Youth Flag Football Classes
A safe, fun, and enjoyable route into American Football for kids of all ages.
Does your child love the thought of playing American Football? As a parent, you’re probably a little concerned about the dangers of full-blown tackles. Kids flag football is the perfect gateway as it removes the contact to focus on the fun elements of play while still developing the skills for success on the field. At Michael & Son Sportsplex at Dulles, we boast a range of leagues and programs for children of varying ages and abilities. Playing pigskin has never been so fun!
This program is designed to introduce flag football to beginner and intermediate players. Participants are instructed on the basics of throwing, catching, carrying and defense. The goal is to develop players through various drills and games. Each week new games and drills focus on developing teamwork, skills, and coordination through exercise.
Coach Sam has been coaching here at the Sportsplex for 6 years! Prior to launching his coaching career he was a 4 year varsity player in high school for both soccer and football. After graduating he had an opportunity to continue playing at a collegiate level but unfortunately an injury cut his chances short. He went on to graduate from James Madison university with a degree in psychology and now loves spreading his sports knowledge with the youth. Not only will coach sam offer the best opportunity for your kids to learn more skills, he will also teach your kids many life lessons about teamwork and other important skills.
Coach Marquis started coaching and playing flag football in 1993 as a college work study/intramural activity. He competed at the state level in North Carolina, Virginia, & Ohio. He also competed several times as a State Champion in the United States Flag Football League. Marquis played quarterback, wide receiver, and defensive back. He started officiating flag football in 1997 with experience in 5-man, 7-man, 8-man, and 9-man leagues.
