Welcome to Flag Football for the Kids!

Who We Are:

Flag Football for the Kids (FFK) is a state-licensed non-profit organization founded in Philadelphia by medical students from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. We are based on the tenets of promoting lifelong fitness, sportsmanship, and charity. Our mission is specifically directed towards helping children who are not able to participate fully in athletics due to congenital or acquired medical diseases or disorders, using as a vehicle, the enthusiasm, team-spirit, and sense of community that are inherent to the game of flag football. Through various fundraising events, we aim to accomplish these goals.


Our Fundraising Programs: (For past charitable donations, please see the Donations page.)

  1. Charity Flag Football Tournament (Tournament of Champions)
    Annual one-day charity flag football tournament open to teams across the country. Register your team and compete to become the next Flag Football for the Kids National Champion. The proceeds from our most recent tournament were donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
  2. Flag Football Uniforms - Get free uniforms for your flag football team by raising money from local sponsors. A portion of the money raised covers the cost of great looking team uniforms, and the rest goes to charity.

Please check out the links for more information on these programs.
