Flag Gridiron (or Flag Football) is a modified version of tackle American football.  Instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team tackles a player by pulling their flag or flag belt. The object of the game is to score touchdowns by advancing the ball up the field by running or throwing the ball, and crossing the end zone line. 

In the USA, American football has been played since the mid-1800s. The first college game of football occurred between Princeton and Rutgers in 1895. The game of flag football has been around for as nearly as long as tackle football. Flag football was played as a recreational activity for American military personal in the 1940s. Recreational leagues began in the USA in the 1940s and 50s.

Flag Gridiron requires each player to have a flag or flag belt, an American football, and cones to designate the end zones. No helmets or shoulder pads are allowed.   Good flag gridiron players can start, stop, and change directions quickly. Players can work on their agility by running round cones, and jumping rope. Anyone can play Flag Gridiron! Men, women and children!
