2021 Fall Flag Football

UpdatedMonday February 1, 2021 byGeorge Mullin.

2021 SUDBURY YOUTH TRAVEL FLAG FOOTBALL

Welcome to all returning and new players to another fun and exciting season with Sudbury Youth Football and Cheer.  Flag football is the fastest growing youth sport in America and we had an exciting 2020 season to celebrate.  The 2nd, 3rd, 4th grade levels in our travel flag football program took home the EMAYFC 7vs7 championship titles last season! With Covid restrictions our middle school athletes transitioned to a similar flag football format with a "passing only" league which saw our 6th & 7th grade programs each bringing home the championship title! .

The SYFC Flag Football program is unique to other programs offered in Sudbury.  Our program is exclusive to residents of Sudbury and is played by grade (not based on age or weight).  Normal gameplay in our league is an 8 vs 8 format which gives every player a chance to be an important part of the team.  We use the American Youth Football flag football rules that introduce blocking and pass rushing with a primary focus on developing skills at all positions.  Games are fast paced with controlled limited contact.  There is NO TACKLING.  Our flag coaches are committed to offering 2 practice sessions each week starting in the middle of August with games taking place each Sunday.  Coaches have an option to provide an additional practice session on Saturdays

Our season begins in the middle of August and ends in early to mid November depending on the grade and teams specific schedule that will be released in late August.
