What is NFL Flag Football?
Flag football is a non-contact variant of American football. Instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag from the ball carrier to end a down.
NFL Flag football is based on the same principles as the contact version of American football with the offensive team having four attempts (downs) to reach a certain point on the field with the defensive team seeking to halt their progress.
Still not sure? Don’t worry, our qualified sports coaches will always explain the rules at the start of each session and adapt gameplay to ensure each game is fair and considerate of player’s abilities.
