At the Brighton Youth Sports Department we strongly believe that flag football is a sport that everyone can play regardless of skill, size, or strength.
- Games are based on the NFL "Air it Out" format, where each team plays with 5 players on the field at a time.
- Games and practices are held at local parks. Each child plays equal time no matter the skill level.
- All practices will be held on weekdays and are determined by the team's coach. Coaches will call the parents to let them know the days practices have been scheduled.
- Games are scheduled on Saturdays at Brighton Park.
- Players are placed on a team according to age.
- Each child will be given a game shirt for them to keep.
- Players are not required to wear cleats. No player are allowed to wear metal cleats.
- Players will also be issued flag belts, by the coaches, to wear during games and practice.
- If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
