NFL Flag Football

The YMCA's NFL flag football program offers two different leagues for children of all ages 5-12. Flag football is fun for everyone and a safer alternative for parents who might hesitate letting their children start tackle football.

YMCA youth sports encourage healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, positive self– image and a sense of fair play. Through our caring staff and coaches, we help your child develop the skills fundamental not only to play the sport, but also to be successful in the community such as cooperation, commitment, dedication and sportsmanship.

Volunteer coaches, often parents of players, help run each team. Coaches conduct practices and notify parents when players need to arrive for practices and games.

The YMCA promises no tryouts, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques. We want to help cultivate our youth into becoming outstanding people just as much as helping them become outstanding players.

Practices will be held at Erickson play-field in Port Angeles three times a week on weeknights. Games will be held at Stevens Middle School on Saturdays. The 5-6 year old academy will meet twice a week on weeknights only. Each participant receives a replica reversible NFL jersey.

Be the difference in your children's development and register them for a YMCA NFL flag football league at your YMCA of Port Angeles!
