Youth Flag Football
For Ages 4 to 12
Huddle up‚ flag football is here! YMCA of Austin 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. The Y flag football program is geared toward those youth 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.
Y youth sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others. Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches – as well as being their kid’s greatest fan.
PRACTICES: 60-minutes weekly
FOCUS: Participation and fun! Basic skills of the game are developed through games and activities. Every child is required to play at least one half of every game. Sportsmanship and values are key components of this league. Every game starts with a Youth Sports Pledge and ends with a handshake. Every child receives an award at the end of the season!
PROGRAM OFFERINGS: Summer & Fall
