Did You Know?

There are 780 SOTX Flag Football athletes and Unified partners in the Lone Star State!

Flag Football is SOTX’s newest sport – it kicked off in 2011.

Flag football has existed almost as long as tackle football. The first game was played in 1933, and it became a popular recreational activity on military bases in the 1940s.
