Flag football is a fun sport allowing boys and girls to be active, have fun while learning a non contact game of football. All members of the EFFA try to place all players on equal and fair playing teams while staying in each age group. Elevations are held to place all players on equal and fair teams. This is a great opportunity for all involved to meet new people.

It is highly recommended that players wear cleats for flag football as we will be playing on all grass surfaces, which can be slippery after rain or from dew. Also, mouthguards are recommended. Also, shorts or sweatpants or windpants or sweatpants WITHOUT POCKETS are preferable.
