"As a Former Collegiate and NFL Football player, I've seen first-hand the damage of banging your head day after day. With that being said, I do love the game, and so does my 9-year-old son!

To protect my son's young brain from exposure to head trauma, and for him to be able to play the sport he loves so much, I started Phenom Flag Football. 

I personally do not believe it is necessary to play tackle football at a young age. Through flag football, the kids can learn and understand the rules and strategies of football safely. With that training, if they choose, they are still prepared to play football on a contact level when they are older."
Former NFL Player
Founder Phenom Flag Football 
The benefits of high-level coaching cannot be overlooked when discussing Phenom Flag Football.
By competing in Phenom, players are exposed to a fast pace and well-organized training structure  designed by coaches with experience at the high school, college and professional levels.

Unlike most flag football leagues, we have structured our game rules  as close as possible to tackle football. We believe in preparing the youth to understand the game of football and the rules in a safe environment without having to play tackle football at such a young age.
