At the Brighton Youth Sports Department we strongly believe that flag football is a sport that everyone can play regardless of skill, size, or strength.

  • Games are based on the NFL "Air it Out" format, where each team plays with 5 players on the field at a time.
  • Games and practices are held at local parks. Each child plays equal time no matter the skill level.
  • All practices will be held on weekdays and are determined by the team's coach. Coaches will call the parents to let them know the days practices have been scheduled. 
  • Games are scheduled on Saturdays at Brighton Park.
  • Players are placed on a team according to age.
  • Each child will be given a game shirt for them to keep.
  • Players are not required to wear cleats. No player are allowed to wear metal cleats.
  • Players will also be issued flag belts, by the coaches, to wear during games and practice.
  • If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
