Using flag football strategies to run your defense is a lot easier then using flag football strategies to run an offense. when creating your defense a couple of things to focus on are 1. not giving up the big play and 2. pulling the flag. When running a defense a simple formation is to have 2 Defensive Ends, 2 Defensive Backs, 2 Linebackers, and 2 safeties.
We will start with your defensive ends first. Your defensive ends should be your top 2 athletes. Why? Because in flag football most offensive plays take time to develop. With you top 2 athletes creating havoc in the backfield your defense has already won half the battle. Have your defensive ends line up about 3 feet outside of the tackle and let them loose. Their main job is to force the offense into mistakes giving the rest of your defense a chance to capitalize on those mistakes.
