Real Difference for example: In all United States High Schools; if football is played, tackle football is played by men, and flag football is played by girls or for fun. In tackle football, the ball carrier needs to be taken to the ground by a tackle. The knee needs to hit the ground, by getting hit to the ground. In touch football, or in the many variations such as one-touch and two-touch, you merely need to touch the ball carrier for him to be "down". In flag football, players wear flags, usually attached to the waist by Velcro. The tackler must pull off the ball carrier's flag thing for him to be "down."

What is the difference between tackle touch and flag football?

The difference is in what you're allowed to do to stop the offensive player. Tackle: full contact, whatever it takes to get the person off his/her feet. Touch: once you're touched, the play is over. Flag: players wear belts around their waist which have two velcro flags hanging off the sides. Once a flag is pulled off the player with the ball, the play is over.

What is the difference between tackle footballtouch football and flag football?

Well, the most obvious difference is the method through which a player is considered down. Tackle football allows for tackling, flag football requires the removal of a strip of cloth hanging from the belt, and touch requires one or two hands placed below the belt (or sometimes anywhere on the body). Any of these may require a fallen player to be down by contact, though this is rare.There are usually drastic rule differences, as well. Flag football and touch football may allow any number of players per side (rarely more than 11), and they often allow any offensive player to catch a pass. Tackle football usually has 11 players per side and interior offensive linemen are not eligible to receive the ball. There are often other rule differences, such as what constitutes a first down, what constitutes a legal offensive formation, motion before the snap, etc.
