The only 9v9 Limited-Contact Leagues in Southern California
Built and designed by NFL players and industry experts that shared America’s love for football.

Flex Football’s 9v9 style provides a game like feel in which there is NO HEAD OR SHOULDER CONTACT AND NO TACKLING. Players are focused on proper fundamentals and understanding the game.
A NEW WAY TO ENTER THE GAME OF FOOTBALL
A SMARTER WAY TO EXPERIENCE FOOTBALL
A SAFER WAY TO DEVELOP AS A FOOTBALL PLAYER
A LEAGUE IDEAL FOR ALL TYPES OF PLAYERS; BIG OR SMALL / FIRST-TIMERS OR VETS
Flex Football™ is the pro-inspired 9v9 game format that utilizes the NFL’s practice philosophy of high-tempo, low-impact play. Flex provides superior football development mentally and physically. Game was created for existing tackle players, flag player looking to take their game to the next level, and or new players looking to get into football for the first time. Flex Football is a TOUCH football program that includes blocking so we can teach players proper techniques at an earlier age. We will be able to give a realistic, game like experience, without the impacts, keeping our players fresh in the offseason, and get new players for the fall. There is a reason why all NFL teams utilize this style of play in their non-contact practices.
Offense: 1 QB, 3 OL, 5 Eligible Skill players
Defense: 2 DL, 3 LBs, 4 DBs
All positions accounted for
Traditional 1st downs
2-hand touch to ‘down’ a ball carrier
Focuses on the run and pass game
Boys and Girls 6-14 are welcome! No previous football experience required. No tryouts. Everyone will play
We firmly believe having participants play within their grade level accomplishes the most 'symmetry' within an age range. We feel kids are best served in the game of football with kids of their relative development.
Score will be kept, playoffs will occur, champions will be crowned. Kids will learn the lessons of how to handle adversity and success.
Playing Flex Football™ requires the use of soft-shell “Flex Gear”. This is the same gear utilized by the NFL and college teams during their “flex practices”; run at high-tempo with low-impact and no head or shoulder contact. All kids will be required to wear a soft-shell helmet and soft shoulder pad. We have acquired an exclusive discount with Rocksolid “Flex Gear”. They are the official Flex Gear provider of NFX and the only gear made specifically for football.
