How big is a NFL Flag team?

We play 5 on 5 with team sizes between 8 & 10 players.

How big is the field?

Field is 30 x 70 yards including 10 yards for each end zone

Where do you practice?

We match kids to the closest coach to where they live. It is coaches' discretion to where to practice. Usually a local park or wash is fine.
We may also have reserved park space for limited number of teams to use during the week. (Some may be lighted)
Coaches can elect to add a lighted practice field for an additional fee.

How many teams?

We currently have over several hundred kids playing each season and have had over a dozen teams in the middle divisions with our 5-6 and 13-14 divisions being a little smaller.

How many games?

For competitive team play we offer 8 regular season games in spring and fall with a shorter winter season.
For recreational play we offer practices and games with 7 weeks of game play.

The end of the season has 1 or 2 weeks of tournament games where everyone plays.
You should plan on both weekends as the schedule is based on records.

Spring Season ends the weekend prior to Memorial Day
Fall Season ends the weekend prior to Thanksgiving
Winter Season ends just prior to spring season beginning

Is there a late registration?

If a team has availability we can sometimes add late players. We have to expedite equipment for those new players. In order to accomplish this we need to charge a higher fee plus a $30 expedite fee.
