The York Region Lions flag program is a great way to learn football fundamentals, while meeting new friends and getting outside! It's a great opportunity to find out why flag football is the fastest growing sport in Ontario. With a structured program featuring 5 on 5 or 7 on 7 competition formats, boys and girls will learn speed, passing and most importantly - fun!
Our flag football programs are non contact.
Our program runs mid-August, September and October. Each age group will have two sessions per week (except for long weekend weeks) that are 1 hour long; usually M/W or T/TR. Sessions include skill development, learning plays, competition between groups. York Region Lions coaches follow the YRFA Flag Program Book to ensure a smooth transition between age groups.
Our ability to host 1-2 flag tournaments is completely dependent on the province's health directives. We have them planned and have our fingers crossed! Tournaments will follow all York Region Public Health and provincial health protocols.
