Description

This will be the seventh season of our fall Flag Football league The Flag football league is sponsor by the NFL and teams wear NFL jerseys. The difference between football and flag football is that instead of tackle to stop a play they wear a flag belt, that when pulled, stops the play. They set plays, run, catch footballs and score touch downs. Just like regular football but no knock down tackles are allowed. All games are played in Prospect Park on weekends starting in early September.

Our regular season starts on Saturday September 12th and ends on Sunday November 8th. Each team has a 10 game schedule. Playoffs start the weekend of November 14th. Playoffs are single elimination with all teams making the playoffs. All players must wear a protective mouthpiece. There are no exceptions! Official NFL Flag jerseys must be worn during play. Shirts must be tucked in during play. Football pants are allowed but not mandatory, otherwise only sweatpants or shorts with no pockets will be allowed. Flag belts must be worn around the waist and flags must be worn on the hip.
