RYFA Flag Football aims to provide a fun, age-appropriate, learning environment where kids can play non-contact football, regardless of skill level. While the focus will be on the passing elements of the game (QB/C exchange, proper route running, proper throwing form, pass defense, and timing), the goal of the program is to give all kids a chance to throw and catch the ball, regardless of positions they may play in the fall program.
This program is affiliated with the NFL Flag program. It is open to all boys and girls from Kindergarten through 8th grades.
Registration will be available towards the end of January 2024.
Registration for the 2024 Spring Flag Football Season is now open. Registrations will be accepted until Saturday April 6th at 11:59pm. No registrations will be accepted after that date.
Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. The financial aid application is open until Wednesday, April 3rd. You can learn more about financial aid at this link...
Spring Flag Football league is held on Sunday afternoons. (No football is held on Memorial Weekend) These are the dates for the 2024 Spring Flag Football Season:
Spring weather can be unpredictable, that's why we always schedule one extra Sunday into the RYFA flag football schedule. If one session is cancelled, the session will not be made up. If more than one session is cancelled, we will hold a make-up session for those additional cancelled sessions.
All games will be played on Sunday afternoons at the RYFA Complex. Once registration closes for the 2024 spring season, session times will be confirmed based on the number of teams registered for each grade level. These times are subject to change. Feel free to use the 2023 session times as a guideline, but these are subject to change.
Team assignments and schedule information will be available once registration closes and the teams have been rostered.
There will be a short practice held prior to games being played on Sundays. There will be no additional practices held outside of your scheduled Sunday session.
The flags and jerseys will be provided by RYFA. Participants should wear athletic shoes or cleats and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated on game day.
