Flag Football Leagues

ACTIVITY

Flag football is an action packed game which emphasizes finesse, speed and deception as compared to the power aspects of tackle football.  Due to the rules and strategies of the game, it is a fun activity for players of all sizes and ability levels. Men’s teams have seven players.  Co-rec teams consist of six players (three women and three men).  Teams will be scheduled for four weeks of round robin league play followed by single elimination playoff tournaments for all teams that do not forfeit during the regular season.  The seeding of teams into the playoffs will be determined by league standings with various divisions tiered by win-loss records. National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) rules will govern play.
