Thank you for your interest in Youth Flag Football with the Brighton Parks & Recreation Department. Brighton Youth Sports Department we strongly believe that flag football is a sport that everyone can play regardless of skill, size, or strength.

  • Games are based on the NFL "Air it Out" format, where each team plays with 5 players on the field at a time.
  • Games and practices are held at local parks. Here at the Brighton Parks & Recreation Department, each child plays equal time no matter the skill level.
  • Practices will be held twice a week. Coaches will call the parents to let them know the days practices have been scheduled. All practices will be held on weekdays and are determined by the coach of that team.
  • Games are scheduled on Saturdays.
  • Players are placed on a team according to age.
  • Each child will be given a game shirt for them to keep.
  • Players are not required to wear cleats. No player will be allowed to wear metal cleats.
  • Players will also be issued flag belts, by the coaches, to wear during games and practice.
  • If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
