If you’re looking to have fun this season, come and join the Howard County Flag Football League! Flag football is an immensely fun sport for all ages (K-HS) that also values safety and team-building. In flag football, there’s no tackling or heavy equipment like shoulder pads and helmets so you don’t have to feel nervous about your child’s safety. However, it still incorporates the many aspects of football that people love: the strategy, running, “plays”, challenge and critical thinking that comes with the sport. Flag football is a very exciting activity that allows your child the freedom to play in a controlled, supportive environment.
There are many wonderful coaches for the Howard County Flag Football League that work hard to not only create this great environment on the field, but off the field as well. The lessons and skills learned on the field soon translate to off the field, which is why we think sport is such an important part of a child’s life. And because flag football is such a team-oriented sport, the league becomes a kind of community where even when the game stops, everyone still feels like they’re having a great time hanging out with friends.
Although flag football is a competitive sport, on the Howard County Flag Football League we value getting better as a team and allowing kids to play and have fun in an equal-opportunity atmosphere. Our coaches work with all the kids to ensure they’re included, so don’t be shy if your child is coming in by themselves; they’re sure to be placed into a group and have a great time! And if you have a group of kids who want to stick together, just sign them up together and we’ll be sure to place them with each other as space allows.
So, if you’re looking for a fun and safe alternative to tackle football, and you have an energetic kid that won’t stop moving, sign up for the Howard County Flag Football League! Your child will build character, create great friends, and learn skills they’ll use for the rest of their life. But most importantly, they’ll be having the best times of their lives. But don’t just take our word for it! We offer flag football in many other locations, so feel free to look around and see the success we’ve had with our other flag football leagues.
