About the Leagues

The Matt Leinart Flag Football League, in conjunction with the NFL Flag Football program, is a flag football league for kids in grades K-8th, with the emphasis on community fun. The league is for both boys and girls of all skill levels and promotes a competitive, confidence-building, non-contact football experience. Founded in Newport Beach in 2010, the goal of the league is to provide a fun league for kids to be involved in, while also developing and furthering their football skills.

Games are run on Friday nights in the Fall, Winter and Spring at locations in Costa Mesa, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Newport Beach, San Juan Capistrano and Ladera Ranch.

Leagues are run throughout the year in Fall (Sept – Nov), Winter (Jan – Feb), Spring (March – May), and Summer (July). The leagues are for all skill levels, and can be found throughout the area. To find a league, select your location below.
