About KFL Flag Football

KFL has teamed up with the National Football League to bring flag football to the area. The country's most recognizable youth flag football program, NFL FLAG is played in more than 1,000 leagues across the United States. KFL will utilize NFL Flag for kids ages 5 to 7 (or Kindergarten through 2nd grade), in one division.

Through the KFL, NFL Flag players receive:

  • NFL team-branded jerseys (kids keep them)
  • NFL FLAG football belts
  • USA Football player membership
  • Player's Insurance Coverage
  • Every player will run/touch the ball at least once per game

KFL Combine and Draft

Each child will participate in the KFL Combine within their playing division for evaluations by coaches. Kids will go through a series of drills similar to the NFL Combine. KFL will then conduct a draft for each team. Players who miss sign-ups and evaluations will be placed on a team based on the draft order that was established.

The draft will be sorted by age group and each team will have the same amount of kids in each age group (at least as close as possible) to strive for as much parity as possible. For example, the 8 year olds will be drafted first, then the 7 year olds, 6 year olds, and finally the 5 year olds. KFL will hold a combine for flag but will not provide the compiled ratings for the draft. Each head coach will need to rate and keep track of their own ratings. KFL will let head coaches know who were all-stars the year before.

Playing Time

Every child will at least start and play the entire game on offense or defense no matter what age group. It is KFL's goal to play kids on both offense and defense. It will be the coach's responsibility to place players in positions that best benefit the team not where the player or parent wants their child to play. Our goal, over playing time, is to teach responsibility, accountability, competitiveness, "out of control" good sportsmanship, playing to and above one's own ability, and to never give up.

Players can be denied playing time for multiple unexcused absences from practices, disciplinary reasons on and off the field, and poor behavior by parents. Coaches will work with KFL Board Members about kids receiving less playing time.


NFL FLAG powered by USA Football is also part of NFL PLAY 60, the league's youth health and fitness campaign. The program promotes physical fitness by getting kids active for 60 minutes a day.

In addition to the fun of coaching, all coaches of NFL FLAG receive:

  • Free coaching tools

  • Coaching insurance eligibility

  • Coaching education

  • Team web pages

  • Equipment for their team
