WHAT TO EXPECT?


FOCUS ON FUN

Our youth football leagues emphasize total player development, the building of team dynamics, and healthy competition. Specially designed game rules ensure that individual players get more touches with the ball and more opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed on and off the field.

DEVELOP SKILLS

Upward Flag Football is designed for young athletes to discover their passion for the sport as well as improve their game through healthy competition. Each week players will participate in one hour long practice to develop their skills and one hour long game to give them a chance for healthy competition. 

TEACHING LIFE PRINCIPLES

Upward Flag Football strives to develop youth mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. We don't want to simply teach players about football, but to equip them with team building and interpersonal skills that will help them develop beyond the football field.
