Flag Football Plays
New Plays = New Life
With flag football season in full swing, the addition of new flag football plays to your team’s arsenal is an excellent way to deal with the mid-season slump. Inject some variety and vitality into your team by mixing things up with a few new offensive plays that, when properly executed, are guaranteed to shakes things up and bring in the yardage. The following flag football plays can be easily adapted for teams of 6 to 10.
The first of the flag football plays is a simple offensive play that is intended for teams with a quick wide receiver. To set up, have your left and right wide receivers cover their sides as the quarterback prepares to pass. The right receiver is to drive off then slant towards deep right in an effort to clear out the right side of the field.
A second wide receiver on the left who starts closer to the quarterback slices in front of the play to receive the pass in the cleared out part on the right side. This player must be quick on his feet. In the meantime, the wide receivers are doing their best jobs to block, while the center and quarterback also do their best to keep things open and clear for the receiver to run with the ball as fast and far as he can.
Out and Up
The next flag football plays are dictated by the path run by the wide receiver upon catching the pass. The first play, known as the Out and Up, is set up like an other offensive play with wide receivers on both ends. The play can be executed on either the left or right side of the field.
To begin, the quarterback passes to either the left or right wide receiver. The receiver runs straight up the field for approximately 5 yards, then abruptly turns 90 degree towards the sidelines and runs for another few yards. Afterwards, he turns sharply and continues up the field as far as he can before being tackled. During this play it is the goal of all other players to try to keep the wide receiver’s path clear and free from obstacles.
Fade In and Out
Next we have a play known as the In and Out Fade. It is similar in set up and practice to the aforementioned play. The wide receiver on either the left or right side catches the pass from the quarterback. Then he runs straight up the field for about 5 yards before shifting approximately 45 degrees towards center field. After, he juts diagonally towards the corner of the end zone.
Again with the previous play, all other members of the team’s offensive squad are trying to maintain a clear path for the wide receiver to run the play. This play is our team’s favorite goal line route and works well for delivering many yards and even touchdowns.
