Learn Skills, Play Safe, Have FUN

Flag football is one of the premier sports programs we offer at the Y. Each year, hundreds of boys and girls age 3 years old through eighth grade learn the fundamentals of the game in a way that reduces the risk of injury and helps ensure a positive experience for all.

For 2022, the Y has joined with NFL Flag, the largest youth flag football league in the U.S. This partnership will provide enhanced training opportunities for our volunteer coaches and a fun, dynamic experience for players that emphasizes the importance of leadership, fair play and teamwork. 

At the Y, participation in our Rookie league for preschoolers (ages 3-5) is FREE with a Family membership. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. We do not want cost to be a barrier for anyone who wants to play.
