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 PreK-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.

Leagues are run throughout the year in Fall (Sept – Nov), Winter (Jan – Feb), Spring (March – May), and Summer (July) at locations across Orange County. To find a league, select your location below.
