Youth flag football is a modified form of tackle football in which ballcarriers are downed by pulling off a marker, or flag, loosely attached to a belt, rather than by tackling. Players benefit by being active through non-contact, non-stop action while being able to learn lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship as well as learning the fundamentals of football. Flag football rules may vary slightly from league to tournaments. Here are the flag football rules for two of the more popular leagues NFL Flag and Under The Lights Flag Football.


7v7 football leagues and tournaments play similar to a traditional game of tackle football, but with a reduced level of contact and slightly different rules. Rules for 7 on 7 football may vary by league and tournament. Here are the rules according to USA Football.


There are many benefits playing in a youth tackle football league can bring. If you are looking for an activity that can enhance your child’s life, then tackle football is a great choice. From improving their focus and coordination skills to enabling them to make new friends and spend more time outdoors, tackle football truly is an all-around fantastic sport for kids.

Parents be aware tackle football is a more difficult sport to play. Beginning at the line of scrimmage, this task instills concentration in a number of ways. Winning the war at the line of scrimmage takes a lot of hard work and mental toughness. Here are the rules from two of the more popular national tackle leagues Pop Warner Football and AYF – American Youth Football.


Playing in football tournaments against teams from different leagues can be an effective way for youth athletes team to assess its strengths. If a team is faring well in its league, it can be easy for the players to believe that they’re exceptional. However, a couple of losses in a tournament against teams that execute better can be a good learning lesson. Through tournament play, your son or daughter will quickly learn that he or she can always get better — which is a mindset that every young athlete should have.


Youth football camps immerse kids in specific skill developments. It can be a fun time for beginners who will learn basic skills and determine if they want to pursue the game. If they do, they will have a foundation to carry them forward.
