Melrose Flag Football

Our youth flag football leagues focus on socialization, playing skills, teamwork, and basic game strategies. Each league will run for 8 weeks of games. The 2-3 and 4-5 Grade divisions will play 8 regular season games. The 6-7 Grade League will play 6 regular season games followed by a tournament with consolation games in the final two weeks. All practices and games will take place on Saturday afternoons on the Cabbage Patch Field and Fred Green Field. Players will have a 30 minute team practice immediately leading into their team game of two halves of 20 minutes running time. Each game will be staffed with referees. Each player will receive their own game jersey. Space is limited.

Instructional Kindergarten and Grade 1 Flag Football Program

This program is designed to introduce kindergarten and Grade 1 students to flag football. The program focuses on basic fundamentals, socialization, and skill building. For an hour each week, the kids will split up into different groups and go through different drills to learn all the different aspects of Flag Football (throwing, catching, handing off, pulling flags, offense vs deffense, etc.). As the season continues, the drills will become more enhanced and mini scrimmages will be included. Volunteer head and assistant coaches will run the practices along with the assistance of Melrose High School Football players.
