9. What is the cutoff date to determine which age group a player is assigned to?

We use the Fall tack­le foot­ball age cut­off. Your child’s age as of August 1st of the pre­ced­ing year is their NFL Flag age. Exam­ple: If they turned 11 on August 1st they are 11 for the pur­pos­es of our league. If they turn 11 after that date they are 10 for the pur­pos­es of our league.

10. Are there play downs?

There are no play-downs in NFL Flag. We run a non con­tact flag foot­ball for­mat.

11. Are teams randomly selected?

In some cas­es play­ers will be ran­dom­ly assigned, but for the most part coach­es, play­ers, and par­ents choose the teams.

12. Can I coach?

We are always in need of coach­es and vol­un­teers. Any­one wish­ing to par­tic­i­pate on the field with play­ers will have to fill out a Coach’s Vol­un­teer form and sub­mit to a back­ground check.

13. How many players are on each team?

NFL Flag is a fast paced game and it can be dif­fi­cult to spread play­ing time around. 8 play­ers are rec­om­mend­ed; how­ev­er, in the inter­est of keep­ing friends togeth­er we will allow more at the coach’s dis­cre­tion.

14. Are referees provided by the league?

No. Games are self offi­ci­at­ed. Each team must provide 1 vol­un­teer to help spot the ball, run the clock and call fla­grant penalties.

15. Do I have to find a sponsor for my team?

No. Spon­sors are not required for NFL Flag.
