The new Northwest Flag Football League, for third-through sixth-graders — like similar leagues around the suburbs — will fill a void for younger kids who aren’t ready for tackle football,...
Welcome to the Northwest Flag Football League
Head Coach and former NFL player Jim Schwantz and Director Matt May have teamed up to offer NWFFL, the premier football development camp for Boys grades 3-6 in Chicago’s Northwest suburbs. NWFFL believes that flag football is the 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 upon entering the 7th grade.
NWFFL understands the importance of developing better football players and athletes, and as result, 25% of all practices are committed to plyometrics with a professional trainer. In addition, equal playing time is guaranteed at all positions for every practice and regular season game!
The first NWFFL season is coming in the Summer of 2013, but check back soon for more exciting information about this new program!
