The UniSA Eagles Gridiron Club proudly presents the Uni SA Flag Football League! The Uni SA Flag Football League was set up to grow the game of Gridiron within South Australia and acts as an introduction to the sport for many people. The Uni SA Flag Football League is entering its third year in 2017 and after two successful seasons it has proven to be a fun and exciting competition. The Uni SA Flag Football League is open to all players above the age of 14 and we encourage both males and females to participate in the League.
Flag football is a version of American football/Gridiron where the basic rules of the game are similar to those of the mainstream game (often called “tackle football” for contrast), but instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier (“deflagging”) to end a down. A flag football team consists of 8 to 10 players, five of those players are allowed on the field at a time. When a team is within five yards of a touchdown, they are not allowed to run the ball. They must use a passing play.
We look forward to having you be part of our 2017 Flag Football competition, if you have any questions or are looking at joining a team please contact us via email at email@example.com
