What to Expect

Flag football is a version of football where the defensive team “tackles” a player by pulling a flag from their belt, rather than tackling the player to the ground. Once the player with the football has his or her flag pulled, the play is marked dead. Traditional football rules are simplified for the purpose of flag football to reflect the smaller number of players on a team. Otherwise, the goal of the game is the same: score touchdowns by advancing the ball up the field by throwing or running the ball, and crossing over the end zone line. The flag football tournament at Rocky Top Sports World will be played on a 5 week schedule, with the 6th week consisting of a playoff style bracket to determine the champion. All of the League Division Champions will receive an award package.

Play Zones for Children
