In Youth Flag Football, the focus is on teamwork in a positive and structured environment. Children will learn how to throw, catch, run routes and other aspects of the game that will keep them active and help them develop skills such as hand-eye coordination. In addition, children will have an opportunity to develop leadership skills and build self-esteem as they improve their technique.
The Y’s youth flag football programs are now sponsored by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Flag Football is typically offered at most Y centers in the Spring (March-May) and Fall (August-September) sports seasons. Bitty Flag Football is also available for players ages 3-5 years.
Online registration for the fall 2019 season is now closed.
