Based in Frisco, Texas since 2004, Flagfootball4fun in conjunction with NFL and USA Football, is a flag football league for kids in ages 4-14, with the emphasis on community fun. This league is the largest single location flag league in Texas. Over 90 teams participate each spring in the league. Each player receives a team jersey and flags. All league play takes place on Sundays. All players are required to wear a soft-shelled helmet during gameplay. We recommend the Gamebreaker brand soft shell football helmet.
Registering a Team: We do accept team registrations. First, the coach must contact the league directly to have a team created in the registration system and to choose a team name. Next, the league adds the team to the registration system. Players then are able to choose that team during the registration process. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your team.
Player Pool and Team Formation: When you register, you can request to play for a specific coach or team. Upon coach approval, you will be placed on the team. Otherwise, you will be put in a player pool and we will assign you to a team with a volunteer coach. We will accommodate any friend and sibling requests first and then we will try to put you with kids from your same school and in the same grade.
Coach Volunteers: We rely on parents to volunteer to coach the players in the player pool. Please consider volunteering. You will be the coach of your child’s team. The time commitment is 1 practice a week and 1 game a week. You pick the day/time/location of practice. Some coaches practice during the week at a local school or park. Some practice before the game on Sunday in the open space by the fields. We can provide Rule book, sample play books, and we are available any time for any questions or support you need.

Q: What is GAMEBREAKER Soft Shell Helmet?
A: Flagfootball4fun has partnered with GAMEBREAKER to provide the only state of the art certified soft shelled helmet available. GAMEBREAKER’s uniquely designed padded & soft protective football headgear is molded out of the finest EVA rubber foam, offering maximum protection from impacts and collisions. The hook and loop chin strap combined with adjustable laces in the back, enables the protective headgear to custom fit each person’s head. Lycra surrounds the outer shell, promoting airflow throughout, thus allowing heat to escape the head.

When you register, you will have the option to list a friend, sibling, or coach that you would like to have placed together with your child. Sibling requests are guaranteed, as are requests by coaches to coach their own child. The vast majority of the time, we are able to accommodate friend requests. These requests are not guaranteed, however, as on rare occasions, we are not able to accommodate them.
We do currently accept team registrations. First, the coach must contact the league directly to have a team created in the registration system and to choose a team name. Next, the league adds the team to the registration system. Players then are able to choose that team during the registration process.
Coaching in our youth league programs can be a fun and rewarding experience. The commitment is limited to a few hours each week. Most coaches decide only to practice on game day (1) hour before the game.
