The Wight Hell Hounds are the Isle of Wight’s Adult Flag American Football team.
We train every Monday evening from 19:00 to 21:00 at the Isle of Wight Rugby Club, Footways Wootton Bridge, Isle Of Wight.
Flag Football is a non-contact 5 a side version of American Football, the game can be faster, it uses a running clock for 20 minutes each half and still contains running and passing but no kicking.
The players are tackled by removing the flag from the opponents belt. The field is smaller than the game most are used to watching on TV and there is no gridiron, just four downs to make it to half way then another four downs to get the ball into the oppositions end zone.
If a team succeeds in reaching the endzone they score 6 points and have the option to add a further 1 or 2 points with an extra play. 1 extra point sees the play start 5 yards from the endzone, 2 extra points sees the play start 12 yards from the endzone.
