Town & Country offers flag football for youths ages 4-12 years old. T&C has one of the largest flag football programs in Central Texas. Flag football is a great way to introduce your son or daughter to the game of football. Flag is also a great way to keep playing the game of football if tackle football is not something you are interested in doing.
We have flag teams for all ages. The Pee-Wee (4-5 year olds), the Rookies (6-8 year olds), the Juniors (9-10 year olds) and the Seniors (11-12 year olds) play in the Central Texas Youth Football League (CTFYL), and play against other flag teams from around Austin.
The goal of the T&C flag program is to create a fun, exciting environment for the players. We look for them to:
Our Coaching Philosphy
The T&C flag teams are coached by volunteers who have years of experience in coaching football and other sports. As coaches, they are trained and certified by T&C and CTYFL. The coaches are also trained in handling injuries that might occur on the practice field or in games. It is critical that we create a safe environment for all our players to participate in each week.
Our coaches spend a great deal of time teaching the players the right techniques to use on the field. Whether it is flag pulling, running, throwing or catching, we want to make sure the players know the right, and safe way, to play. With the younger groups the focus is on the kids having fun and gaining a strong interest in sports because they are having fun. As the players get older, the focus begins to shift more to positioning, specific ball-handling, defense, offense, passing, receiving and running. It’s these techniques that help bring more safety to our players on the field.
Above all else, Town & Country football strives to help our young players continue to grow into young adults, and help them enjoy the game of football.
