Fundamentally Focused, Age Appropriate Development

Flag Football

Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade

We want football to become our player's favorite sport at this age! Players begin learning football skills like handoffs, catching, throwing, plays, and communication skills teamwork, leadership and more.

We are a proud NFL Flag Football league and the best flag experience in Des Moines!

Padded Flag

3rd Grade

In 3rd Grade, players have grown faster and stronger. They learn fundamentals more quickly & they compete with greater confidence.

We introduce helmets and shoulder pads at this level for their own protection and that of their teammates and opponents. They are introduced to the fundamentals of USA Football's Heads-Up Blocking and flag pulling techniques. 

Modified Tackle

4th - 7th Grade

Waukee follows modified rules to focus on fundamentals and simplify the game for players and coaches. Special Teams, formations, blitzing and more are limited as players learn the basics of football.

Waukee Youth Football does not mirror "High School rules" until 7th grade, in preparation for 8th grade football through Waukee School District.
