SPRING FLAG FOOTBALL
This is one of the fastest growing games in Canada and the Vancouver Warriors have been a leader since the first season of play in BC. 5 on 5 Flag Football is a non-contact sport that runs in the Lower Mainland during April, May & early June. Each
team comprises of around 8-12 players and games are played over five weekend jamborees with each jamboree consisting of multiple games during the day.
U10 – 2009, 2010
U12 – 2007, 2008
U14 – 2005, 2006
U16 – 2003, 2004
U19 – 2000, 2001, 2002
WHO CAN PLAY?
Anyone can play. The program is designed to develop core skills for Running, Passing, Catching, and Footwork. All players will benefit from the additional field time and ball touches but faster athletes will excel in this fast paced open field atmosphere.
If you are unsure, don’t be. Flag football is tons of fun! We encourage all potential players to join us for a practice and try it out!!

The season consists of five weekend (either a Saturday or Sunday) sets of games at various parks starting at the end of April and running through May (except the Victoria Day long weekend).
