WELCOME TO N.A.X. FLAG FOOTBALL

Youth flag football is a competitive yet attractive sport that is growing in popularity everyday, but has a reputation for being disorganized, focused solely on winning, and generally, frustrating. At NewAge Athletix football, we strive to provide a more professional experience for parents, players and coaches—one focused on organized communication, mutual respect, and personal growth—on and off the field.

5th-8th Grade Division Rules & Goals 

  • 30 second play clock

  • 7 second Qb clock

  • NO Coach allowed on the field

​In this division we make the transition into an every-down is a pass play or a scaled down version of HS 7v7 pass game. We want the players to start working on their skills as a QB, WR, and DB that they have learned from their coach and apply it in a fun, competitive format.

Basic Rules

  • Coin flip determines choice of possession or direction (winning team can elect to defer to the 2nd half)

  • The clock will only stop for time-outs and injuries unless it is the last minute of the game.(it does not stop for incomplete passes, out of bounds, change of possession)

  • LAST 1 MINUTE OF THE GAME

    1. The clock will  stop in the final 2 minutes of the game on these actions:

      • Incompletions

      • Out of Bounds 

      • QB Sack and kneel downs

      • Change of Possession 

      • Penalties. If it’s an offensive penalty the clock will start on the official unless dead ball foul.

      • Touchdowns

  • TWO 30-second timeouts per half

  • If a timeout is called after a touchdown, the clock will not start until the play after the conversion attempt

  • Teams switch sides at halftime.

  • If there is a bad snap, the ball is dead and placed at the LOS. There is NO loss of yardage.

  • Center cannot take a handoff from the QB.

  • Ball is placed where a flag pulled, not where the ball is when the flag is pulled.

  • A receiver must have one foot in bounds when making a reception.

  • Laterals are allowed but if the ball hits the ground, the ball is spotted at that yard mark.

  • Absolutely no tackling or blocking (stationary pick is allowed but player cannot move)

  • Only one player can be in motion at the same time.

  • 3 Players must be on the Line of Scrimmage or Illegal Formation; The Center counts as 1 player on the LOS.

  • Games cannot end on a defensive penalty.

Special Alert Rules

  • Defensive players can cross the line of scrimmage when a handoff, fake handoff or backward pass has occurred. 

  • Interceptions can be returned for a TD, if intercepting teams flag is pulled before the end zone, then possession will begin where the defender is flagged.
     

  • MERCY RULE
    If a team is up by 30 or more they only have 2 downs to get a first down and 2 downs to score until that point difference is trimmed below 30 pts. Then regular game rules apply.

    The team that is behind by 30 or more points will start their offensive possession at the +10 yard line and get 4 downs to score. If the point difference is trimmed below 30 pts, then regular game rules apply
