i9 Sports® offers youth flag football leagues for kids in communities across the nation.
Our youth flag football programs for kids are perfect for families who want their young athletes to learn to play one of America’s favorite sports without the same dangerous risks that can lead to head injuries.
“i9 Sports® is proud to be a leader in raising national awareness about safety in youth sports,” i9 Sports CEO Brian Sanders said. “Flag football has become a popular choice for parents across the country, even those that played tackle football themselves, because it offers the benefits of learning the game, but with less risk of injury.”
The primary difference between flag football and tackle is that flag is a “no contact” game. Like tackle football, teams run or pass the ball down field in order to score a touchdown. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players attempt to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. Once a flag is pulled, the player is considered “down”.
At i9 Sports, we will never stop doing everything we can to better the world of youth sports. This includes making sure our programs are continuing to evolve so we can provide the best youth sports experience to our athletes and customers. That is why we have partnered with USA Football!
“Our team is excited to establish this partnership with USA Football whose approach supports the best interests of youth athletes that love this sport. Working together with industry leaders, our goal is to provide the best youth sports experience we can for kids and communities across the country. USA Football and its Football Development Model aligns perfectly with that goal,” said i9 Sports Vice President of Operations Chris Snyder.
USA Football will help power our youth flag football offerings with progressive, age-appropriate skill instruction aligned with it’s Football Development Model (FDM).
