The WTAA offers coed 5-on-5, non-contact flag football teams for the town of Wareham as well as other surrounding communities specifically for families who want the benefits of involving their kids in one of America’s favorite sports without the same risks that can lead to head injuries. The WTAA is proud to be a leader in raising awareness about safety in youth sports. Flag football has become a popular choice for parents across the country, even those that played tackle football themselves, because it offers the benefits of learning the game but with less risk of injury. Players will also be more prepared to progress into tackle football if they so choose.
The WTAA flag football leagues, camps and clinics teach your child the fundamentals of the game through age-appropriate skills and drills. In the game of flag football, teams run or pass the ball down field in order to score a touchdown. The primary difference in flag football is that it is a “no contact” game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players attempt to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. The program is designed for your child to build on performance and ability throughout the season without the same risk of injury as tackle football. At all ages, our flag football program is geared toward developing your child’s love for the game, as well as teaching sportsmanship values that extend far beyond the playing field. As your player progresses in their flag football career, they will be better suited and prepared to play at the tackle football level, further reducing the risks of injury due to lack of the development of basic football knowledge and physical skills.

      • Coed Flag Football ages 5-6 as of 4/01/2021:
         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! NEW FOR 2021: We will be offering an open-seeded playoff and Super Bowl for our 5-6 division!

      • Coed Flag Football Ages 7-9 as of 4/01/2021:
        As kids get older, they like the challenge of new things, but as a parent you want them to be safe. Our non-contact flag football program is the ideal way to let your child play football safely. For any skill level, WTAA flag football curriculum will teach your child the fundamentals of the game and build upon their developing physical and mental capabilities. Instruction and drills are specially designed for this age group to improve spatial awareness, eye-hand coordination and greater accuracy in throwing and catching the ball. Special emphasis is placed on teamwork and good sportsmanship as players of this age begin to understand the impact they have in relation to others. Scores are kept and rules are enforced in a fun, positive environment with a continued emphasis on teachable moments. 

      • Coed Flag Football Ages 10-13 and Ages 14-17 as of 4/01/2021 (includes high school seniors):
        Because players at this age are bigger and physically more capable, the level of play is elevated and games move at greater speed. Instruction within the WTAA curriculum recognizes the capabilities of this age group and balances reinforcement of game fundamentals with age appropriate skill development and emphasis on good sportsmanship. Running and passing plays are more sophisticated and the importance of offensive and defensive game strategy are taught. Our “everyone plays” philosophy ensures all players have the opportunity to develop their skills. Expect to see marked improvement in self-confidence and teamwork at this stage. Scores are kept and rules are enforced by trained officials. As players begin to experiment and grow more creative with their improved skills, the games naturally become more competitive, but always in a fun, age-appropriate way!
