The advantages of stretching the football field sideline to sideline are not exclusive to tackle football. In fact it may be more important in flag football when you stop and think about it.

Some flag football leagues do not even allow blocking so the need to create space is even more essential. Today’s Flag Football Chalk Talk focuses on a way to stretch the defense even if you plan on running a conventional run play.

One of the best things about the jet sweep flag football play you are about to learn about is it is very flexible for all ages. This play can be as simple or as multiple as you want it to be.

If you are coaching the young players you should pre-determine where the ball is going. If you are dealing with a more advance team you can give your quarterback options depending on how the defense plays.

The most important thing to remember is that a play like this needs to be run at full speed. Regardless of if you pre-determine where the ball is going or not, your advantage comes from making the defense have to defend multiple options!
