Flag Football Program


NEYSA will again participate in the YCJFA Youth Flag Football Program with teams being assigned and commencing practices in March and games commencing in April. Games will be played 5-on-5 and will last approximately 1 hour (2-20 minute halves with halftime and limited clock stoppage). We expect practices to be 2 weeknights per week for an hour each practice, with games on Saturdays or Sundays. Final practice schedules will be distributed once teams have been assigned, and game schedules will come out from the league in late March.

Flag Football FAQ's

My child plays another spring sport but is interested in flag football, can they do both?

Of course! We encourage players to participate in as many sports as possible. The Spring Flag Football program is a much less significant time commitment that tackle football, with practices 2x per week for approximately 1 hour and 1 game per weekend. As a result, it is very possible to participate in flag football while also playing baseball, basketball, soccer or lacrosse whose primary seasons are in the spring.  

My child has never played football before, is this program right for them?

Absolutely! Flag football is a great introduction to football and our program is open for boys and girls of all skill and development levels.    

My child lives outside of the North Eastern York School District, may they still participate in your program?

Our league does have jurisdictional rules to maximize opportunities for players to participate with their friends and classmates. We encourage children from nearby school districts that do not participate in our league (but for whom NE is the closest program) to sign up and play with us. Currently this would include: Central SD, Red Lion SD. Players from other school districts are also welcome and encouraged to come out and play with us, but please reach out to [email protected] directly before registering to ensure that we’re the most convenient program for you to sign up with.

How long is the season?

Our regular season is 6-8 games starting April 1, with no games being played on Easter and Memorial Day weekends. After the regular season ends, there will be two weekends of Playoffs and Championships (the first two weekends in June). 

What equipment is needed?

Flag football is non-contact so equipment is minimal. Jerseys and shorts along with flags are provided as part of your registration costs so the only equipment needed is a pair of cleats and a great attitude! 

Where will practices and games be located?

Practices and all home games will be located on the lower field behind the Northeastern Middle School. Teams will also have some away games played at other participating programs in York County. Game schedules will be released after practices start and once each program has a final number of teams participating at each level.  

Will Games be Played in Inclement Weather?

Safety of our players and families are our #1 priority.  Games will continue in light snow or rain provided that the field is still available. Games will be cancelled during heavy rain, or thunderstorms.  Game cancellations will be communicated thru your team coaches.

Will Refunds Be Offered for this Program?

All refund requests must be made in writing to [email protected]  All refunds requests will be reviewed and approved by the NEYSA board.  Any requests made after March 3, 2023 will not be honored.

What does my registration cost cover?

Registration fees cover the individual players uniform (approximately $60 per player) as well as the majority of the program costs for the season. Overall program costs include things like:

  • Player Jerseys:$6,000 - $8,000
