Youth Flag Football


Kids learn the fundamentals of the game in a safe, low-contact environment. Led by volunteer coaches, young football players work on the basic offensive and defensive skills in drills and games.

The Y will follow recommendations from the CDC, Governor Cooper, public school systems, state and local health departments, as well as the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.
