Our goal for the Northern Alberta Flag Football League is to provide every child with an equal opportunity to play flag football. We believe our structure will give the kids the opportunity to learn and play multiple positions on both offense and defense. Our main focus is making sure everyone is having FUN while learning the basics of the game, teamwork and important lessons in sportsmanship. We have improved the quality and value of our program to provide our players with the best experience possible.
Players, coaches or teams who play to have FUN. Your child will learn the basic fundamentals of passing /catching and this program is designed to help develop an understanding of rules, teamwork, fundamentals and sportsmanship. This is a great way for our players to learn the basics of the game, and develop the skills and techniques necessary to succeed on both offense and defense. The slate of practices and games ensures that all participants receive comprehensive instruction and gain a keen understanding of the sport. Although it’s recreational, games are still competitive in nature.
