Football Programs

NFL FLAG is the premier youth football league for boys and girls ages 4-17. The program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork. Opportunity Sports is a local NFL League that offers fall, winter and spring season flag football in North/South Austin area since 2011. Launched in 1996, the FLAG Football program is designed to educate young people about football while emphasizing participation and sportsmanship. Players learn skills and lessons that help them succeed both on and off the field.

The game is 5 on 5 flag football that teaches the basic skills of football running, passing, receiving, and defending. Games involve non-contact rules that eliminate all forms of blocking and tackling. The program is played on a 50-yard playing field where participants may run or pass the ball. Teams start at their 5-yard line and have three downs to move the ball past midfield. Once a team has crossed midfield they receive a new set of three downs to score.

One exciting aspect of the program is the equipment…all players get actual NFL team flag football jerseys (Players get to keep the jersey). Teams play a complete season, all teams make the playoff tournament, and everyone gets a trophy. All players get a NFL reversible jersey to keep!
