Frequently Asked Questions:

Absolutely. During the registration process, simply list the boys’ names in the “schedule/team preference” box. Or create a creative team-name and have all the boys list that. We’ll make sure they all end up together. We do however limit the number of players on one team to 10.

Done deal. We have a huge number of “free-agents” each year and we’re more than happy to place them on a team with other kids their age. It’s a really inclusive environment and your child will fit in easily.

Yes, but we can’t guarantee a spot on that roster. We’re usually able to fill out parent coached teams and find a volunteer but that’s not always the case. In the event there aren’t enough players (or no parent volunteers), we’ll transfer you to a Koa-Coached team and ask you to pay the difference.

No. Saturday or Sunday (depending on your choice) is the only day of football and you’ll both practice and play in that time window

We rent fields from Montgomery County to play our games. If they close fields due to inclement weather, we will have to postpone games. Each season will have one make-up week at the end, if necessary.

NO. We’re absolutely committed to making flag football a positive environment for everyone to enjoy. This is NOT a league for parents to live through their children or take away from the kids’ experience.

Counter-intuitively, yes. We set a registration date so we can make our operational plan for the summer. You can still sign up after the registration deadline, but you will be charged a late registration fee to cover the administrative costs of entering the player individually.

If you cancel your registration after the registration close date and find someone to take your spot, we’ll refund you 80% of the program cost in cash. If you cancel your registration after the registration close date and fail to find someone to take your spot, we’ll credit your Koa account with 80% of the cost.

Once the season is started, we only issue refunds under extremely extenuating circumstances.

Who is Koa Flag?


We’re your neighborhood ball players. We’re a nation of spin-moving, touchdown celebrating, intercepting football-crazies who are out for two things: Getting better and having fun.

Koa was built on the idea that sports are important in the lives of young boys and girls. From the skills they develop to the lessons they teach to the relationships formed along the way. Come join us and experience the Koa difference for yourself.

Our football program has leagues in both the Spring and Fall, with the perfect league for everyone’s developmental dreams.
