Blocking is the most physical this game will get and by that, it is a common sense, open hand blocking (no shoulders) with absolutely no finishing to the ground or over physical play. Once a player is blocked and controlled with enough to get the ball carrier by, there should not be any extracurricular shoving or finishing of the block. On defense - If a blocker is approaching, the use of shoulders or anything but hands is not allowed. Instead the use of hands to defeat a block and/or an evasive move is the only thing allowed. This is a point of emphasis and will be called more frequently by the referees.

 

What is Flex Football
  • 9 v 9 play
  • Three (3) OL, five (5) WR/RB, one (1) QB
  • Traditional point values & 1st downs
  • Open-hand blocking and blitzing
  • SoftShell helmets & shoulder pads
  • Tackling via flag belts or two-hand touch

Flex Football bridges the gap between flag and tackle for the first time. Inspired by the NFL’s high tempo, low impact, assignment and scheme-focused approach to practice, Flex is the ideal experience to develop true football fundamentals. The value lies in the development of advanced football skills while keeping the head out of the game.

Flex Football fills the gaps between Flag Football and traditional tackle football, and presents a safe, cutting-edge solution to the following dilemmas:

I’m a parent who isn’t ready to let my son/daughter play tackle football.  But, I’m looking for something a little beyond traditional flag football.  I’m looking for a sport that will introduce limited contact in a controlled setting, while still giving my son/daughter an idea of what tackle football would be like.

I’m a flag football player.  I’m not looking to make the jump to full tackle football yet.  But, I am interested in trying a new flavor of football that brings in more advanced football skills like blocking, pass rushing, press coverage and more.

I’m a tackle football coach, and I need a way for my team to train together in the offseason in a realistic, game-like setting. The 7v7 options aren’t a good fit because they do nothing for my offensive and defensive lineman, they aren’t helpful to installing our full offense, and our defensive players don’t get the realistic reps they need to prepare for the season.

Fast-Paced Football in a Limited-Contact Environment.

Our pro-inspired 9v9 game format utilizes the NFL’s practice philosophy of high-tempo, low-impact play. Flex provides superior football development and player progression in a non-tackle environment, allowing one to experience the thrill of football without the associated risks of repetitive impact.

A SMARTER STYLE OF PLAY

Inspired by our Experience as Pros and Designed to Develop the Physical and Mental Skills Required for Today's Game.

A SMARTER FORM OF CONTACT

Properly Engage in Limited-Contact at Game-Speed just like the Pros Practice.


FLEX BENEFITS ALL STYLES

FLAG

PERCEPTION

From the first snap to the last, the difference is obvious. FInally a style of play that's fast-paced, safe and played in a high-tempo and controlled contact environment

 

PROGRESSION

Provides a pathway for players to progress from flag into a safe platform. All the benefits of real football without putting their bodies in jeopardy with unnecessary contact.

 

GROWTH

Reduces drop-off from older flag players because they are now able to stay involved with their league from Flag through Flex in a controlled and safer environment.

 

SAFETY

Equipment designed to provide limited-impact protection, facilitate proper technique and designated blocking "zones" to maximize skills. Flex rules implement zero tolerance 

7v7

REALISTIC

Looks and feels like real football because of the run game. No more expectations of continual pass plays. Quarterback scrambles, pre-snap mental checks and adjustments with the threat of blitzes inject excitement back into 7v7.

 

PROGRESSION

Players can use Flex as a platform for skill development and game IQ. Adding 300-1000 game like repetitions in the off-season is certain to take your game to the next level.

 

GROWTH

Flex Football could increase your numbers by up to 40% like it has for other leagues around the country. Linemen are simultaneously included with your skill players, which creates a new entry point to recruit players that were previously not ready for tackle football.

 

SAFETY

Flex gear is designed to provide limited-impact protection, facilitate proper technique and designated blocking "zones" to maximize skills. Flex rules implement zero tolerance policy for overly aggressive play.

TACKLE

PROGRESSION

Newcomers or veterans of the game looking to refine their skills in the off-season, Flex builds the skills that make better football players without putting their bodies in jeopardy.

 

NEW ENTRY POINT

A significant number of kids want to experience "real" football that aren't physically and/or mentally ready for tackle. Flex allows this demographic to get a taste and feel for the game. Players and parents are able to gain confidence in a limited contact environment that enables them to be more confident and safely transition into tackle.

 

DEVELOPMENT

Flex Football helps develop physical and mental skills for individuals and teams. Flex forces players to understand the game by teaching proper schemes and concepts while strengthening physical skills, leading to a superior Fall season.

 

SPRING-BALL

Most tackle players implement a Spring Flag platform which is a step backwards in progression. Flex enables tackle players to play in the same environment as elite high school, college and pro players and keeps the "big guys" in the game.
