Ultimate Flag, which originated with AYFL, is the first and only flag format in Northern Virginia that incorporates the use of helmets and shoulder pads with low-contact format to provide a safe flag football environment. Like NFL mini camps, players expand their football skills without the fear of major injury as often seen due to head on collisions in unprotected flag football environments.
Ultimate flag football is a hybrid football league that incorporates elements from contact football and flag football into an innovative approach with the following objectives:
Introduce new athletes to football in a low-contact manner,
encourages passing, receiving, blocking, and running in a low-contact format, and
focuses on footwork, hand skills, and football fundamentals
All Players will wear Helmets and Shoulder Pads. Incidental contact to unprotected players cannot be fully eliminated in current flag football leagues, thus a semi-padded uniform combined with elements of flag and tackle football gives young athletes the ability to develop advanced football skills while greatly reducing the risk of injuries.
Develop advanced football skills that cannot be accomplished in a traditional flag football environment.
No Running Restrictions (e.g. no red-dots)
Grades K through 8th (current school grade).
Games will be played on Sundays to avoid any interference with other spring sports. Teams will practice 1-2 nights per week. Practices are encouraged but not mandatory as we understand that players might be committed to other spring sports.
The 2024 UF Season will span from March 4th, 2024 to June 9th, 2024
