Unleash The Blitz

Based out of United Sports in Downingtown, PA, The Blitz is a new competitive flag football club, comprised of players from our NFL Flag Football leagues. Locations for our leagues include Malvern, Lancaster, and Downingtown in PA, as well as Hockessin, DE.

Play With Passion

We drive every player to give their all, embrace the thrill of competition, win and lose the right way, and enjoy the camaraderie that comes with being part of a dedicated team. Join us for tryouts to experience the excitement and energy of The Blitz!

Who We Are

The Blitz is a youth flag football club that participates in tournaments throughout the year. We believe in hard work & discipline, and we promote teamwork and sportsmanship, while aiming to compete at the highest level. We work hard, we play hard, and we compete hard!

We believe that every young athlete that plays with us needs to have 3 key things:

  • Desire – if you come to work hard, the results come

  • Sportsmanship – we play hard, but we’ll do it the right way

  • Leadership – we support each other, and we lead by example

Teams play 5v5, so rosters are typically only 8-10 players. Tryouts are twice annually, with Fall/Winter season tryouts in August, while Spring/Summer season will tryout in December. See below for more information on our next tryouts, and how your child can become a member of The Blitz!
