Spring Program

Spring 2021 General Information

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.

2021 SPRING REGISTRATION will be open March 13, 2021.   Registration will be $90.00 per player. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. All registrations include an NFL Flag game jersey.

RYFA will follow the mandated COVID protocols from the Minnesota Department of Health for Organized Youth Sports. RYFA will communicate those rules closer to the program start date; but as of March 12, 2021 a facemask is required for flag football players this spring.
