Since 1946 the City of Fort Collins youth football program has taught kids important life skills.  Generations of Fort Collins children have discovered a game they love while making lifelong friends, building character and staying physically active.

Today the City of Fort Collins Recreation Department continues to offer a wide variety of youth and adult football programs.  Young football players can participate in ultimate football, flag football, and tackle football.  Recreation also offers adult flag football leagues for those older athletes seeking gridiron glory.

  • Ultimate Football: Our Ultimate football program introduces children to the concepts of football in a non-contact setting.
  • Flag Football: The flag football program offers the fundamentals of football without tackling
  • Tackle Football: The tackle football program teaches skills and fundamentals of the game with an emphasis on sportsmanship and equal participation.
