The Park Ridge Flag Football program is committed to developing and inspiring youth athletes between the grades Pre K and 8th. We offer non-contact 7 on 7 flag football with no weight restrictions. The key sports attributes we focus on teaching are good sportsmanship, teamwork, respect, coordination, and physical fitness. 

Our main objective while providing a community-based flag football league is to ensure that all athletes get the opportunity to be a part of a youth sports program that teaches the importance of competition, work ethic, and having fun in sports. 

The coaches in this program will focus on teaching players how to be a part of an organized practice based on fundamentals and discipline. Our coaches also teach basic football strategies that will help build football IQ and an overall understanding of the game. Above winning games, coaching will concentrate on the individual player level first.

Most of all, we want everyone to have fun and to play with their neighborhood friends!

What We Teach Student-Athletes

SPORTSMANSHIP

We teach our players the importance of having respect for all players coaches and referees, as well as following all the rules. 

TEAMWORK

All our players learn and the importance of how to be a part of a team so that he or she and his or her teammates can all succeed. 

WORK ETHIC

We not only teach our players the importance of hard work to improve but also that it is fun to accomplish the goals they set. 

RESPECT

We teach our young athletes how to be well-mannered individuals on and off the field so they represent our organization with pride.

Flag Football Program Structure

The Park Ridge Flag Football program consists of 5 divisions participating in non-contact flag football with no weight restrictions, no tryouts or drafts, and REQUIRED equal playing time and position rotations, which means ONE FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE. 

The Board acknowledges and respects that ALL PRFB Players could play Flag football thru 8th grade, and still effectively transition to high school contact football in 9th grade. While not the Board’s preferred ‘progressive’ path of Flag to Tackle, we RESPECT a Parent/Players choice and each player’s unique developmental circumstances.

* Minimum Age to participate is four (4) as of Sept 1st.
