South County Athletic Association (SCAA) has youth sports programs in the Lorton / Springfield VA area for football, soccer, cheerleading, lacrosse, basketball, field hockey, wresting, volleyball, and track.
Flex Football bridges the gap between flag and tackle football. Inspired by the NFL’s approach to practice, Flex Football provides a low impact, up-tempo, assignment and acumen focused development platform. Based on these principles, Flex Football is the ideal experience to develop true football fundamentals. The value lies in the development of advanced football skills while keeping the head out of the game.
By participating in Flex Football, your child will:
Compete in a 9V9, extension of 7V7, league that includes OL and DL
Be apart of a program that implements the necessary fundamentals and skills for making the transition to tackle football smooth and effortless
Be provided with a soft shell helmet, soft shell shoulder pads, game jersey and game shorts
Focus on position specific skill development in a competitive, low impact environment
Learn blocking techniques, coverage techniques, defeating blocks, route running, passing and catching with a soft-shell helmet and soft shell shoulder pads
