Flex Flag FootballUpdated Saturday March 16, 2019 by Jennifer Oswitt.
FLEX FOOTBALL is here for our Grade 2-3 players during the 2019 fall season! In response to new safety concerns regarding flag football, Wachusett has decided to invest in our youngest players by offering Flex Football to replace our traditional flag program.
Flex football is a revolutionary new take on traditional flag football that allows kids to learn the fundamental football skills while playing a low-contact version of the game that they love! "Tackling" is still achieved by pulling flags, rather than player-to-player contact. Unlike traditional flag football, however, flex football includes blocking, pass rushing, and press coverage and forces players to use footwork, proper technique, leverage, and body positioning to execute plays without any involvement of the head.
