Flag Football Tips for Novice Players
When you’re new to the game of flag football, you’ll feel a step ahead of things when you follow some key tips:
Strategy is king. Flag football is all about strategy, so instead of just running toward the ball, work with your team members to establish a specific plan for wearing down the other team’s defense and making plays.
Try new techniques. Especially when you’re new to the game and season, have fun trying new ideas and seeing what works. Experiment with plays to see what is most successful, and keep learning from the process.
Practice throws. One crucial skill in flag football is the spiral throw. Practice this throw by holding the ball at the back, keeping your elbow near your body and the ball by your ear, and then throwing toward a target.
Learn how to pull the flag. Remember the goal of the game is to pull the flag, and keep that as a priority in your plays.
