CHIEFS NFL FLAG - Frequently Asked Questions

We know the world of flag football can be a confusing one. We have put together a list of commonly asked questions that we hope you find helpful as you continue your journey with us this season. 

Q: Who Can Play?

A: Most Chiefs NFL Flag locations are open to Boys and Girls, 4 years of age to 14. Some of our locations allow for as young as 3 years old and as old as 18!  Participants from any city can register for any of our programs.  

Q: How are Individual Players Placed on Teams?
A: This is a league designed to keep schoolmates and friends playing together.  Therefore, individuals are placed on teams determined by school, a buddy request, grade and age factors.  Our goal is for each elementary and middle school to have their own flag football teams. Teams are formed using a combination of the following criteria (listed in no specific order):
-School affiliation
-Current Grade/Age
-A Buddy Request (We try to accommodate requests however, refunds are not provided due to an unfulfilled request)
-Coach Request

Most teams will have 8-10 players.  If there are more than 12 players registered in the same grade/age division at the same school, those players will be divided into multiple "School" teams and then the remaining spots could be filled with players from other schools.  

Q: What are the Age Divisions and Age cutoffs? 
A: January 1st is the age cutoff.

Q: What is Lombardi, Shula and Madden Division mean?
A: For example using the Age Cutoff of January 1 2024 the following would be the division breakdowns. 
LOMBARDI - Birthyear 2017 or younger 
SHULA - Birthyear 2015 or younger 
MADDEN - Birthyear 2007 or younger

Q: If my child and his/her classmates do not have enough players to form a team? 
 No worries! We will always try to keep classmates together but if needed we will combine players from other schools to form your team for the season.     

Q: I didn't place buddy/coach request, is it too late to update this information?

Q: Can I update my registration information once I submit my registration form?

Common corrections include but are not limited to:

Q: How are the divisions determined?
All divisions are determined by final registration numbers. Divisions will be paired with another age group either above or below your players age group, if not enough players in the age division to support individual divisions.  

Q: How many teams can one school have?
A: It depends.  We will not turn any players away.  As many teams that can be formed from each school by grade/age division will be accepted. Everyone who wants to play is welcome.
