YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Flag Football

We play Family-Friendly Flag-football for ages 6 to 18.  Our program includes an official NFL Flag reversible Jersey, NFL Flag belt and flags, 8 regular season games and a player’s award.  This is a 100% volunteer coaching program and training is provided. YMCA staff guidance is provided throughout the season.  This is a program to ensure players have fun in a non-contact football game.  The YMCA Flag Football Program has partnered with USA Football and use the NFL Flag Rule Book, guidelines and coaching resources.  


We are excited to share that we will be resuming a modified season of outdoor youth sports to follow the current recommendations and guidelines provided by our government, the CDC and local health officials. Our spring season of Youth Soccer, Itty Bitty Soccer and Flag Football will resume Monday, June 8th with team practices held weekly. 

Because we've seen such a great response from parents and kids, we've decided to reopen registration for anyone else who'd like to join. Learn more or register online below, or click here to register for youth soccer.


Check out these games, drills and training videos put together by Y staff and athletic coaches to support our young athletes during this time of social distancing.
