American Flag Football is Here in Shekou

American Flag Football is Here in Shekou Flag Football – What’s that?

Flag football was designed to minimize the injuries caused by tackle football. Aimed primarily as an alternative sport for American children, flag football has gone on to inspire numerous leagues throughout the world.  And we are pleased to introduce this sport to the Shekou’s youth because it’s a sport the whole family can enjoy says, Wallace Horibata who is organizing the sport locally.

Basically, Flag football is played in a similar fashion to regular football. The biggest difference revolves around stopping the offensive ball carrier.

In traditional football, this is done by tackling the opposing player. But according to flag football rules, each player wears a belt with flags around their waist. Instead of having to tackle the player, the defender must yank the belt free from the player’s waist. When this is accomplished, the ball carrier is considered
“tackled”.

The game lasts for 40 minutes, with two 20-minute halves. A 2-minute rest break occurs between halves. If overtime occurs, a three-minute rest period will take place before play resumes.
