Minis flag football is the perfect introduction to the sport for ages 3 to 5! It is an instructional and recreational 8-class youth flag football program designed for preschoolers to have fun while learning rules and skills of the game. Flag football means there is no contact or tackling. Kids practice the fundamentals of flag football like catching, passing, defense and offense and in most cases, going the right way down the field through fun drills and games.
The focus in this program is on inclusion, teamwork, sportsmanship and building confidence. Minis do not play official games or keep score, it is all about fun and learning! All teams are co-ed and led by YMCA staff. This program requires parental involvement to help encourage the most fun and participation. Practices with scrimmages are held once per week. Each player gets a YMCA uniform top to wear on and off the field.
