NFL FLAG is a non-contact sport. There’s no diving, blocking, screening, or tackling allowed.
Instead, to “tackle” the person in possession of the ball, the opposing team needs to pull one or both of their flags off.


Flag football is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the country—and it’s easy to see why. As a non-contact team sport, kids get all the physical, emotional, and social benefits of playing football, without the physical contact.  

But more than anything, flag football is pure fun—no matter your skill level. Teams compete 5 on 5, creating tons of engagement on the field at a fast-moving pace. 

Here’s why over 500,000 athletes choose NFL FLAG football: 

  • Nail the fundamentals: Whether you’re new to the game, a seasoned player, or interested in making the transition to tackle, flag football is the perfect environment to develop your skills and improve your technique. 

  • Convenient commitment: We know your schedule is already jam-packed. That’s why NFL FLAG teams meet once per week to briefly practice before games each Sunday, which start April 18 and run through mid-June.  

  • Non-contact sport: Simply put: no contact is allowed—like tackling, blocking, and screening—making flag football the right choice for many families. Plus, no contact also means no bulky, expensive equipment. 

  • Accessibility: Everyone can play flag football. You don’t need a specific build or skill set. And with NFL FLAG leagues being co-ed, everyone can join in on the fun. 

  • Play like the pros: NFL FLAG is the only flag football league that allows players to wear officially licensed NFL gear.
