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

We believe kids should play flag football. Playing non-contact flag football allows players to develop position skills that improve a player’s abilities.

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.

Defensive Players: learn Defensive End, Nose Tackle, 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.

With only 8-9 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 a fast-paced game with many more plays and repetitions.
