Simple Short Successful Flag Football Passes

By FirstDown PlayBook on May 5, 2021

One of the most common things we hear from youth flag football coaches is that there just isn’t that much their players can do at this young age. We always try to encourage the coaches to embrace this instead of fighting it.

The first way to embrace it is to keep your plays simple. If you have comebacks as part of your passing game, you are going to struggle. You are looking for five yard stop routes, slants and hitches.

Today’s short Flag Football Chalk Talk video shows you how you can get a lot of milage out of just one play. We have seen flag football coaches who are working with 7-8-9 year olds run one pass play only in a game.

The key is to teach every player all of the positions so that they all get to experience and execute the different skills. After your team masters this, just flip the play and run it the other way!

Remember, you and THEY are going to have more fun if they know what they are doing and can actually do what you are asking!
