Twins – Triple Slant
Multiple slant routes to choose from based on how the defense is lined up. Hitting a quick slant is one of the most effective routes in flag football as it gets the receiver moving almost full speed down the field. Once he has the ball in his hands, the defense may be on their heels reacting to the quick pass.
Trips – Double Drag
Trips flag football play with two underneath drag route should the deep route be covered. The deep is a post that continues to the corner. Switch this route whether your facing a 1 safety or 2 safety defense.

Trips – Center Loop Run
Common running flag football play for younger teams. Many leagues require the center to be at least one yard behind the line of scrimmage when taking a handoff. This play satisfies this requirement.
Twins – Short Underneath
The main focus of this play is hitting the underneath receiver just as he crosses the middle of the field or a little beyond. If the defender on that side chases the Blue receiver, it could open the left side for some good old fashioned YAC (yards after catch). If Red is covered, there are outlets to Blue and Green. The routes shown are suggested, but in reality, these two will need to move to find the open area.
