Welcome to the home of

1st & Goal Flag Football















 1st & Goal is a family league, we have been blessed to serve the inland empire since 2010. We are proud to say we were the 1st NFL Flag League in Riverside. NFL Flag/USA Football is non-contact, 5 on 5, and co-ed. Players ages are 4-16. All games are at Nichols park in Riverside on Saturdays. Enjoy great family time at the park, have a picnic and let the kids play on the equipment instead of traveling from city to city or park to park for games.  1st & Goal is a positive, safer alternative for those parents who do not want their kids in tackle too young. The players will learn the football fundamentals, teamwork, discipline, agility, catching, throwing, and accuracy of pulling the flag.  Practice locations in various zip codes(not all divisions practice at each location). Some travel teams in Moreno Valley and Corona. Flag offers tackle players the ability to sharpen their football skills and stay in shape in a fun non-threatening environment. Many NFL Players like Drew Brees played flag in his youth then put on pads in High School. We are proud to see our players leave us and go straight to starting positions as Freshman in HS.  Why not start your player next season?  We play in the Fall (August - November) and in the Spring (February - May).  Teams are welcome from all areas.
