What to Expect At Each Age Level

6U Flag Football (4-6)
Our 6U Flag Football division is offered every spring children who are league ages 5 and 6 years old (age as of January 1st of that year). The 6U age group is our first introduction to flag football.  The focus is learning the basic fundamentals of football (throwing, catching, running), while also learning game play.  Teams will play on a 120 yard x 53.3 yard field and use a Wilson K2 or Pee Wee size football. The 6U age group will generally practice twice a week prior to the start of game and keep their practice slot once games begin.  Practices will be held during the week and on weekends (if needed).  Teams will play 1 to 2 games per week (usually on Sunday but weeknights are possible) and will typically last for 6 weeks (not including playoffs). There will be a referee on the field in addition to 1 coach during game play.  Participants can expect practices to be held in the Greenbelt area with games being hosted at a few select fields within Prince Georges County.
