Why Be a Fanatic?
Flag Football Fanatics is a non-profit youth organization that prides itself on providing a fun, safe, and positive atmosphere. The game of football provides unique opportunities for our children to grow both emotionally and physically.
We strongly believe in giving back to the community, and with this mindset, we have become the LARGEST NFL Flag Football organization in the state of Ohio with almost 5,800 participants in 2013 and the 2nd Largest in the USA. Our communication with you (the parents) has also helped us grow tremendously as we make a strong effort to return all phone calls and emails WITHIN 48 hours. Feel free to contact us anytime and remember that you can always register Online or by Mail.
