LLBFL is proud to introduce... Spring Ultimate Flag!!
Started by Ashburn Youth Football League, Ultimate flag is the first and only flag format in Northern Virginia that incorporates the use of helmets and shoulder pads. Like the pros’ spring training, players expand their football skills without fear of major injury as often seen in head on collisions in an unprotected flag environment. Ultimate Flag is the most advanced flag football experience, spring league in Northern Virginia. The Ultimate Flag Football format allows us to incorporate many traditional football fundamentals and techniques WITHOUT tackling. Players experience the use of football equipment with size-selected helmets and shoulder pads. The Ultimate Flag program is a great experience for players who will transition to explore tackle football. *NEW THIS YEAR: Enhanced competition through INTER-LEAGUE game play within all of LYFA. **
In Ultimate Flag, there are NO weight restrictions. All players, regardless of weight, can carry the ball. Also, LLBFL players who register for Ultimate Flag will be preserved to their fall season team. (e.g. A 6th grader on the Lions, would play with other Lions athletes in the Spring.) For the Spring Ultimate Flag season there will be NO discount cards to sell, hence the slightly higher price for registration compared to the fall.
