A nearby elementary school needs a fb coach but they are flag and 8-on-8. First downs are marked 20 yards apart. Has anyone tried running SGDW or DTDW concepts in flag football? Any idea if it would work?

In addition to coaching 8u tackle football, I also coach 6u flag football. The rules are similar to the ones you described below except that it's 7-on-7 and there's no blocking (e.g. the kids can impede, but they cannot make contact).

Since we're not allowed to block, I lined up the kids in the double wing (which raised a few eyebrows because my 8u team runs mostly Single Wing). On each play, the FB runs dive, one WB runs counter, and the other runs sweep... I just change who gets the ball. This has worked pretty well for us in the first two scrimmages...our first game is on Saturday.

I look forward to seeing everyone else's responses!

A friendly reminder that there’s FLAG, and there’s FOOTBALL, no such thing as flag football.  🙂

It's all about having fun.  But losing aint fun!
