Why play TYL NFL Flag Football?

TYL Flag Football program is the premier NFL Youth Flag Football recreational league for boys and girls ages 5-17. Our league is an official program of the NFL LEague. 

Our program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork. Players develops skills that will help them succeed on and off the field. The game is 5 on 5 flag football and teaches the basic skills of football running, passing, receiving and defending. Games involve non-contact rules that eliminate all forms of blocking and tackling. The program is played on a 70-yard playing field where participants may run or pass the ball. Teams start at their 10-yard line and have four downs to move the ball past midfield. Once a team has crossed midfield they receive a new set of four downs to score.

Teams practice once per week for up to 40 minutes and play games on once a week for 7 weeks. All teams make the playoffs held on week 7 (playoffs are single elimination with teams playing 1-3 games during the playoff tournament). Winning teams are crowned "Super Bowl" Champions.


Advantages to TYL NFL Flag Football

- Our program develops "skill position players". Many of our participants have gone on to start on their middle school, high school, and college teams. 

- Quarterbacks learn how to make independent decisions and call plays. In our league, the quarterback does not have the option to run, placing more emphasis on recognizing and reading defenses and passing the football. The throwing windows are smaller, which aid in developing accuracy. A defensive blitz on any potential play help the quarterback develop footwork, mobility, and quick thinking under pressure.
- Wide Receivers/ Running Backs learn proper stance and start, hand placement, route terminology, running routes, reading defenses, how to create separation, catching in traffic and running after the catch.
- Our defensive players learn Linebacker, Defensive back, Safety, and Pass Rushing skills. Players on defense develop footwork, backpedaling, reading the quarterback, breaking on the ball, and catching interceptions. Players also learn man to man and zone coverage techniques.
- We believe kids should play flag football.  Playing non-contact flag football allows players to develop position skills that improve a player’s abilities.
- With only 10 players per team and 5 on 5 games, players enjoy increased participation with playing time and touches on the football. Our 30 second play clock creates an up tempo game with many more plays and repetitions.
- We offer a Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer league seasons.
