Mid Rivers Football has been providing Flag Football in 2005. Flag Football is open to boys & girls. Mid Rivers hosts two flag football sessions per year: spring & fall. Spring Flag Football is open to players in following grades:
- Pre-K (Age 4) through 8th Grade (Age 14)
- Fall Flag Football is open to players in Pre K (Age 4)
- Kindergarten (Age 5)
- First Grade (Age 6)
For fall football, players in 2nd grade and older play tackle football.
Flag Football is an excellent way to introduce players to the fundamentals of the sport of football in a limited to no contact environment.
2nd Grade and youngest Teams play 5 on 5 and on a reduced sized field. 3rd Grade and older play 7 on 7, on a regulation width field, but only from the 40 yard line in. Teams consist of 10-12 players so that there is significant playing time for all players. Players of all skills and experience are welcome. Players will learn new and improve existing skills and fundamentals.
Teams practice one night per week. Practices are organized by the individual coaches, so the night & location (spring) are up to the individual coach. In the fall session, all practices are at Brown Road Park in old town St. Peters but are still one night per week.
The Spring session begins the first weekend of April and ends the weekend prior to Memorial Day weekend. Teams play a minimum of 7 games. The season concludes with a weekend-long tournament. Games are played primarily on Sunday afternoons. Easter Weekend, Mother’s Day Weekend, and weather reschedules will be played on Saturdays.
The Fall session begins in September and concludes in November. Teams play a minimum of 7 games. Games are played on either Saturday or Sunday afternoons. The schedule is dependent upon our tackle football schedule, which does not come out until mid-August.
A team jersey is provided to each player. Players are required to purchase a mouthpiece. Cleats (not metal) are encouraged, but not required. Some teams may decide to purchase and upgraded jersey.
Players must be 4 years old prior to the season beginning (March 15th for spring, August 15th for fall). Fall Players also must be no older than first grade or age 6 on 7/31 of the calendar year.
