Football general information
Below are details for the upcoming Tackle and Flag Football seasons.
is a member of the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL) and is governed by its rules and regulations - see http://www.fcyfl.org/ for more information. We play full contact football under modified High School Rules (which are different than the NFL) and play games against opponents, of comparable size and ability, throughout the county and surrounding area. (7-16 age & weight matrix is below)
Our House League Flag football program is designed to offer a safe, dynamic, and competitive environment for young athletes to both discover and develop the skills and techniques necessary to succeed on both sides of the ball. The slate of practices and games ensures that all flag football participants receive comprehensive instruction and gain a keen understanding of the sport. (5-14 boys & girls) Flag Football will practice 1 day a week and play one game a week (Tuesday Practice day and Thursday Game Day). This will be a house league so travel is restricted to the local Fort Hunt community. Practice and game times will be 6:00 - 8:00 PM
The Fort Hunt Federals Flag Football League teaches players basic football skills, while promoting teamwork and sportsmanship.
Practices and games take place two days during the week leaving weekends free for family time, making this a convenient option for families.
In the game of flag football, teams run or pass the ball down the field in order to score a touchdown. The primary difference in flag is that it is a “no contact” game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players attempt to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt.
The players will be separated by age and placed on a team. They will play against kids in their age group. Players will practice on one weekday and play a game on the next designated weekday….ie practice Tuesday and game on Thursday.
Don’t let your apprehension keep your child away from the fun of the game. Youth sports help kids stay fit, build character and develop skills they will use the rest of their lives.
