2016 Flag Football for 4th – 8th Grade Boys & Girls
Registration open now!
Darien YMCA Flag Football is a recreational program designed for youngsters new to the sport of football as well as those not quite ready for tackle football who want to learn how to play the sport, brush up on the rules, tactics, and skills, improve their game and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
Our focus is on football education, participation, and sportsmanship. Flag Football is open to Boys & Girls entering 4th – 8th grade in the fall of 2016. Our program was designed to give the players an opportunity to learn the basics of football and develop a better appreciation of the game. It is a wonderful experience, a great way to learn the skills of teamwork, and a lot of fun.
Flag Football is a NON-CONTACT sport. Velcro flags are worn and pulled off for a “tackle”. Flags and jerseys are provided. Sneakers or rubber cleats are recommended. Mouthpiece is optional. No experience is necessary and EVERYONE plays!
Flag Football begins September 11th and ends October 30th (8 weeks) with one weekday practice on Wednesdays at Ox Ridge 4:30 – 6pm and one game on Sundays at DHS Baseball Turf at 9am, 10am, 11am or 12pm. Season ends with a Round Robin Tournament. Program is run by Overtime Athletics. Coaches will play quarterbacks in games.
Fees: Members $250, Non-Members $350 and each player will receive a team jersey
