9 Sports® offers flag football leagues in communities across the nation specifically for families who want the benefits of involving their kids in one of America’s favorite sports without the same dangerous risks that can lead to head injuries. “i9 Sports is proud to be a leader in raising national awareness about safety in youth sports,” i9 Sports President and CEO Brian Sanders said. “Flag football has become a popular choice for parents across the country, even those that played tackle football themselves, because it offers the benefits of learning the game but with less risk of injury.”
i9 Sports flag football leagues, camps and clinics allow your child to learn the fundamentals of the game through age-appropriate skills and drills. In the game of flag football, teams run or pass the ball down field in order to score a touchdown. The primary difference in flag football is that it is a “no contact” game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players attempt to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. The program is designed for your child to build on performance and ability throughout the season without the same risk of injury as tackle football. At all ages, our flag football program is geared toward developing your child’s athletic skills, as well as teaching sportsmanship values that extend far beyond the playing field.
