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, 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 from May through to end of June, 2022. 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. We finish off our flag season by inviting other Centres to participate in our end of season Flag Football Tournament!
York Region Lions Football is proud to call its home Aurora, Ontario. Our homefield is St. Maximilian Kolbe CHS on Wellington, but we play at other local fields. Spring 2022 begins May. Times for each age group will be updated here by April 1, 2022.
Registration for our Spring Flag programs will begin January 1, 2022. Check back then and don't forget to include the names of friends you'd like to play with!
