Flag Frequently Asked Questions

Who can play flag football?

Our flag program is open to Kindergarten-4th grade boys and girls who want to learn the fundamentals of football in a recreational and fun environment appropriate for this age group. Kids who live in or go to school in the Lincoln Boundary can join our team!

Kids will be broken into teams by grade level, with typically 7-8 kids per team. The flag program is a great way to learn skills and team play that are different from other youth sports.

Registration

Registration is $150 and opens on April 1st 2020. Early Bird discount of $25 goes through May 31st, 2020.

Practices & Games

Practices begin Wednesday August 12th and continue every Wednesday evening from 5:30-6:30pm at West Sylvan Middle School through October. Practices in August of 2020 may be at a different location due to potential construction at West Sylvan.

Games are Saturday mornings at schools around the Portland metro area, and we typically play on the home team's high school field. Games begin in early September (after Labor day) and typically run through the end of October.
Players will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to the game to warm up. Games consist of two twenty minute halves with a 5 minute half time. 

how is the game played?

Youth flag football is 5 on 5 and is considered a "non-contact" sport similar in physical play to youth soccer or basketball - no pads required.

What equipment is required?

Each player needs to provide their own cleats, black shorts and a mouth guard. LYF will provide Lincoln Jerseys, flags/belts & soft shell helmets.

Flag Football players will be wearing soft shell helmets by Gamebreaker. For more information visit their website.
