Frequently Asked Questions

NFL FLAG season is here!

Join us this for the upcoming season of Driven Flag Football!

Why NFL FLAG? 
Flag football is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the country—and it’s easy to see why. As a non-contact team sport, kids get all the physical, emotional, and social benefits of playing football, without the physical contact.  But more than anything, flag football is pure fun—no matter your skill level. Teams compete 5 on 5, creating tons of engagement on the field at a fast-moving pace. 

Here’s why over 500,000 athletes choose NFL FLAG football: 

  • Nail the fundamentals: Whether you’re new to the game, a seasoned player, or interested in making the transition to tackle, flag football is the perfect environment to develop your skills and improve your technique. 
  • Convenient commitment: We know your schedule is already jam-packed. That’s why NFL FLAG teams meet once per week to briefly practice before games each Sunday.  
  • Non-contact sport: Simply put: no contact is allowed—like tackling, blocking, and screening—making flag football the right choice for many families. Plus, no contact also means no bulky, expensive equipment. 
  • Accessibility: Everyone can play flag football. You don’t need a specific build or skill set. And with NFL FLAG leagues being co-ed, everyone can join in on the fun. 
  • Play like the pros: NFL FLAG is the only flag football league that allows players to wear officially licensed NFL gear.

4. DOES YOUR LEAGUE PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY AT THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS AT EITHER PRO BOWL OR SUPER BOWL?
NFL FLAG hosts the largest and most high profiled flag football tournaments in the country. By playing in an NFL FLAG league you get an exclusive opportunity for a chance to punch your way into one of these prestigious events. 

5. WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH MY REGISTRATION?
Your registration secures your spot on a team for the entire season, and each team receives official NFL gear, including a jersey and flag belt. In fact, NFL FLAG is the only flag football league that allows players to wear officially licensed NFL gear. 

6.  WHAT ARE THE NFL FLAG RULES?
NFL FLAG is a non-contact sport. There’s no diving, blocking, screening, or tackling allowed. Instead, to “tackle” the person in possession of the ball, the opposing team needs to pull one or both of their flags off. For a complete list of NFL FLAG rules, visit our website. 

7.  How are Individual Players Placed on Teams?
This is a league designed to keep children in similar grades together with as much parody as possible.  Therefore, individuals are placed on teams using a multitude of criteria including but not limited to grade, ability, experience, school, and buddy request. While all of this information is collected during registration team placement based on this criteria is not guaranteed. Refunds will not be issued due to team placement.

8.  How many players are on a team?
Most teams have 8-10 players.  However, we do reserve the right to stretch these guidelines if the league deems necessary.  

9.  Does the league supply uniforms?
Every Flag Football player in our program receives an NFL reversible team jersey and a flag belt to keep with your registration.  

10. Who are the coaches?
Parent and Community volunteers. Driven Flag Football does not provide coaches. Once teams are assembled, parents will be recruited to coach their team. Training is provided for all parents who wish to be a coach. No experience is necessary. If we are unable to secure a coach for a particular team, that team may be refunded.  

11. Who are the Officials and are they qualified?
Most of our referee's are NFL Flag certified. Each official is trained, licensed, insured and certified through the state.  They are very good at what they do and will call a fair game for both sides.  

12. How much playing time can my child expect?
All of our programs promote participation, fun, and fundamentals. Coaches are required to fairly allocate playing time equally among all players on the team. We will do our best to assure all players receive equal playing time.

13. What do I get for my registration Fee?
A six to eight-week season including practices (depending on season), use of well groomed fields, certified officials, NFL FLAG reversible team jersey and flag belt, interactive website, organized administration, and a lot of FUN for you and your child!

14. Are there playoffs?
Not at this time.

15. Do all flag football players need mouth pieces?

It is absolutely mandatory that all players are wearing a mouth piece before stepping on the field.

16. How do I register?
All of our registrations are taken online.  

17. What if it rains on game day?
You will be notified by us (or your coach or team parent). Only Driven NFL Flag can cancel games. We will do our best to notify you of any cancellation as far
in advance as possible. Please note: we do play in rain provided it is not lightening or a torrential down-pour.
We will make every effort to reschedule the game to a later date.

Please note: COVID guidelines from local and state health authorities will be enforced.
