There are four main variations of Unkitted American Football –
Flag Football is the earliest and is usually played with either 5 or 7 players on a team, with no contact allowed – a flag is attached to the players waist by a belt which is pulled off in order to tackle the ball-carrier. It is Coed.
Beach Football is a non-contact version of the sport played on beaches in America.
American 7s is a 7-a-side unkitted tackle version of the sport, bringing the game back to its origins as a version of Rugby. The man who codified it in New Jersey in 2006 said he played American Football in High School, but college wasn’t an option so he continued playing pick-up games of American Football in parks where players have no protective helmets or pads. He decided there was a need for the game to be codified and organised leagues set up.
