Grid Iron is Colorado's premier NFL-approved youth flag football experience! Grid Iron Flag Football offers competitive fun for boys and girls ages 5-14. Our programs include REAL NFL jerseys, REAL Kickoffs, REAL Punts and Certified Coaches and Referees.

Grid Iron Flag Football offers competitive fun for boys and girls ages 5-14 including our Grid Iron Girls program designed for all girl teams. The eight week fall season kicks off Sept 13 in Highlands Ranch and includes a "Super Bowl" tournament. Our game day features a carnival-like experience with food, music, games & great family fun! Grid Iron - now this is football!

Grid Iron Flag Football has developed a unique flag football program providing Real Kick Offs, Real Punts, Girls Only Leagues, Certified Coaches and we wrap these around a well-organized, family oriented program as an NFL Flag Football member. The Grid Iron Challenge (Pass, Punt & Kick Contest) give the entire family an opportunity to participate.

Grid Iron has a dual focus for our players:

- We want to develop our players to prepare them for their next level of competition using our age-specific player development model.
- We want to keep our players excited about playing football by delivering a positive youth sports experience.

Grid Iron Flag Football offers three eight-week seasons - fall, spring and summer. Our players participate in OTAs (Organized Team Activities) just like the Pros! OTA's are arranged by your coach and include weekly practices.

In addition to organized league play, you can enroll your player in skill development clinics or summer camps. Think you have what it takes to lead a team to the play-offs? Or the Grid Iron Bowl? Get certified as a coach and have the time of your life on the Grid Iron!

Grid Iron Flag Football was founded in 2011 and now includes franchised locations in Arizona and Colorado. Grid Iron offers youth sports leagues, camps, and clinics for boys and girls ages 5-14. We’ve developed separate programs for Boys (ages 9-14) and Girls (ages 9-14) so that our programs have something to offer kids of all ages.

Why is Grid Iron Flag Football Different? We love kids, we love sports, and we love seeing kids develop while they play sports.

Our coach certification program is used to ensure that participants receive a consistent coaching experience focused on player safety and development as an athlete.

The mission of Grid Iron is inspired from Athletic Excellence University:

Grid Iron’s mission is to educate and prepare athletes of all ages to maximize their performance, knowledge and abilities for their next level of sports and to be better prepared than their competition.

Grid Iron Flag Football youth programs are designed with a focus on competitive fun and inclusivity (everybody plays) while offering parents a convenient and highly organized brand that delivers:

• Consistent coaching experience
• Sports education (game rules, preventive injury)
• Skills development
• Teamwork
• Leadership development
• Focus
• Physical fitness
• Fun oriented toward the whole family

Grid Iron’s inaugural Colorado league will launch in September, 2014 in Highlands Ranch with plans to develop additional leagues throughout Douglas County, Arapahoe County and Jefferson County over the next couple of years. For more information, please contact:
