NFL FLAG Powered by USA Football provides opportunities for children age 4-17 to enjoy America's favorite sport. Player’s benefit by being physically active through non-contact, continuous action while learning the fundamentals of football, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship.
SPYA Football will be partnering with LMYA (Lower Mac Youth Association) and AFC (Athletes for the Cross) to provide an exciting experience for our younger players. This will replace our existing in-house Micro Flag Program. We will also be taking registrations for any player interested up to age 17. If we do not have enough players at a given age group or to form more teams at a given age group, teams will be formed by combining players from SPYA, LMYA, and AFC.

The SPRING season is meant to be an additional activity NOT a replacement for a current spring sport (Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse, Field Hockey, and Soccer) unless a player does not participate in a Spring Sport. We will build rosters knowing that players will be participating and their PRIMARY Spring Sport first.
