A FUN GAME of RUN and CATCH. With which the purpose is for one team (OFFENSE) to cover a full field distance and cross the Football at the End zone at opposite end of the field, from which the 1 st play was initiated. It is a derivative of the popular game of American Full Contact Football popularized by the National Football League (NFL). Flag Football takes away the contact aspect by implementing the use of FLAG BELTS, that when pulled would signify a Tackle or play stoppage.

Those done with the course exit the Flag Football Course and continue with the race issued with their corresponding Bands signifying whether or not a participant incurred a penalty during the course
IMPORTANT NOTE: In case a ball is uncaught/dropped, the participant will need to pick up the ball then proceed with the course. Although, he/she will automatically be marked as having a BALL DROP PENALTY In case any one (1) of the participants two Flags are pulled, he/she will need to ask for the Flags from the defender, re-attach them and continue thru the course. The participant would then be marked as having a FLAG PULL PENALTY
BALL DROP = 1 PENALTY = 1 BAND FLAG PULLED = 1 PENALTY = 1 BAND BALL DROP&FLAG PULL = 2 PENALTIES = 2 BANDS COMPLETE = NO PENALTIES = 3 BANDS DISCONTINUED = ZERO BAND PENALTIES
