JR. JAGUAR FLAG FOOTBALL

(Ages 6-8*)

Flag football players will register at the same time tackle players register.

 

The North Creek Junior Jaguars Football Association (NCJJFA) has developed a flag football program for kids aged 6-8 years old who are under the minimum age and/or weight to play tackle football in our league. Our flag teams get the opportunity to compete against other teams within GEJFA including Bothell, Woodinville and Inglemoor Jr. Football programs.

 

The Junior Jaguars Flag program gives young players a chance to be exposed to the benefits of playing organized sports and a great base of football knowledge to build on if they choose to go on and play tackle football.  Most of our flag players have decided to sign-up for our tackle program when they are no longer eligible to play in our flag program.

 

Our flag teams usually each have 8-10 players each and play 5-on-5 football.  This ensures that each player gets as much playing time as possible.  The age and weight limits provide a safe, fair environment.

 

Flag football season starts in September during the first week of school and runs until the end of October.  Our season concludes with the Flag Bowl the first week in November.
