Flag Football Overview

What it is and how to join in

American football is a fantastic sport, but with helmets, shoulder pads and some seriously tough tackling, it can seem a bit daunting to younger children. That's why the NFL developed flag football - a non-contact version of the sport.

Flag football is the perfect way to learn the ins and outs of American football without the worry of expensive equipment or heavy tackles. It is fun and rewarding. Participants use team work, with skills such as throw, catch and run principles.

Flag can be played from the age of 7 by both Boys and Girls. The skills taught are applicable to the contact version of the sport, so leaning those skills often leads onto older children getting involved in the contact version making for an easy transition.

The Exiles have an established Flag Football programme, playing regular tournaments as part of he SEYAF with other teams from Kent and Sussex. 

We would like to hear from any children who wish to come along and be part of something new and exciting. Sessions are on Sunday mornings from 10-12 and the first three are free of charge. All sessions are run by our team of qualified coaches.

All you need to do is to turn up and everything is provided. If you are interested, please contact us via contactus@kentexiles.co.uk
