Flag Football

Offered in the Fall and Spring Season

1st through 8th grade  *grade is determined by 2021-2022 school year

Our Flag Football program encourages healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participating over winning, and team building over individual glorification. This program has no tryouts and everyone is welcome. Thanks to the YMCA’s and Flag Football rules, kids participate in every game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level. The YMCA’s volunteer coaches will emphasize skill development and most importantly, having fun!  

COACHES:  Each team must have a designated volunteer coach, willing to complete the volunteer process by deadlines.  Coaches are usually Parents/Grandparents. Apply to be a Volunteer Coach.
