Narberth Athletic Association NFL Flag Football teams ‘pop’ on Saturday mornings – Mainline Media News

Narberth >> The Meet the Coaches sessions, team bags pick-up, rules updates, and draft night, all preludes to game day, predicted a smooth start to the 17th year of Narberth Athletic Association Co-Ed Youth Flag Football.

Add three more letters – NFL. Those three letters signify the official flag football league of the National Football League and the largest flag football organization in the U.S.

To say that Welsh Valley Middle School fields and open spaces “pop” on Saturdays is an understatement.

Nearly 420 players participate between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., with coaches, parents, guardians, grandparents, siblings, and a rare pooch in tow.

Local high school students, assisted by adult supervisors, referee the running clock during each half of 20 minutes.

Players recognizable by NFL team jerseys match up on eight designated fields throughout the 5-hours per Saturday league.

NFL FLAG is a fun and accessible non-contact program available for girls and boys ages 5-17.

With 1,600 locally operated leagues and over 500,000 youth athletes, NFL FLAG is the largest, most recognized flag football organization in the U.S.—and the only one where players wear official NFL gear.
