Description

This program is designed for beginning (no experience necessary) and intermediate players and covers both individual and team skills.

Players come once a week for sessions which initially are focused primarily on skill building, but soon are split 50-50 between practice and live scrimmages. The lead instructor determines when the players are ready as a group to scrimmage. This may take 2-3 weeks for the younger ages or as little as one week for the older ages. There are no fixed teams - teams are formed each week by the instructors. No scores or standings are kept. The focus is on LEARNING and on HAVING FUN!

Lead Instructor

Experienced Football Instructors from our previous Instructional Flag Football Programs will be returning for the Summer session.

Equipment
  • Every player MUST have a mouth guard, which can be purchased at any sporting goods store. The Edge sells them for $4.95 plus tax, but you should purchase them in advance since they need to be heated and molded to your child's teeth.
  • Players may wear sneakers or their outdoor soccer shoes (if they have them and prefer to do so.)
  • All campers should bring a water bottle containing PLAIN WATER. Please write your camper's name on the container.
  • Cost

    The Facility

    The Edge Sports Center Indoor Football Field is 60 yards long and 40 yards wide, making it the largest public indoor football facility in Northern Colorado. This field is approximately 50% wider than an official indoor soccer rink (where some flag football leagues are played), and rectangular in shape, making it a much more similar to an outdoor football field. The height of the playing area along the center of the field is 30 feet, giving more than ample room to ‘air it out’ on passes.

    The field is equipped with the latest generation of in-filled synthetic turf that "looks, feels, and plays like real grass." This is the same type of surface that Colorado State University recently installed on both its football practice field on campus, at Hughes Football Stadium, and in the new CSU Indoor Football Facility under construction in 2009. Many other college and professional teams are adopting this new technology for its safety and playability.

    The football field at The Edge Sports Center was designed with player safety as a top priority. There are no ‘hockey-style’ boards lining the playing field. Instead, the outer boundaries of the playing field (sidelines and back-of-the end zone line) are defined with permanent lines inlaid in the turf. On three sides of the field, there is six feet of space between the limit of the field and the padded wall of the building. On the fourth side, there is an 11-foot space between the sideline and the padded wall of the field area. In addition to the significant space between the exterior lines of the field and the walls of the building, all walls are PADDED with two inches of vinyl covered foam. This design significantly reduces the potential of injury when the players go out-of bounds.

    Over 100 metal-halide lamps provide the best lighting around for indoor fields.

    Youths who play outdoor football (or soccer) and have athletic shoes with molded rubber cleats may wear them on the field. Sneakers or tennis shoes work just fine also, especially for the younger players. Metal cleats are not allowed. Players with screw-on cleats must check their cleats from time to time to ensure that they are not overly worn to the point where the metal shows through.

    For youth camps and clinics, we have two setups: Older kids use the 'full-field' setup diagrammed above. Parent and spectator seating is on the south side of the field. For younger players, a smaller field size is used which allows us to have two fields in use at the same time, and to provide seating for parents and spectators in between the two fields.

    If you haven’t played football on this turf, you don’t know how enjoyable indoor football can be! Come in for a ‘test drive!’
