Recreational vs. Competitive (14/15 & 16/17 Divisions Only)
Our goal for the Regina Youth Flag Football League is to provide every child with anequal opportunity to play flag football. We believe our structure will give the kids the opportunity to learn and play multiple positions on both offense and defense. Our main focus is making sure everyone is having FUN while learning the basics of the game, teamwork and important lessons in sportsmanship. We have improved the quality and value of our program to provide our players with the best experience possible.
Recreational “Fun Doesn’t Mean It’s Not Competitive”
Players, coaches or teams who play to have FUN. Your child will learn the basic fundamentals of passing /catching and is designed to help develop an understanding of rules, teamwork, fundamentals and sportsmanship. This is a great way for our players to learn the basics of the game, and develop the skills and techniques necessary to succeed on both offense and defense. The slate of practices and games ensures that all participants receive comprehensive instruction and gain a keen understanding of the sport. Although it’s recreational, teams are still competitive in nature, but are not competing to represent Saskatchewan at Nationals.
Players, coaches and teams who play to win, and have a skill level to reflect that. Our Competitive League format is a natural fit for young players who have developed into all-stars on their respective recreational teams. These players will develop a greater love for the game and improve their individual skill set at a much quicker pace by playing with and against other highly skilled players and teams. Players create their own teams and find their own coach(es). These teams will compete for an opportunity to represent Saskatchewan at Nationals.
