  2. Games are on Sundays with exceptions for Super Bowl Sunday (sites vary based on field availability, please check the season schedule listed below).
  3. All practices and games are on the SAME DAY - parents need only allocate a 2-hour window of availability each week for their child's involvement in the program. Practice hours take place immediately prior to a participant's scheduled game time.
  4. Per Next Level Flag Football rules, equal playing time is governed on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball and shall be administered by the Student Head Coach Mentor and Parent Volunteer(s) Coaches.
  5. Each Next Level game is played as 5 versus 5 in a non-contact environment. Field length is 40-yard long - up to 4 games operate simultaneously on the same regulation football field.
  6. All teams are assigned a Student-Athlete as a Head Coach/Mentor. Parent volunteers are to ASSIST our Student Athletes and ENABLE them in their role as the head coach of their respective team(s).

Additional Information: Next Level Flag Football Program

The Next Level Winter Flag Football program seeks to foster an environment to teach and instruct the principles and techniques of flag football in a safe environment. We encourage all prospective participants to enter at their comfort level and grow their individual skills at their own pace throughout the season. Both male and female participants are welcome! All teams will have student-athlete assigned as the Head Coach of their team. An adult volunteer will support the student as an assistant coach within the program.

For our parents, we seek to keep your weekends free of tangled schedules - team practice times will occur on the same day as your games, always one hour prior to game time. Practices scheduled outside of this time period (during any day other than game-day) are at the discretion of both the parents and the coaches yet are outside of the Next Level structure and not supported by Next Level.

  • No prior flag football experience is required to participant in the Next Level Flag Football Program.
  • All flag football equipment will be provided.
  • It is suggested that all players wear cleats or athletic shoes.
  • Uniforms are included in the league registration fees, inclusive of home delivery of your uniform (for all registrations received before Dec. 15th).
  • Our program is community-based - teams are formalized by schoolmates, buddy lists and friends where possible.
  • All teams will be assigned a Student Mentor Coach from a represented high school or college.

We strive to strike an ideal balance between healthy competition and player/character development. Next Level is always a 'one trophy' league as we believe that recognition for participation is not an effectively means of helping develop young athletes. In fact, we believe that many of life's best lessons are learned through struggle, achievement, success and of course disappointment. We strive to foster competition yet to also find balance in the ever-changing world of youth sports.
