Kentlands Flag Football League

Spring 2017

Our Kentlands Flag Football League is brand new for Spring 2017. While we may be a new face in the neighborhood, we’re no strangers to the flag football field.  This new location means more options for area athletes to get involved with flag football–the safest way to play America’s game.  We’re hoping to bring all of the spinning, flag-pulling, touchdown-dancing FUN to our Kentlands Flag Football League.

Koa Flag Football is the league where everybody knows your name–and the Kentlands area league will be no exception. Our full-time staff members are here to take care of all the hard work (think scheduling, uniform ordering, coach assignments, etc.) Where the coaches are here to help you get better on and off the field. It’s competing in real jerseys, with real referees, with teams coached by real, trained, professional coaches.

We may be new to the Kentlands neighborhood, but we’re no stranger to flag football. Thousands of players have worn the Koa K on their jerseys while playing flag football, and we’ve proudly served over 5,000 Koa athletes across our sport and camp offerings.

As far as flag football goes, we’re all about getting moving and having fun. We’re a nation of spin-moving, touchdown celebrating, intercepting football-crazies.

Koa was built on the idea that sports are important in the lives of young boys and girls. From the skills it develops to the lessons it teaches to the relationships formed along the way. Come join us and experience the Koa-difference for yourself.

Our football program has leagues in both the Spring and Fall, with the perfect league for everyone’s developmental dreams.
