2024 Spring Youth Flag Football League
2024 Spring Youth Flag Football League

The Town of Archer Lodge fall football program offers an exciting and inclusive way to enjoy the sport of football without the physical contact associated with traditional tackle football. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to the game, our program provides a fun and safe environment for players of all ages and skill levels.

Participants will learn the fundamental skills of football, including passing, catching, running, and flag-pulling techniques. Coaches will focus on developing teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play, creating an atmosphere that promotes both individual growth and camaraderie among team members.

Our program emphasizes the importance of safety by replacing tackling with the use of flags worn by each player. When an offensive player with the ball has their flag pulled by a defender, the play is considered down. This rule eliminates unnecessary physical contact, making flag football a great option for those who prefer a non-contact sport.

Teams will compete in an organized leagues and post season tournament, providing players with the opportunity to showcase their skills and engage in friendly competition. The games are fast-paced, high-scoring, and filled with exciting plays, ensuring an entertaining experience for both players and spectators.

Whether you're looking to stay active, learn new skills, or simply have fun with friends, our flag football program offers an excellent opportunity to engage in a thrilling sport that combines strategy, athleticism, and camaraderie. Join us today and be a part of the flag football excitement!

Volunteering as a youth sports coach or special event volunteer can be a rewarding experience that positively impacts the lives of young athletes and the community as a whole. The process for becoming a youth sports coach volunteer can vary based on the organization, sport, and local regulations. Here's a general outline of the typical steps involved:

  1. Research and Choose a Sport: Decide on the sport you're interested in coaching. It's important to choose a sport that you're knowledgeable about and passionate about teaching to young athletes.

  2. Complete Application: The Town of Archer Lodge will require you to fill out a volunteer coach application. This application will ask for your contact information, coaching experience (if any), references, and any relevant certifications. Once your applications is cleared you will receive a link to complete your background check.

  3. Background Check: The Town of Archer Lodge requires coaches to undergo a background check to ensure the safety and well-being of the children. This is typically done to screen for any criminal history that could pose a risk to the young athletes.

  4. Training and Certification: Depending on the sport and the organization, you might need to complete certain coaching training and certification programs. These programs often cover topics such as coaching techniques, child safety, first aid, and rules of the game. Some sports might also require you to become certified by a national governing body.

  6. Parent Communication: Effective communication with parents is crucial. Be prepared to discuss your coaching philosophy, practice schedules, game schedules, and any other relevant information with parents or guardians of the young athletes.

  7. Coach Responsibilities: Understand and be ready to fulfill your responsibilities as a coach. This includes planning and conducting practices, teaching skills, fostering teamwork, ensuring safety, and providing a positive and encouraging environment for the athletes.

  8. Season Participation: Once the season starts, you'll be actively involved in coaching practices, games, and potentially tournaments or events, depending on the level of play.
