Fort Wayne Youth Flag Football (FWYFF) at The Plex Ages 4-12

Fort Wayne Youth Flag Football (FWYFF) at The Plex is a recreational football program designed with age appropriate divisions for players of all skill ages 4-12. 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. FWYFF also fosters player self confidence, develops high self esteem, and builds strong character in all our participants. 

Players will be split into divisions by the director.  The divisions are as follows:

* Division ages go by the players age as of January 1st of the current year (as shown above).

Example: If a player is 6 years old on January 1, 2021, they are 6U eligible even if they turned 7 on January 2, 2021.  They may choose to move up to 8U, but they are eligible for 6U.

Players are able to play up a division, but are not able to play down a division.  If you want your player to play in a specific division (must be higher than the division they fall in too) please make sure you request that in the comments of the registration form.

What Parents are Saying...

"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."
