SYSA Fall Football Training

Fall Flag Football 2021

The 2021 Fall Flag Football season will consist of practices AND games starting in September. Practices will take place during the week with games being played on Saturdays at Andrew Rypien Field.

Our mission is to provide sport activities for all youth where everyone plays, develops skills, is taught good sportsmanship, and learns the value of being a team player.

Covid Guidelines

Spokane is currently in Sporting Guidelines for Covid Activities/Phase 3. Flag Football, as a moderate risk sport, will require both Coaches and Spectators to wear masks. Athletes will wear masks during training and on the bench but not while actively participating in a competition. If Spokane moves back to Phase 2 – games can be scheduled and played but athletes will be required to wear masks during the game. Fully vaccinated individuals are exempt from the requirement to wear a face covering and also exempt from physical distancing requirements.

Flag Football is considered a moderate contact sport.

Within Phase 3,

  • Moderate contact outdoor sports athletes allowed to remove facial coverings for competitions. Facial coverings must be worn by athletes when training or when not actively competing in a game or match against another team or when on the bench waiting to play. Coaches, trainers, and officials must wear face coverings at all times. Officials may remove masks during games.
