Flag Football/7v7

Waxahachie Family YMCA Flag Football program is offered in the fall and spring.  It is powered by USA Football and 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.

The 7v7 program is offered in the summer season.  This is a non-tackling sport where players can learn another way of playing football.  Unlike most youth football leagues the Y has no tryouts so all kids can experience football in a fun, friendly, and level playing field that allows all players to have fun.

Participants should register based on the calendar grade of Fall 2022 to end of the Summer 2023 school year.
