The cost for the season is $180 per player. An MYFFL t-shirt and mouth guard (may keep these) will be provided to each youth, as well as flag belts for use on field. Youth should have a good pair of sporting shoes suitable for running and maneuvering on grass, such as cleated shoes. Also, during the season weather may vary, so please dress accordingly in layers for the weather of the day. Recommended sports
wear includes shorts/sweatpants, long socks, and gloves if desired.

Each participant is taken at the skill level
and ability where they currently play, and
are challenged to do their personal best.
Each youth should leave their youth sport experience feeling good about themselves,
having a healthy attitude towards sports, especially football.
With flag football, the tools and skills that we teach will allow each youth to grow
at their own level personally, while developing a strong sense of team work, determination
and good sportsmanship - all valuable in their lives both on the field and off of the field.
MYFFL will focus on the fundamentals of the game without the contact, using a Progression Model ensuring that every athlete learns age appropriate football drills and skills in a fun and energetic environment.
Coaching staff includes adults with many years of experience in the areas of coaching organized youth sports at elementary, junior varsity (JV) and varsity levels, as well as organized youth activities and educational techniques.
MYFFL was started out of a recognized need for a positive, non-competitive, non-contact, educational and fun football experience.
MARIN YOUTH FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Flag football offers all of the fun of football with out the risk of injury. Like regular football, teams run or pass the ball down field in order to score a touchdown.
However, instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players pull the flag from the ball carrier's
waist in order to end the play.
A unique facet of our program is that student athletes from local high schools will be an important part of the experience. Participation by these athletes, all experienced and active in the sport of football, will allow the youth to connect with their peer mentors in a unique peer coaching environment, increasing the amount of personal "one on one" coaching time for the youth, and within a "non stressful" environment.
Parents are always welcome to attend the practices and games, but we do ask that the coaching staff
be allowed to coach the youth. Your support is best shown by your presence !
One day, one practice, one game, but ALL FUN !
Like you, we value your weekend time and have kept our sessions long enough to get things done and yet
short enough for the youth and parents to enjoy. Please be sure that your child is on the field and ready
at the time the practice is scheduled to begin - we want them to get the most of their time with us !
Our goal is to provide a flag football experience which is positive, safe, educational and fun.
Through professional instruction, the youth are allowed to develop the necessary and fundamental
skills of football. They shall learn techniques and rules of the sport, and have ample practice.
We shall model, encourage and support the benefits of any organized sport, such as:
personal dedication; determination; team work; sportsmanship and sport ethics; focus;
utilizing maximum effort; developing a mental alertness; and of course, fun !
