The game of American football has been played since the mid-1800’s. The first College game occurred between Princeton and Rutgers on November 6th, 1869. Meanwhile, the professional game has been played in some form since 1895.
The games of Touch and Flag Football have been around nearly as long as tackle football. The first remembrance of these types of games is “Touch and Tail” Football, which was played was in the 1930’s. Flag football as we know it today was developed on military bases in the early 1940’s as a recreational sport for military personal. After World War II, recreational leagues soon developed. These leagues were patterned around the format used by softball leagues, and with their creation, the game we know and love was born. Arguably the most famous of these leagues was the National Flag & Touch Football League (NTFL), which was the dominant national league for over 15 years. Flag Football league Manhattan Beach.
Flag football is a version of American football 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, and contact is not permitted between players; it will result in a penalty for the team that initiates it.

Chiefly because there is no dominant sanctioning organization for the sport, the game has mutated into many variations: 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, and 4 players on each side; coed or single-gender; without kicking and punting and with point-after conversions (including some with 1, 2, and 3 point tries) or without; and field sizes that vary from full Canadian Football League (CFL) size, National Football League (NFL) size (120 yards long by 531⁄3 yards wide), to fields a third that size.

An important distinction is whether linemen are allowed to catch passes (“Eligible Linemen”) or, as in the NFL / CFL, are not allowed to do so (“Ineligible Linemen”). Flag (and touch) football may also be divided into “contact” or “non-contact”, depending on whether or not blocking is allowed; if allowed, blocking is usually restricted to the chest. The ability or inability for the quarterback to advance the ball past the line of scrimmage (LOS) by running is another rule subject to variation by league. The sport has a strong amateur following and several national and international competitions each year sponsored by various associations. Flag Football League Manhattan Beach.

The specific rules of flag football vary widely by league, though all share in common their replication of the rules of traditional US-American football with tackling replaced by flag-pulling. Traditional American football rules are often omitted, changed or simplified to reflect the more recreational nature of the game, desire to avoid physical contact and injury, and the generally smaller number of participating players per side.
