About Lions Spring Flag


Flag is Fun!

The York Region Lions flag program is a great way to learn football fundamentals, while meeting new friends and getting outside! After a long winter of lockdowns, 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!

Non-Contact Programs

Our flag football programs are non contact. 

Program Structure

Our program runs May, June and July. 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. 

Tournaments

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.
