Coed Flag Football Fall 2022




If your little one loves the idea of football but you’re concerned about safety, we have the answer! The WTAA youth flag football program provides all the fun and excitement of tackle football without the same risk of injury. Our ages 5-6 curriculum for this age group aims to improve balance, eye-hand coordination and motor skill development. Your child will learn the basics of the game, awareness of offensive and defensive field direction, and skills such as running with the ball, passing and catching. The playbook for this age group is kept simple to enable players to grow more comfortable and self-confident in the sport. We rotate players through various positions so everyone learns the importance of playing as a team member. Based on skill level at this age, game play typically involves more running plays, but as the season progresses, more passing may be integrated. To ensure the levels of learning and fun are kept at their highest for our little athletes, rules are enforced with an emphasis on teachable moments, scores are not kept. At this stage, the most important outcomes are to develop a love of the game, increased self-confidence and to have fun!

Wareham Tigers Athletic Association Fall Flag Football is a non-contact, coed, 5-on-5 flag football program for boys and girls ages 5-6 years old (as of 1/01/2022). Younger ages permitted on a case-by-case basis. We are a part of  NFL FLAG FOOTBALL.  NFL FLAG is the country’s leading flag football program, with unmatched standards of safety, education and support.

We believe football imparts great lessons and provides kids with skills that serve them well throughout their lives. We encourage young athletes to play flag football at an early age to better learn the wonderful game of football.  Starting flag football at ages 5-6  helps teach the fundamental aspects of football, allowing them to progress into tackle football with a working  knowledge of the game. Most importantly, playing flag football is fun for both boys and girls.
