FALL 2021 SEASON
After a long year without in-person school sports, we're so excited to announce that FIYA Boys and Girls Flag Football will be returning for the Fall 2021 season! For more details on our Flag Football program, age divisions, rules, and how we operate our leagues, scroll below. Please also visit our Sports Page to learn more about additional sports we'll be offering for the 2021-22 school year as well as our full, tentative calendar for the year. We look forward to serving you and your schools through sports!
**UPDATE 9/1/21**: All FIYA in-person sports will follow the LA County Department of Health's "Protocol for Organized Youth Sports" which was updated August 30th and can be found at the link below. Note the weekly testing required by LAUSD schools now fulfills the testing requirements for sports as well, and vaccinated students/coaches do NOT need to test to participate in sports.
We will also work with all of our host facilities to ensure a safe playing environment is created for all of our participants. All information regarding any additional site-specific policies will be distributed at the pre-season coaches meeting.
If you'd like to be added to our email list to receive important announcements and information on the 2021-22 school year, please

Leagues & Locations
FIYA organizes its leagues geographically. That is, we group school teams together based on their physical location in order to minimize travel. Our league events are also centralized which means our games occur at a location in that league's region which hosts multiple games per day. While our participation grows each year and our leagues continue to expand all across Los Angeles, typically the following are our Flag Football regional leagues and field locations...
Henry Clay Middle School
San Fernando Valley Academy
Culver City Middle School
Frank Parent School
Crozier Middle School
Mark Twain Middle School
