Learn to Play Flag Football (1st-3rd Grade)

It’s time to practice your touchdown dance. During YMCA Recreational Flag Football, players experience the joys of learning positions, developing skills and giving lots of high fives. Beyond skills and rules, your kiddo builds a foundation in sportsmanship and works on the all-important concepts of following directions and listening to a coach.
