CF Youth Football offers multiple levels of Flag and Tackle football for children in grades K - 6. Football program level is determined by player grade level (grade child is entering in Fall 2023). Programs available are:
Flag Football has two levels, Rookie Flag (beginner/K) and Advanced Flag (grades 1 and 2). In both levels, players don't wear pads (other than special headgear) and wear flags hanging off belts around their waists. Ball carriers are ‘tackled’ by their opponent by pulling off a flag. Players learn the basic skills of offense and defense, and learn simple plays and techniques. In Advanced Flag there is an increased emphasis on skills development, and game play.
The CFCA is implementing a policy of "flag headgear" for all levels of flag this year. All players at both levels will wear this special headgear. The sign-up fee includes a new headgear for each player (these are not reused like the hard shell helmets used at upper levels). New or returning players who already have this headgear from prior years can get a $35 discount on the Flag fee. Please specify that you have headgear to reuse at the time of signups.
Grades 3/4 and 5/6 (Tackle): Players wear full football equipment, and participate in ‘full contact’ football. Teams play by the same set of rules as school ‘modified’ programs play by, with a few additional rules included for safety, and to speed up games. Games are played on Sunday’s from August to October, and CF teams play against teams from other local school districts.
