2023 Flag Football Info

2023 Flag Football Info

Our Patriots Flag Football season runs from late July/early August until late September/early October. We follow a 5 on 5 format that emphasizes the basics of football and ensures plenty of participation for all members on the team. We currently take players between the ages of 5-7 years old with July 31st being the cut-off date.

Practices and Games

The first two weeks of the season we have 2 practices per week. Once games start, practices are 1 day a week, usually on Thursday, from 5:30-7:00 pm.  Though we strive to make the practice schedule uniform throughout the year, the day may be subject to change depending on availability of practice fields and coaches’ schedules. Games are held on Saturday or Sunday mornings depending on field availability and potential scheduling conflicts with our tackle football games. This allows parents with kids in tackle and flag, coaches who coach teams at both levels, and flag players and their families who simply want to come see our Patriot’s tackle games to do so.

All practices and games are held at Manhattan Jr. with the exception of our playoffs/Super Bowl. This is our one day, end of the season tournament that is held at Lincoln Way West.  The players really enjoy this day of competition and the opportunity for all teams to play on the local high school field, with the final game played under the lights.

The exact schedule for our flag season will be out in late June/early July depending on how many participants sign up and how many teams we can field.


The fees are $160.00 for the season and includes a personalized jersey the players can keep.  If you have any questions they can be emailed to flag@manhattanpatriots.com
