Why play Neighborhood Sports Flag Football?
Neighborhood Sports Flag Football program is the premier NFL Youth Flag Football recreational league for boys and girls, ages 4-16.
Our league is an official program of the NFL and is sanctioned by USA football, the sport’s national governing body. Our directors have also served on the USA Football Youth Flag Football Committee assisting in the development of flag football coaching tools.
The program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork. Players develops skills that will help them succeed on and off the field. The game is 5 on 5 flag football and teaches the basic skills of football running, passing, receiving and defending. Games involve non-contact rules that eliminate all forms of blocking and tackling. The program is played on a 50-yard playing field where participants may run or pass the ball. Teams start at their 5-yard line and have three downs to move the ball past midfield. Once a team has crossed midfield they receive a new set of three downs to score.
