WELCOME TO THE 2022 FLAG FOOTBALL REGISTRATION

OUR PROGRAM

The Flag Football program will be open to boys and girls from Pre-K through 6th grade. The Flag Football program will be administered by DSYSA and game-day operations will be run by Neighborhood Sports. Teams will all wear NFL branded team jerseys. 

Bring your own team up to 10 players or register as a free agent! Play is a 5v5 format. No blocking is allowed and all players are pass eligible.

DSYSA Football partners with Neighborhood Sports to make the season a success! Our flag program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork. Players develop skills that will help them succeed on and off the field. 

The game is 5 v. 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 50-yard playing field where participants may run or pass the ball. Teams start at their 5-yard line and have three downs to move the ball past midfield. Once a team has crossed midfield they receive a new set of three downs to score.

VOLUNTEER TO COACH!

Coaches needed, no experience necessary! We will provide a basic flag playbook and practice plans if you need them. Get $50 off your player's registration if you sign up to head coach.

As you register, please keep in mind DSYSA Football is a volunteer-run organization that relies heavily on parent coaches. If you are interested, or maybe have questions regarding coaching, please reach out and we can help answer any questions you may have. Know that you are not alone, and we are here to help your season be a success! flagfootball@dsysa.org


DIVISIONS

The divisions will be broken into Pre-K/Kinder, 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, and 5th/6th grades. Grades are based on the current school year. Each player will register individually; however, they may request a coach through the registration process.  Coaching requests are not guaranteed, but they will be honored as best we can and it does help in the team creation process.  Be sure to select that you will volunteer as a coach or assistant if you are interested.
