During the summer of 2011, the Pittsburgh Flag Football League embarked on the mission of expanding the league from an adult only platform to include a youth league. While understanding that the format and structure of play would need to be different then that of the adult league, we decided to engage in partnership to bring the NFL Flag program to Pittsburgh.
Having the ability to offer the NFL Flag program has allowed the youth league to grow exponentially in just a few short years. This growth can not only be attributed to providing a fun, safe and inclusive environment, but also providing resources to both parents and coaches alike through the NFL. Our age demographic has consistently covered children ages 7 yrs. to 13 yrs. of age and we are actively seeking expansion into the teenage market.
