Flag Football With Koa Sports

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 have two Flag Football 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 Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Wheaton, Kensington, Potomac, Glen Echo, Takoma Park, and the District of Columbia., you’ve come to the right place!

The league is six weeks long. 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. Please reach out if you want to connect!

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 request" box. 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.

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

No. Please come with a preformed team of 10 if you want to play on a parent coached team.

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 the fields are closed due to inclement weather, we will postpone games. If necessary, each season will have double headers or extend the season by a weekend.

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?

It depends if any teams are still looking for a player.

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

If you cancel your registration before the registration close date, we’ll refund you 100% of the program cost. If you cancel your registration after the registration close date and find someone to take your spot, we’ll refund you 80% of the cost. 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.
