NFL FLAG is the premier youth football league for boys and girls in grades K-8. The program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork.
NFL FLAG Football is a popular five-on-five game filled with "NON CONTACT" fun and action. In this game, the offensive team plays for a first down at midfield and a touchdown in the end zone. Running and passing plays are allowed, although there are “no-running zones” at midfield and near each goal line. The defensive team covers receivers, rushes the passer and grabs flags to make “tackles.”
The Hillcrest Flag Football season begins in early September and ends in late November. Games are scheduled every Sunday (8am thru 3pm) with occasional Friday night games under the lights, ending with 2 weeks of playoffs for competitive divisions.
