Flag Football


The MPPR Flag Football League is centered around fundamentals and skill development. Players learn offense and defense, running routes, passing, hand-offs, defensive positioning and “tackling” by pulling the flag off their opponent’s belt. The league offers players, of all skill sets, the experience of playing flag football in a team format. The goal of the program is to keep kids active, provide positive social relationships, improve and enhance skills, and most importantly, have fun.
