Flag Coaches FAQ'S

Posted Dec 17, 2018

How do I become a coach? What documentation is required?

All interested coaches, assistant coaches and volunteers are required to complete the Coaches online registration form. Completion of this form gives permission to have a background check taken. 

How many coaches are needed per team?

It is recommended that there be one head coach and one assistant coach per team, if possible.  Assistant coaches will be required to clear a background check as well and will be responsible to coach games if the head coach is unavailable. 

What happens if the head and assistant coach is unavailable for game day?

Once the season’s schedule is created, we will not change game times due to coach unavailability. ONLY coaches that have cleared the background check are eligible to step in during game time. If there are no coaches available, contact the league directors as they will find someone to coach your team.  We strive to eliminate schedule changes.

What are the rules for NFL Flag Football?

Rules for Flag Football can be found  here

How many players are permitted on one team?

The league targets a maximum number of 10 to ensure quality playing time for everyone.

Can I bring a full team to play? (ie: I coach a tackle program in the fall and wish to form a few teams for the spring, but prefer to keep my players together…)

Yes. The league reserves the right to fill the balance of the team based on player requests, geographical considerations, school attended or stated skill set.

Do I need prior football coaching experience?

No. Coaches will be provided with a playbook and will be trained to understand NFL Flag rules and applicable codes of conduct during the seasonal coaches meeting.
