PP FLEX FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Flex Football bridges the gap between flag and tackle football. Inspired by the NFL’s approach to practice, Flex Football provides a low impact, up-tempo, assignment and acumen focused development platform. Based on these principles, Flex Football is the ideal experience to develop true football fundamentals. The value lies in the development of advanced football skills while keeping the head out of the game.
The Perfect Performance Flex Football League(“PPFFL”) is going to blend the best elements of football with detailed skill and acumen development. We are going to teach the game in practice periods and then compete in game periods. The league will be directed by the professional football coaching staff at Perfect Performance which includes six year NFL veteran Leonard Stephens and Saskatchewan Rough Riders (CFL) scout Rashad Rich.
Flex Football is an extension of 7v7 to 9v9 to include OL and DL. The offense will have 5 eligible receivers, 1 quarterback and 3 offensive linemen. The defense will have 7 skill defenders and 2 defensive linemen. The game will consist of traditional rules and point values. Depending on the age of the players, one football field can be divided to 2-4 flex football fields.
Flex Football will allow your football athlete to focus on position specific skill development in a competitive, low impact environment. Players will learn run/pass blocking techniques, route running, defeating blocks, press coverage techniques, passing and catching with a helmet and shoulder pads.
