Flag Football is a non-contact game that promotes skill development, cardio training and mental strategy. People can play recreationally in parks, as part of school intramural programs and on a more competitive level within organized leagues. Flag Football is a sport easily adapted any age, any ability and both males and females. It is one of the fastest growing sports being played in Canada with competition extending internationally.

Flag Football is:

  • Fun
  • Inexpensive
  • Promotes “sport for life” opportunities!
  • Develops life skills through sport; such as cooperation, self discipline and sportsmanlike conduct, self-confidence and improves self-image!

One of the great advantages of Flag Football is that it can be played on any open field or gym. The play area can be simply and quickly laid out with small, rubber pylons. Indoor flag adopts the boundaries set by basketball. This usually ensures a safe distance between the lines and the wall.
