Flag Football

Learn the fundamentals of football without the tackling or contact. YMCA youth flag football is a fun, fast-paced way for kids from kindergarten through sixth grade to master the rules of the game of football while developing teamwork and sportsmanship.

Youth flag football teams practice at least once per week learning skills in passing and receiving, interceptions and offensive and defensive plays. Games are played 5-on-5, and rules ensure all players get a chance to experience the full game, and not just one position all season.

YMCA youth flag football leagues practice and play during the Fall 1 season (August through October). Teams are co-ed and divisions include: Kindergarten, 1st/2nd grade, 3rd/4th grade and 5th/6th grade. 

The Schlessman YMCA offers flag football leagues during the following seasons:
