There are a few different ways teams can score points in flag football. The first one is to make a touchdown, usually by running the ball from the midfield to the touchdown zone for that team. This is worth six points, and is the main way people earn points in this game.
There are a few ways to earn extra points, though. To earn one extra point, a touchdown must be scored from the three yard line. To earn two, a touchdown must be successful from the 10 yard line. To earn two more points, a safety must be called. (A safety, for those who don’t know, is when a player is down in his team’s own end zone. Kick off is from the fourteen yard line.)
