Football Canada National Youth Flag Program

Football Canada operates annual youth flag football programs from March to July through our member Provincial and local Football Associations. U9 to U18 age divisions are focused on learning skills through recreational play. Our leagues play 5vs5 Flag Football and follow the Canadian Flag Football Rule Book.

New Leagues

Leagues can be formed by any willing organizer. Typically, a league should have at least four teams. New league organizers need to contact their local Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) for an application form. PSO membership includes incentives such as insurance coverage and the opportunity to partake in provincial, national and international events.

Each team member will need to be registered and purchase equipment through their Provincial Association. Please, contact them now for an application. For more information about flag football, please contact
