Flag football is a version of American Football in which the basic rules of the game are similar to tackle football.
Instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove the flag or flag belt from the ball carrier to end a down.
Physical contact is not permitted between players, as it will result in a penalty for the team initiating contact.
As broader expansion and additional interest by young athletes within the NorthWest Junior Football league North Creek Junior Football Association,
for a first in the 2019-2020 season will be offering flag football as initiation to players in our community.
Players who started playing flag football often have opt to play tackle football the season after.
