Flag Football With Koa Sports

“Crabcakes and football. That’s what Maryland does!”

This quote from the movie Wedding Crashers has become very commonly used in the area, and while Koa may not be able to do crabcakes that well, we DO know how to do football!

The focus of our league is two-fold: GET BETTER and HAVE FUN. As opposed to the hyper-competitive sports culture that’s crept onto so many playing fields, we view flag football as an equal-opportunity sports experience for any child who wants to play. This means shared playing time and an opportunity to play a number of different positions. The goal of this league isn’t to groom players for the NFL — this is a chance for kids from the neighborhood to come together and have a good time playing a great sport.

At Koa Sports, we hold two flag football leagues in Rockville, MD & Olney, MD for two seasons, Spring & Fall! Our professional coaches provide exceptional training for players of all ages and experience levels. If you’re searching for an organized and fun flag football league in Rockville, MD or Olney, MD, you’ve come to the right place!

The Rockville, MD league includes six regular season games + 1 playoff weekend. The Olney, MD league includes three regular season games + 1 playoff weekend. Practices are scheduled before games, so you don’t have to worry about fitting in mid-week practices after school. We offer several age divisions, ranging from kindergarten to high school teams. Don’t hesitate to contact us at any time for updated information about upcoming Rockville, MD & Olney, MD flag football league details.

Olney Flag Football

Olney Flag Football has a new player coming its way in Fall 2017: Koa Sports League! This will be Koa’s first flag football season in Olney, but nowhere near our first flag football season. Koa Flag Football has operated out of the Bethesda area for more than 10 seasons, and it’s time to bring the fun to Olney!

Koa’s Flag Football program stands out from a preparation standpoint. All of the background work is done by full-time staff members, including team assignments, scheduling, uniforms, coaching, etc. Olney Flag Football with Koa will mean competing in real jerseys, with real referees, with teams coached by real, trained, professional coaches.

Frequently Asked Questions:

I have a big group of players who'd like to play, can they all be on the same team?

Absolutely. During the registration process, either simply list the players’ names in the “teammate requests” or “comments/notes” box or create a creative team-name and have all the players list that. We’ll make sure they all end up together. However, we do try to limit the number of players on one team to 10.

My child is alone! Can you find him a team?

Done deal. We have a huge number of “free-agents” each year and we’re more than happy to place them on a team with other kids their age. It’s a really inclusive environment and your child will fit in easily.

Can I register for a parent coached team if I don't want to be the parent coach?

Yes, but we can’t guarantee a spot on that roster. We’re usually able to fill out parent coached teams and find a volunteer but that’s not always the case. In the event there aren’t enough players (or no parent volunteers), we’ll transfer you to a Koa-Coached team and ask you to pay the difference.

So no mid-week practices?

No. Saturday or Sunday (depending on your choice) is the only day of football and you’ll both practice and play in that time window

What if it rains?

We rent fields from Montgomery County to play our games. If they close fields due to inclement weather, we will have to postpone games. Each season will have one make-up week at the end, if necessary.

Can I yell and scream and complain about the refs and fight with other parents?

NO. We’re absolutely committed to making flag football a positive environment for everyone to enjoy. This is NOT a league for parents to live through their children or take away from the kids’ experience.

What are the nitty-gritty on the rules?
Can I still register after registration closes?

Counter-intuitively, yes. We set a registration date so we can make our operational plan for the season. You can still sign up after the registration deadline, but you will be charged a late registration fee to cover the administrative costs of entering the player individually.

What if I have to cancel my registration down the road?

If you cancel your registration after the registration close date and find someone to take your spot, we’ll refund you 80% of the program cost in cash. If you cancel your registration after the registration close date and fail to find someone to take your spot, we’ll credit your Koa account with 80% of the cost.

Once the season is started, we only issue refunds under extremely extenuating circumstances
