What is Flex Football?

Flex football is a great starting place for kids under 6. Unlike flag, flex allows players to experience football with a hands first approach and a progressive two-hand touch model to closely simulate tackle. Flex has 9 on 9 play that develops a players run game, pass rush, and resembles tackle football. The best part, once the player is ready, flex football will have instilled the necessary skills and fundamentals that will allow for a seamless switch to tackle football with the Almaden Mustangs.
