FAQs

  • What is NFL Flag LA?

NFL FLAG LA is the premier youth flag football league for boys and girls ages 6-15 in the Los Angeles Area. The program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork.

In this six-on-six game, the offensive team plays for a first down at midfield and a touchdown in the end zone. Running and passing plays are allowed. The defensive team covers receivers, rushes the passer, and grabs flags to make “tackles.”  

NFL FLAG LA is an insured youth sports organization which includes a $1,000,000 liability policy. We take extra steps to differentiate our program. This ensures a fun program for the entire family. We provide value-added programs that support development of your child’s agility, fundamentals, skill, and technique.
