Flag Football

Flag Football Program

The YMCA of GWC's flag football program helps kids get a feel for football as they work on the fundamentals of throwing, catching and playing as a team in this no-tackle sport. 

The Rookie Plus Flag Football program focuses on skill development, fun, and a sense of team in a semi-competitive environment. Our rules have been adjusted to ensure better parity and limit the ability of a team to “run up the score”. All Rookie Plus divisions will practice one hour per week with a game on Saturdays.

There are many benefits for kids to start playing YMCA Flag Football

  • Start building motor skills necessary for the game
  • Learning the basic rules
  • Offensive and defensive techniques of the game
  • Semi-competitive scenarios
