Advanced Flag Football Program (Grades 3-4)

Youth participation in flag football is up nearly 40% since 2015, making it one of America’s fastest growing sports.

FYFC is proud to offer our Advanced Flag Football Program that has been developed for athletes entering grades 3-4 looking to learn the game of football in a non-tackle environment. Currently, our Advanced Flag Football Program is a non-travel house program.

Advanced Flag Football is a hybrid form of flag football that places an emphasis on scheme and assignment in a low-impact environment. Athletes in our Advanced Flag program wear a lightweight, soft-shell helmet, which enables them to learn important footwork and hand-eye skills without wearing the larger equipment required for tackle football. Contact is limited to open hand/upper torso between opposing players. Instead of full contact tackling, the play ends by pulling the flag from an opponent’s belt. This approach re-enforces proper techniques and fundamentals of the game and helps players progress to tackle football gradually.

Athletes will receive high quality instruction on fundamental concepts and schemes, as well as proper technique required to play offensive skill positions (QB, RB, WR, TE) and defensive backfield positions (LB, CB, S).  In addition to speed, agility, and conditioning, we place a heavy focus on coachability, sportsmanship, and teamwork that translates to all sports. 

Advanced Flag athletes will practice as a large group and be divided into teams for drills and scrimmages. As the season progresses, players will participate in weekly tournament-style play, in addition to our competitive house games on Saturday mornings.  

Program Goals

  • Provide a fun and competitive atmosphere for our players to learn the game of football.
  • Help our players develop life skills in leadership, teamwork, and work ethic.
  • Help our players develop an understanding of the game, the flow of practice, and the progression of a season.
  • Develop a pipeline of players equipped to flourish in our youth and modified tackle programs.
