NFL Flag Football

The Richardson YMCA NFL Flag Football program is offered in the fall, winter and spring seasons.  It is a safer alternative for parents who might hesitate letting their children start tackle football. NFL Flag, powered by USA Football is geared toward boys and girls who want to learn how to play flag football, tactics, and most importantly - HAVE FUN! Football players should anticipate a challenging but instructional program that focuses on fundamentals, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship.

Participants should register based on the calendar grade of Fall 2023 to end of Summer 2024 school year.
