Flag Football

League Information


Welcome to Atlanta Youth Sports Association's flag football program, where young athletes embark on an exciting journey of skill development, camaraderie, and sportsmanship. Our flag football leagues cater to various age groups, ensuring that every child can experience the joy of playing the sport in a positive and supportive environment. Unlike traditional leagues, we focus on fostering a love for flag football through inclusive and non-competitive play.

What Sets Us Apart:

  • Skill Development: Our programs prioritize fundamental skill development, allowing players to hone their abilities in passing, catching, flag-pulling, evading, and teamwork. Coaches provide personalized attention to nurture each child's potential.
  • Inclusive Atmosphere: We believe in equal opportunities for all players, ensuring that every child receives ample playing time and encouragement regardless of their skill level. Our leagues are designed to be inclusive, welcoming children of all backgrounds and abilities.
  • Positive Coaching: Our dedicated volunteer coaches are passionate about empowering young athletes. They undergo comprehensive training and are equipped with the knowledge and enthusiasm to inspire and guide players on their flag football journey.
  • Teamwork and Sportsmanship: Beyond the game, we emphasize the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. Players learn valuable life skills such as collaboration, communication, and respect, fostering an environment where friendships flourish.
  • Parental Involvement: We recognize the vital role parents play in a child's sports experience. We encourage active participation, whether it's cheering from the sidelines, volunteering, or simply providing unwavering support.

Join us at Atlanta Youth Sports Association flag football program, where your child can explore the world of flag football, make lasting friendships, and develop essential life skills in a nurturing and encouraging setting. Thank you for considering us for your child's sports journey.


We understand that families need time to plan their schedules, which is why we will post and share the schedules for all of our recreation leagues one week prior to the start of the season. We want to ensure that everyone is aware of the game times and locations well in advance, so there are no surprises. However, please note that there may be some changes to the schedule during the season due to elements beyond our control. We will do our best to communicate any changes as soon as possible and make adjustments to minimize any inconvenience. At AYSA, we prioritize transparency and open communication with our families to provide the best experience possible for our young athletes. Thank you for choosing AYSA for your child's sports activities.
