Flag Football Passing League

ACTIVITY

The Passing League is a fun, competitive, non-contact way to play football. It is all passing, played on a 40-yard field plus end zone, and allows scoring both on the offense and defense. Passing is now the feature offense, and thus defense, of most teams. Participating in a passing league offers athletes an exceptional, competitive way to hone their skills. Leagues will be offered for Men’s teams and Open teams. A men’s team must have 5 players. An Open team also has 5 players (no gender specific rules or player ratio requirements and is recreational in nature). Teams will be scheduled for a 3-game team pool play followed by single elimination playoff tournament for all teams that do not forfeit during the pool play portion.
