About Spring Flag Football

The Burlington Minor Football Association (BMFA) has designed a Flag Football program to give youth throughout Burlington and the surrounding communities an opportunity to participate in exciting and fast-paced Flag Football! Our non-contact flag football program is open to all boys and girls between 5 and 18 years of age.

Playing flag football provides opportunities to get active, learn new skills and get healthy. Best of all, anyone of any shape, size, experience, or skill level can play and contribute to their team. Games are played with 5 players on from each team on the field at a time meaning that ALL players are involved in every single play. The result is a ton of fun as everyone gets involved!

Games are played on turf fields and officiated by referees from Southern Ontario Touch Football Officials Association (SOFTOA), and staffed with personnel capable of rendering first aid and treatment for on field injuries.

Each player is issued a jersey, shorts, a mouthguard, their own flag belt, and team portrait.

Female teams and League

The Spring Flag season is a co-ed league, and on a yearly basis has seen a steady increase of female
participation. Each year the league rosters many all female teams which has led to many players and parents asking about the availability of an all female league. At this point the BMFA will continue to offer a co-ed league only, but if there is significant interest a league could be formed.

The BMFA would like to form co-ed, female, and male representational teams for future Football Ontario tournaments.

Coaching discount

Without the support of our coach’s this program is a no go. In appreciation of the contribution to the
program head coaches will be eligible for a $100 credit towards a player’s registration.
