Too often, when playing the sport of football or when first being introduced to the sport of football, children are placed in an environment where they learn how to hit before they learn how to play the game.
The Lakes Region Flag Football League, in conjunction with NFL Flag Football, provides a structured and organized non-contact football program that focuses on the basic fundamentals of football where children can learn the game at a very fast pace and in a competitive environment without the burden of wearing pads and a helmet.
We teach our players the ability and the responsibility to avoid all contact, which makes them quick, agile, and elusive.
NFL Flag Football offers great fun and teamwork, and all players on offense have the opportunity to touch the ball on any given play.
The Lakes Region Flag Football League adheres to the rules set forth by NFL Flag, and can be a great introduction to football for those players who want to someday join either a full-contact league or play high school football.
We know all children have a dream to belong and to be loved, and all hope for a friend. To that end we promote the 5 C's all children need: Confidence, Convictions, Character, Compassion and Competency.
We also observe the Seven Guiding Principles of NFL Youth Programs, which can be found on our website.
Our league is open to all boys and girls of the Lakes Region area, from ages 4-17 for our Spring and Fall Youth League seasons.
