EXTENDING YOUR NON-TACKLE EXPERIENCE

There's no doubt that Flag Football is an exciting game and excellent way to introduce kids to football. Unfortunately, it lacks the essential element of player progression. Currently, the only option after standard flag is full-contact tackle football, which means there's no skill-building phase. This missing gap results in participation drop-off due to players adopting other sports, quitting football all together or entering tackle unprepared.

The answer is Flex Football, true to "real" football but without the contact. As a player’s skill develops and their desire to strap on the pads grows, parents now have an exciting option. Flex affords the experience and skill progression kids want from tackle football, but in a controlled and safer environment.

Aside from the progression and skill-building benefits, Flex brings a fresh look and feel to football that appeals to current players as well as a new wave of players. This next generation of the game is resulting in the growth of leagues and retention of players, without the pressure to play tackle football.

REIGNITING THE GAME

THIS MONTH'S TRAILBLAZER

  • Football's landscape is changing. Popularity of football remains high at the High School level but fear of concussions has severely impacted enrollment at the Youth level, rightfully so. I believe Flex is the bridge that safely connects Flag Football to High School Football and beyond.
