Flag Football

MAR-JCC Flag Football is the premier youth flag football program in the South Florida community. Whether you are just starting out or playing at an elite level, we have a program for you! The program offers youth and adult in-house flag football leagues, skills training academies, private coaching, and travel teams for our advanced young athletes. Games, practices, and our skills academies are played on our state-of-the-art turf field.

Offering all the fun of tackle football without the same risk of injury, flag football is emerging as the youth sport of choice among parents who question whether kids should play tackle football. Patterned after regular football, flag football is a no-contact game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players try to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. It’s the perfect game for boys or girls ages 4 and up. If your child wants to play football, why risk the injuries in tackle? Make it flag football instead!
