Welcome to the Northwest Flag Football League

NWFFL is the premier football development camp for K-8th grade boys in Chicago’s Northwest suburbs. Flag football is best place to learn the game before you put the pads on. Learn strategy, special teams, and positions while building a strong foundation in the fundamentals of the game. Our goal is to have every player — regardless of size, talent, athleticism, or ability — learn the proper fundamentals of football and improve their athleticism so they are prepared to participate safely in tackle football.

Three Divisions

Players are divided into three divisions based on age and ability to ensure the best personal instruction: High School Division (K-2), College Division (3-5), and Pro Division (6-8)

The NWFFL Difference

Our philosophy is not to pigeon hole players. We believe in equal playing time and giving kids the opportunity to play every position regardless of size or ability. Your child will have fun while learning proper fundamentals from professional coaches. After Week 3, 45 minutes of each practice is committed to interleague games, so players get true game experience.

Professional Coaching

All NWFFL coaches have years of experience at the college or high school level. Our coaches are not volunteers. They are paid coaches that instruct your son in the proper fundamentals of football.

Multi-Sport Athletes

NWFFL believes in promoting multi-sport athletes. As a result, there is NO weekend commitment. All practices and games are held at Harper Community College in Palatine.
