Frequently Asked Questions

CHIEFS FLAG FAQ

We know the world of flag football can be a confusing one. We have put together a list of commonly asked questions that we hope you find helpful as you continue your journey with us this season. 

Q: Who Can Play?

A: This program is open to Boys and Girls, 4 years of age (as of the registration deadline date) - 8th grade.  Participants from any city can register for any of our programs.  

Q: How are Individual Players Placed on Teams?
A: This is a league designed to keep schoolmates and friends playing together.  Therefore, individuals are placed on teams determined by school, a buddy request, grade and age factors.  Our goal is for each elementary and middle school to have their own flag football teams. Teams are formed using a combination of the following criteria (listed in no specific order):

School affiliation
Current Grade/Age
A Buddy Request (We try to accommodate requests however, refunds are not provided due to an unfulfilled request)

Most teams will have 8-10 players.  If there are more than 12 players registered in the same grade/age division at the same school, those players will be divided into multiple "School" teams and then the remaining spots could be filled with players from other schools.  

Q: If my child and his/her classmates do not have enough players to form a team? 
A: No worries! We will always try to keep classmates together but if needed we will combine players from other schools to form your team for the season.     

Q: How many teams can one school have?
A: It depends.  We will not turn any players away.  As many teams that can be formed from each school by grade/age division will be accepted. Everyone who wants to play is welcome.  

Q: How many players are on a team?
A: Most teams have 8-10 players.  However, we do reserve the right to stretch these guidelines if the league deems necessary.  

Q: Does the league supply uniforms?
A: Every Flag Football player in our program receives an NFL reversible team jersey and a flag belt to keep with your registration.  

Q: Who are the coaches?
A: Parent volunteers. Chiefs Flag does not provide coaches. Once teams are assembled, parents will be recruited to coach their team.  No experience is necessary.

Q: Who are the Officials and are they Qualified?
A:All of our referees undergo NFL Flag official training, Chiefs Flag Training, and certificate programs through The Kansas City Chiefs. We place a large amount of resources on hiring training and keeping qualified and quality referees with a 3-day a week schedule to provide a great part time job for the right person. 

Q: How much playing time can my child expect?
A: All of our programs promote participation, fun, and fundamentals. Coaches are required to fairly allocate playing time equally among all players on the team. We will do our best to assure all players receive equal playing time.

Q: What do I get for my Registration Fee?
A: A five or six week season including practices, use of well groomed fields, certified officials, NFL FLAG reversible team jersey, flag belt and flags, interactive website, organized administration, and a lot of FUN for you and your child!

Q: Are there playoffs?
A:  The top 4 teams in each Madden division will participate in playoffs the last week of the season.  The top 2 teams will then play an additional game the same day for the Championship. 

Q: What types of awards are given?
A: 1st place only receives Championship ring!

Q: Do all flag football players need mouth pieces?
A: It is absolutely mandatory that all players are wearing a mouth piece before stepping on the field.

Q: How do I register?
