Boulder, CO Flag Football -- Saturday Morning Pick-Up Flag Football Game
***Saturday Morning Weekly Pickup Game!*** Come and join us for some friendly flag football! We are out here every Saturday morning, regardless of RSVP count. ALL are welcome - any age, gender, and level of ability or experience. You only need suitable footwear (artificial turf field), water and a desire to play some football. Games typically get started around 9:30 and we stop some time after noon. Feel free to show up any time in between. Rules vary slightly based on the number of players, but usually go as follows: - First down is every 2 cones, so first down distance varies between 11 and 20 yards depending on where a runner is downed - QB has 6 seconds to throw if no defender crosses the line of scrimmage (a defender must count aloud) - If defenders want to blitz they must begin the play a number of yards off the line (depending on number of players, between 1 and 5 yards) - When blitzed the QB is allowed to run, otherwise must stay behind the line - No flag guarding. This includes unintentionally swiping hands while running and stiff-arming - The ball carrier cannot leave his feet (no jumping forward, diving, etc) - Any player, on offense or defense, has a right to their position on the field. Basically this means don't bull-rush when blitzing (you must go around blockers), don't truck as a runner and don't run routes through defenders - A player is down where his hips are when the flags are pulled rather than where the ball is - No fumble recovery: the ball is dead where it lands. A ball in the air is up for grabs There is limited contact, such as blocking, jamming at the line, and getting pushed out of bounds, but no one should get laid out. We try to keep the match-ups as even as possible. Above all, we want to avoid injury and have FUN! Please RSVP in advance, if possible. Drop ins and new players always welcome. See you on the field!

Whether you are curious to learn about Flag Football first hand or you're an experienced player who wants to keep playing competitively, you will find a sense of community here. We all share the common bond of appreciation for the game of football -- NFL or College football fans, fantasy football players, or gamers -- motivated by the fact that no matter the outcome on the field, running around for a couple of hours is a excellent way to get in shape, meet great people and make friends in the Boulder area.
