What is Blue Devils NFL Flag?
Davis Blue Devils flag football was created for players to learn / practice football skills and better understanding the fundamentals of the game. Boys and girls 6 - 14 of all sizes in our community will play in an organized, non-contact football league wearing official gear of the NFL. Improve your game, stay active, make new friends and have fun! The game is designed to teach and enhance the skills of both offensive and defensive players. Football is fun and creates independent thinkers that work together for a common goal, your TEAM.
How many players are on a team?
With only 5 players on the field, players are highly engaged and gives every player a chance to be an impact player. Depending on your age, usually 7- 10 players are on each team. Obviously, team size will depend on the number of players and coaches available.
What are the age levels / Divisions? We offer 4 divisions in 2020:
7U: Current 1 and 2nd graders (If not enough players to make teams: Parents will have an option to 1. play 9u , 2. We may just do a clinic / scrimmages every sunday or 3. be given a refund)

Can I register and request to be on a certain players / coaches team?
