Youth Flag Football

Play football in a safe environment where the focus is on building skills, making friends, learning teamwork, and having fun. Don’t pass up this fast-paced, non-contact sport for boys and girls!

Fall Youth Flag Football League

Hone your skills, get some exercise, make new friends, and get a chance at making a big play. At South Suburban, our goal is that everybody plays. We encourage coaches to play all players equally and allow every player to try every position. Kids will get the chance to throw passes, make catches, pull flags, run for touchdowns, and even get a Pick 6. Our league is a great way to get out and play.
