (703) 497-7133
Since the weather is always changing, the Rain-Out Line is your best tool to check cancellation status. It will be updated at 8:15am before practices/games start for the day if there are any changes. Please listen to the date of the message to ensure it is not an old recording, and save the number in your phone to reference for both swim lessons and youth leagues.
With safety, fairness and field preservation as our priorities, we do our best to follow the same schedule for the day for all teams, but if morning practices/games run and weather worsens significantly later in the day, check the Rain-Out Line 45 minutes before your practice/game to ensure it is still running.
While rained out practices are not made up, rained out games will be added on at the end of the season. The Rain-Out Line will reflect updated make-up information as needed.
