Adult & Youth Flag Football Plays

The key to any team’s success starts with not only having the best flag football plays at their disposal, but knowing how and when to use them.

Having the best adult & youth flag football plays at your disposal is one of the few ways you can improve your game and your teams success off the field through strategy and planning. Our adult & youth flag football plays are designed to prepare you for both as best as possible, and we’re firm believers in the quality over quantity, less is more theory. Nobody has time to look through hundreds of flag football plays on the field, and what typically works best is a solid 5-10 plays you can rely on while also understanding how to disguise, alter, tweak individual routes and adjust based on what the defense is giving you to stay one step ahead at all times.

Below is a breakdown of what you’ll see from each of our plays, with one of our 8 on 8 flag football plays to the left utilizing each aspect of a typical play for demonstrating.



flag football quarterback


The primary ball handler for the team, typically the player who will take most snaps directly and handle playcalling duties.  Gets all the credit when offense is clicking, and all the blame when it isn’t…

Flag Football Center


One of the most important positions on offense, yet typically overlooked.  Having an experienced center who can get the snap to the QB quickly and consistently, side-snap and block while also being an effective receiver. is invaluable.

Flag Football Receiver

Receivers & Blockers

Basically everyone else on the field who isn’t the primary QB or center is considered a receiver and/or blocker depending on format. All players numbered 1 through 7 for easy identification in the huddle.

Flag Football Route - Primary Read

Primary Read – Flag Football Route

All of our flag football plays will have a hot read, the guy we feel like is most likely to be your first read if run against the proper defense and match-up. Some plays are designed with several, but we highlight the most likely option.

Flag Football Route - Basic

Secondary Read – Flag Football Routes

All your standard flag football routes included, these will typically be your secondary reads on the play depending on the defense, run by your receivers and blockers if eligible.

Flag Football Routes - Motion


If you’ve read through our series on effective flag football play calling, you’d know how important motion can be (pre-snap movement of a player to change the formation) for disguising and causing confusion. You can implement motion into any of our flag football plays.

Flag Football Route - Lateral

Pitch, Lateral, Throwback or Direct Snap

Basically any time the ball travels backwards from one player to another, the orange striped line indicates from who to whom it should travel. If you’re format doesn’t allow this option in your rules, the route may be altered.

Flag Football Plays - Blocking


If your league allows screen or contact blocking, the blue line with a flat head indicates which direction the blocker should pick up the rusher from.  If your league doesn’t allow blocking, change to a secondary route.
