Youth Flag Football

Play football in a safe environment where the focus is on building skills, making friends, learning teamwork, and having fun. Don’t pass up this fast-paced, non-contact sport for boys and girls!

Fall Youth Flag Football League

Hone your skills, get some exercise, make new friends, and get a chance at making a big play. At South Suburban, our goal is that everybody plays. We encourage coaches to play all players equally and allow every player to try every position.
