What exactly is Flag Football?
Flag football, specifically NFL Flag, is a fun and fast paced non-contact alternative to tackle football. NFL Flag emphasizes football skill development, fitness, teamwork and sportsmanship and is an exciting introduction to football or those concerned with player safety. NFL Flag is played with small teams with all players playing skilled positions (Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver). Players lead themselves down a shortened field in an attempt to score touchdowns.
