DSYSA Football and Cheer

Flag Football


The Flag Football program will be open to boys and girls from Pre-K through 6th grade. The Flag Football program will be administered by DSYSA and game-day operations will be run by Neighborhood Sports. Teams will all wear NFL branded team reversible jerseys.

DSYSA Football partners with Neighborhood Sports to make the season a success! Our flag program provides young players a fun and exciting opportunity to engage in non-contact, continuous action while learning lessons in teamwork. Players develop skills that will help them succeed on and off the field. 

The game is 5v5 flag football and teaches the basic skills of football running, passing, receiving and defending. Games involve non-contact rules that eliminate all forms of blocking and tackling. The program is played on a 50-yard playing field where participants may run or pass the ball. Teams start at their 5-yard line and have three downs to move the ball past midfield. Once a team has crossed midfield they receive a new set of three downs to score. Our league uses a modified version of the NFL Flag rules that has been adapted over several seasons of collaboration with Neighborhood Sports.

As you register, please keep in mind DSYSA Football is a volunteer-run organization that relies heavily on parent coaches. If you are interested, or maybe have questions regarding coaching, please reach out and we can help answer any questions you may have. Know that you are not alone, and we are here to help your season be a success! [email protected]


The divisions will be broken into Pre-K/Kinder, 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, and 5th/6th grades. Grades are based on the school year beginning in the Fall of 2023. Each player will register individually; however, they may request a coach or teammate through the registration process.  Coaching requests are not guaranteed, but they will be honored as best we can.  Players are encouraged to play with previous coaches and/or teammates to help build strong bonds and lasting memories.  Be sure to select that you will volunteer as a coach or assistant if you are interested.  Note that you may not request players as a coach.  Players' requests are granted on a first come first serve basis until teams are full.

Due to the growing size of this program, it is likely that the 1st/2nd Grade and 3rd/4th Grade divisions will be broken into single grade divisions.  This will help to reduce the size of the divisions and balance out the skill level of the teams.  A player in either 1st or 3rd grade may request a coach and/or teammate in the 2nd or 4th Grade respectively and play "up" in that division; however, players may not play "down" a grade level if these divisions become split.
