Trinity Youth Football League Flag Program Guidelines

As a division of Trinity Youth Football League, our Flag Football Program mission is to develop young athletes with the aptitude to become leaders and Christian servants both on and off the football field through lifelong values of teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, and a superior work ethic.  Our goals align with USA Football in being able to maximize our players enjoyment and skill development while providing all players meaningful playing time and the opportunity to succeed.

It all starts with our Flag Football League as we introduce the game of football to our young athletes.  Built upon the Football Development Model (FDM) from USA Football, our program is designed to teach the sport where our children can grow both mentally and physically as an athlete and person, all while having fun in a safe and teamwork environment.

·       The second Saturday in September following Labor Day, TYFL has made a conscious effort to lead by example with a ‘Game Day of Giving’ built into our season schedule each year.  This special Saturday allows our players an opportunity to give back to our communities.  Such efforts have included honoring our First Responders to having our children bring together much needed pantry items for those families in need.  Our children will learn how to be successful both on and off the football field in ways they will cherish the rest of their lives.
