Outdoor Flag Football

SYSA Flag Football and NEW NFL Flag Football is a fun recreational fall program for youth in grades 1-8. The season is designed to help youth learn the basics of Flag Football where each players plays at least half of each game.

Volunteer Coaches are usually parents who enjoy the game of football and want the kids to play. Most teams will practice in the evenings, twice per week beginning 1-2 weeks before the first game.  All 7 games are scheduled on Saturdays at Andrew Rypien Field.

The season culminates with the Candy Bowl, a jamboree format optional tournament.  Registration for the tournament is by Team and has a separate team fee.  Coaches will receive more details about the Candy Bowl as the season progresses.

Visit the SYSA Fan Gear website to order sweatshirts or t-shirts.
