NEW TO FFX?
So you’re new to FlagFootballX and you’re not sure how to get started, Right? Well, first we have to tell you a little bit about what we do.
There are 4 different styles of flag football:
8-on-8 Screen –
Similar to the Intramurals you may have played in college. There is no contact allowed but the blockers may screen block a rusher. Played on a regular width field but a bit shorter length wise. We have a Women’s league and a Men’s League that plays on Sundays.
9-on-9 Contact –
Kick-offs, extra points, field goals, hard blocking, this is a lot like regular football but without the pads. Played on a regular field. Only Men’s leagues available on Sundays in Lancaster.
5-on-5 Screen –
Played on a field only 64 yards long and 25 wide. It’s similar to the 8-on-8 but with only five men and the QB can only run after a hand-off or a throwback. We have divisions for everyone including Men, Coed and Women’s Tournaments. Our Sunday leagues have 3 divisions and our Saturday 5on5 tournaments have divisions for Competitive, Recreational and unranked players. We have Saturday Cash Tournaments and Regular tournaments depending on what time of year it is.
Mainly a passing game with no running allowed by the QB and a lot of man coverage on defense. Usually only our Competitive and Elite players play this game. We usually have 4on4 leagues and tournaments going year round. The 4on4 league is on Saturdays and the 4on4 cash tournaments are spread throughout the year.
What’s the difference between Leagues and Tournaments?
The main difference is that a league lasts many weeks in a row culminating with a final league championship, similar to the NFL, and the Tournaments are events that happen on one or two days of the same weekend. So, if you want to get a team together and play once a week for a month or two, then you should play in a league and if you have a team that wants to play A LOT of games in one weekend then you should enter a tournament. Or do both!!
Various Leagues –
Right now we have 8on8 leagues on Sunday’s in the Grand Prairie and Cedar Hill areas. We also have leagues on Thursdays from time to time so check out the current or upcoming leagues links to see what’s going on.

Draft Tournaments – 5on5
The draft tournaments are for everyone. Register online as an individual and get drafted to play in the draft tournament. Everyone that enters gets put on a team and gets to play. Some people do this when they don’t have a team and other players do it because they like to play with different players for a change to see if they can win a tournament with a brand new team. Either way, its a blast every time. For the new guys, the draft tournament is an easy way to find a team because everyone in the tournament either has a team or is looking for a team.
