ABOUT FRIDAY NIGHT FLAG
Welcome to Friday Night Flag, the ultimate Youth Flag Football experience played Under the Lights on Friday Nights!tm Friday Night Flag is an NFL Flag affiliated league, tailored to the competitive player who wants to continue to develop their football skills during the off season. Friday Night Flag is available for all Boys and Girls, grades K through 8. Our league is played 5 vs 5 (8-10 on a team), with an emphasis on team play and sportsmanship. Through the design of the league, it is quick play and high tempo which makes for exciting games for both the players and the parents. We play 5 regular season games with playoffs on the final two Fridays of the season. Each team should play 6 games (unless games cancelled due to weather; there are no make-up games when cancelled).
Playing Friday Night Flag, your child will develop character, quick football speed and skill sets that include:
- Pass Coverage
- Run Defense
- Responding to a fast game tempo
Because we are affiliated with NFL Flag, your child will receive an official NFL Flag reversible jersey. The jersey is yours to keep after the season is completed. It will represent your team which will be named for one of the 32 NFL teams. Each player will also receive a pair of Friday Night Flag playing shorts.
Friday Night Flag is a family-friendly league. Your child will practice once per week (1.5 hours maximum) and will get equal playing time regardless of skill level. Friday Night Flag has created an event atmosphere where families can enjoy watching their child play Flag Football, enjoy great food from various weekly food vendors build friendships with parents of other players. While Flag is a competitive league, we encourage courteous parents and fans.
