FLEX IS REAL FOOTBALL
We designed Flex to emulate the real game in every way. With blocking allowed, the entire run game is incorporated. We use traditional point scoring and 1st down yardage so on 3rd and 9, our players learn to look for the draw or screen. Along with the pass rush, Flex allows for blitzing. Blitz recognition and pick up is an essential part of the game that should be mastered at the youth level. In order to pick up the blitz, you have to have somewhere to shoot the hands and have a solid base. In Flex Football, we require every player to wear a soft-shell helmet and shoulder pad. The soft-shell gear provides a target for the hands to shoot, thumbs up and elbows in, reinforcing the correct technique of how to approach contact and let’s be honest, football isn’t football without equipment.
