Flag Football Worksheet

 Oct 17, 2013 - Amy Stotmeister
My son is finishing his regular season in a competative, full tackle football league where they are in the championships and will be going to a National compation in Las Vages. My question is he has more than completed the requiremtns for flag football so can he recive it even though he was in tackle? Also is there any additional achivements in this area that he may meet?

@Amy - In the Guide to Safe Scouting document, tackle football is specifically unauthorized, so I would say "no, he has not earned the pin".  Since he has so much football expertise, this could be a great opportunity for him to share his knowledge with his den while completing the flag football requirements.

I am a Webelos den leader and I'm working there sportsman achievement. So We played two hand touch football because we don't have any flags to play flag football. Can this count for the flag football belt loop?

@Steve - The requirements specifically state "flag" football many times.  Rules for flag football can be found at: USFFA, IFAF, NFL
