Learn football fundamentals and embrace team work
First game scheduled for December 2, 2023

Flag Football is an enjoyable sport for both boys and girls to play, and very exciting for parents to watch! The YAP Flag Football program is designed for your child to have fun, learn football fundamentals, and develop teamwork skills in a safe environment.  Football will help your child develop quick decision making skills, follow directions and build their confidence. The success of our season will be determined by your child's improvement in these areas alone, and not by the number of wins or losses.
