About Friday Night Lights Flag Football

EAA Football is excited to be launching our first ever spring/summer flag football program! This season is called Friday Night Lights Flag Football to highlight the fun, unique experience of playing football under the lights, just as the "big kids" do on the high school varsity teams. We will host all games at the Elkhorn South High School football fields where teams, players, and parents can come together at one location to enjoy a lively night of football fun!

Game play will be a 5v5 style flag football with an approximate game time of 40 minutes. 

All of our football programs are Co-Ed. Flag Football at EAA is for players in Grades K through 5. Our program is a recreational-focused program intended to introduce young athletes to the game in a fun and developmental way. 

Team rosters are generally formed with players that attend the same school within the Elkhorn School District.  Players can make team, coach & buddy requests in the registration. 

SEASON PLAY

The Friday Night Lights Flag Football season begins with practices starting the week of May 16. Practice days and times will vary by team. Games will be played on Friday evenings in June and will be about 40 minutes in length.
