2022 Fall OTM Competitive Youth Flag Football League

OTM Flag Football is a competitive youth flag football league for the surrounding communities of the Birmingham area. Players register as teams thus providing their own coach. We are offer competitive divisions for Grades 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th/8th. And Ages 7U, 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, and 12U/13U.  Below is the age chart. 

Please note that for the Southeast Championship Flag Football Tournament in November and most travel youth flag football tournaments will take teams based on age only.

Registration is open. Competitive teams practice as much as they can in the summer to avoid multiple competitive and recreational practices in the fall. Competitive games will begin in mid September. Competitive game will be on Wednesdays at Homewood location. With the idea of keeping the weekends open for teams to participate in travel baseball or flag football tournaments. Practices are determined by your local park. The last day to register your competitive team is Thursday, September 1st.    

We highly recommend competitive flag football teams to participate in it's local youth flag recreational leagues. Please let your local flag football director know that you have a competitive team. So if you have a 3rd grade OTM team, you will need to let your local flag football rec league director know that your players cannot practice on Wednesday nights due to OTM games.

Uniforms are not included in the team registration fee. The team registration fee only includes officials and flag belts for your players. 

Games begin on Wednesdays in mid-September. Games are at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm younger kids play at the early times. 

Keep in mind if you have a competitive team that has to travel aways like Gardendale or Trussville we can always adjust the schedule if needed. If your team cannot make the 6pm games we can schedule 7pm or 8pm games only. Or if you prefer to travel into Hoover 4 times instead of 8 we can schedule you double headers every other week to help out with the travel. 

Division Winners of the OTM Competitive Flag Football League will receive a free team registration bid to the Southeast Flag Football Tournament the weekend of November 19th and 20th
