The Plex Youth Developmental Football League (DFL) Skills Academy is a recreational football program designed with age appropriate divisions for players of all skill ages 6-14. The program offers an introduction to the game of flag football; an environment to learn skills tailored to a player’s specific age group, and provides a platform to learn the fundamentals of the game. The DFL Skills academy also fosters player self confidence, develops high self esteem, and builds strong character in all our participants.

Players participate in the Indoor Flag league by registering individually online or in person at The Plex. Players can request up to 4 friends to play with on the same team, though it is not guaranteed. All players will attend an evaluation day where their talent level is assessed. NO CUTS! Players are then placed in a draft and our coaching staff forms teams by age and, in some cases, gender. These teams are placed in divisions to play in a 10 week league.

"We recently moved from California to Fort Wayne and the first thing my 8 year old asked me was if he could still play flag football. After asking around I chose The Plex. My son’s first practice was the second day after arriving in town and the entire staff couldn’t have been more welcoming. The Coach got on one knee so he was at eye level with my son and started talking TO (not AT) him and after whatever was said, when they were done my son had a huge smile on his face and ran full force to the line to join the other kids. From that point on he was hooked and has loved coming to the Plex. I see many more years ahead of me watching him grow in the sport of flag football and sportsmanship with the help of the coaching staff at The Plex."
