Let's throw some pigskin at forest park. We will be playing at the World's Fair Pavilion. Bring a football if you have one. I will bring one at the game, however the more the merrier. Look for parking on Concourse Dr.
We are a diverse group of flag football fanatics. We welcome novice & experienced adult players of all ages. Our motto is safety first, then sportsmanship, fun, exercise, & competition. We use high quality flags. Our rules GUARANTEE that men & women receive the ball equally. Our concise rules create a fun and competitive game. Come make new friends, have fun, and get great exercise at the Forest Park.
BASIC RULES OF THE GAME:
We play a respectful and fun style of flag football with NO taunting or other aggressive behavior. We are here to have fun and make new friends. We genuinely welcome everyone, but if you have a bad temperament then you are probably better off playing somewhere else.
Teams have 4 downs to reach midfield; then another 4 downs to reach the end zone.
The defense may blitz once every four downs. To protect the Quarterback from hand and arm injuries, once a rusher crosses the line of scrimmage, he/she may only go for the QB's flag and may not attempt to bat the football.
WE PLAY NO CONTACT FLAG FOOTBALL! That means we do not allow tackling, pass interference, illegal contact, or contact blocking.
A tackling and/or pass interference call will be made anytime a player makes contact with another player primarily with his shoulder, elbow, or forearm.
We do allow contact blocking
Penalties will be enforced for tackling, pass interference, illegal contact, and illegal blocking.
Both offense and defense can make foul calls. All players should respect and not argue over each other’s calls. An organizer will resolve any disputes.
