This is fun, highly competitive group but any age/sex is welcome. We play every week for 4 years in Denver and previously for 3 years in Texas. We pick new teams each day and sometimes a second time during the day depending on when people leave.
We do a 7 yard immediate rush/blitz with unlimited rushers with usually 0-2 blockers who are live for pass plays also. Blockers are free to use shoulders and hand but not elbows/forearms while rushers do the same (means no swim/rip moves since they sometimes end up with elbows in the face)
Have you ever been a league where the QB gets in trouble and runs every other play leaving the receivers stranded? We eliminated run plays in Texas 5 years ago to create a much faster, more competitive game. Ball can only be advanced past the line of scrimmage with a forward pass so receivers get even more passes than traditional flag football as well as more pics for the D-fense. We've tried this every way imaginable over the past few years and these rules always make the games more fun, fast, and competitive. We have also eliminated punts and kick offs, you start on your 5 so we don't have people crashing into one another. Flag football is a non contact sport and detailed rules are all over the internet for your viewing. If you are crashing into people you are playing wrong.
Ever been in a league where you drive for 30 mins only to play literally for about 45 mins total field time? Most people stay in ours for for 2-3 hours! But we also have enough people where some play for 90 mins etc. You have that Freedom and flexibility here. Just be patient if you show up late to get worked into the next game.
Unlike leagues that charge $500-$600 per team and only last 8 weeks (with no equipment), we provide everything for $20 annually including flags, mesh jerseys, pylons, and footballs. Go to the "Pages" section and check the "Paid list" to see when your fee is due next. All the gear is continually replaced. We are typically negatively funded so you must bring your fee by the 3rd game. This covers you for 1 year and gives you a chance to check-it out.
Minimum 12 RSVP's by Friday 2:00 PM or we cancel, otherwise we play year round!
