Flag football is a popular sport among kids and is played with similar rules to regular American football. However, instead of tackling players to the ground, players wear a flag on their waistband that is pulled off by opposing team members to signify a tackle. The program is generally designed to be safe, fun, and inclusive for all participants. Each child gets equal playing time, ensuring that the less skilled players get a chance to improve and contribute to the team. Moreover, the program teaches teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect for others.
