YMCA Flag Football

The Bloomington-Normal YMCA is partnering with the Bloomington Knockers Flag Football team this fall. Participants will learn the fundamentals of football without the tackling or contact. Youth flag football is a fun, fast-paced way for kids from entering kindergarten through fourth grade to master the rules of the game of football while developing teamwork and sportsmanship. 

Youth flag football teams practice at least once per week learning skills in passing and receiving, interceptions and offensive and defensive plays. Games are played on Saturdays and rules ensure all players get a chance to experience the full game, and not just one position all season.

Program Dates:

Practices begin August 11, 2020

Games begin August 29, 2020 through October 3, 2020
