Flag Football

Flag Football Rules! (pun intended) If you just want to get outside and toss around the football with minimal rules, that can be lots of fun.

If you want to get serious about the game, here are the offical rules of the United States Flag Football Association.

Get in the game. Flag football is fun, fast, safe and exciting to play! Great for the beginner or the experienced player, flag football offers all of the challenge and fun of football – great exercise and safe to play without the tackles. Playing flag football is also a fun way to socialize.

Youth Flag Football is a great sport that allows kids that are not quite ready for tackle football to still enjoy the great game of football as well.

When nice weather comes to town, it's time to get out the football and play a little flag football in the local park or on a beach.


Measure a length of 1 1/2-inch-wide grosgrain ribbon to fit each player's waist and attach adhesive-backed Velcro closures to each end.

Make 2 or 3 flags for each belt by cutting 12-inch lengths of ribbon. If you are not going to use the set of flags again and again, let each player decorate his or her own flag belt with fabric markers. You could even have them put their first name on the flag.

Affix a bit of adhesive-backed Velcro to one end of each flag and the belt, then press the flags in place.

If you don't want to DIY, then simply order the set shown below.
