Spring Flex Football is Here

Updated Thursday March 14, 2019 by Jennifer Oswitt.

Introducing SPRING FLEX FOOTBALL, offered to all athletes ages 4-14.  Flex is a fast-paced alternative to flag football with limited, controlled contact played with NFL-style soft-shell helmet and pads, allowing more focus on the running and passing game.  This is a great introduction to football for new players, and excellent off-season training for those who currently play football in the fall. 

The Basics:

  • 9 on 9 play
  • Traditional first downs
  • Limited contact
  • Players are introduced to blocking
  • No shoulder blocking
  • No tackling
  • Players wear flags, just like traditional flag football
  • Players wear soft-shell helmets and soft-shell shoulder pads
  • FUN!!!
