The ULYFL Flag program is a developmental program which stresses learning the game of football and the fundamentals. The program is designed for players ages 5 and 6. Players 7 years old are encouraged to play in the D League (developmental tackle league) but will be considered on a case by case basis by the Board.
The Flag program practices two days a week starting Mid-August. Games usually begin the 1st or 2nd week of September, and will be on Friday nights and/or Saturday Mornings.
Flag players DO NOT tryout or attend the weigh in sessions. Flag players are placed on a team by the Flag Coordinator, who takes into account a players age, weight, and experience. The Flag Coordinator will try to place some players together based on family needs for rides to practice/games. The Flag program does NOT keep score and does not track a team's record - the program is purely developmental in nature.
