FLAG FOOTBALL

NON CONTACT FOOTBALL

Flag Football is a form of American Football in which the players do not wear a helmet or other protective gear. Tackling is also forbidden. Teams consist of 5 players. One team has control of the ball, the Offense. The other team, the Defense, tries to stop the Offense.

The Offense tries to get the ball in the 'Endzone', the last 10 yards of the playing field. If they succeed they score a Touchdown, worth 6 points. The offense has attempts (downs) to get the ball across half of the field. If they do this they get a first down and keep trying to get the ball into the endzone. The Quarterback  can attempt this by either handing off the ball to a runner or by throwing the ball down the field to a receiver.

The Defense tries to stop the offense from either throwing or running the ball. They can do this by either intercepting the ball and stopping it from getting to the receiver, or by pulling of the Flags that hang from every player's belt. When a defender pulls a flag from someone who is carrying the ball the play is stopped and the offense can have another attempt. If the Defense can do this 4 times before the Offense gets a First Down or Touchdown the teams switch roles.
