FLAG FOOTBALL

NON-CONTACT

Experience the excitement of the game – without the contact. Flag is the heart of Non-Contact, and it’s a fun and fast-paced Game Type that can be played at any age and on various field sizes.

 

 

 

Fun / Fast / Fundamentals

 

In the Football Development Model, Non-Contact Flag is the first step in the Game Type progression.

 

Flag is a great way to introduce foundational football skills players will use in all versions of the game like contact, as well as other sports. Some athletes decide to stay in flag forever, while others progress to contact versions of the game. The goal is to set them up for success for wherever their football journey takes them.
