Wheeling and Ohio Valley Flag Football

We are not strangers to American Pro Football in the Ohio Valley. We are less than a two-hour drive away from Canton and the NFL Hall of Fame. We even have a few OVAC legends enshrined! Highlands Sports Complex is proud to safely introduce the youth of the Ohio Valley to flag football.

Flag Football is a popular variation of American football where the basic rules are similar to tackle football. Instead of tackling (or being equipped with helmets and shoulder pads), the defensive team must remove the flag from a players belt. Rules and regulations vary league to league, but the fun is consistent.

Football stars from Martins Ferry, Bellaire, Steubenville, Weirton, and Moundsville get their start by playing Flag Football. Start your journey with Highlands Sports Complex.
