Flex Program

UpdatedMonday March 14, 2022 bySAYFCO.



Flex Flag Football is a growing alternative to full contact football and teaches basic skills and concepts of the game.   SAYFCO Flex Football provides boys and girls in grades K - 1, a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in light contact (blocking is allowed), continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork.

Flex Football is a variation of flag football that provides young players a "bridge" to tackle football.

The Basics:

  • 7 on 7 for grades K/1
  • Traditional first downs
  • Limited contact
  • Players are introduced to blocking
  • No shoulder blocking
  • No tackling
  • Players wear flags, just like traditional flag football
  • Players wear soft-shell helmets and soft-shell shoulder pads

The SAYFCO program is designed to educate young people about the techniques and skills of youth football while emphasizing participation and sportsmanship. Our team will be competing with towns across Central Mass.
