Co-ed and Men's leagues begin in April 2018

We are your headquarters for flag football in Madison. We run both Spring and Fall co-ed and men's leagues every year. For Winter 2017-18 we will also have an indoor league.

 

Notes for Spring 2018 Leagues

We have made a number of additions to our offerings for Spring 2018. There is now a weekday co-ed league - held on Wednesdays at Garner Park. We also have both east and west side men's leagues on Mondays and Thursdays - east side being held at Elvehjem Park and west side at Garner Park. All of these new leagues have a capacity of seven teams, so do not wait to sign up if you want to play.

 

Spring Leagues: Run approximately mid-April to early July. Co-ed games are played on Sunday afternoons or Wednesday evenings. Men's League games are played on Monday or Thursday nights.

Fall Leagues: Run approximately early August to mid-October. Co-ed games are played on Sundays - approximately 11:00 am to 4:00 pm before the NFL season starts, and between approximately 9:00 am and noon once the NFL season has started. The Men's League plays on Monday or Thursday evenings. All of your games will be on the same night of the week.

Winter Leagues: These are held indoors on a turf field. We will offer men's leagues for 2017-18. Dimensions are smaller than our outdoor fields. The first session starts in early November.

 

Don’t have a team? You can sign up as an Individual and MSSC will place you on a team if we have room. Please see the information on Individual signups below. Don't have quite enough players for a team? Teams that are looking for additional players can indicate this by having the Team Captain check the appropriate box during registration.

 

Format

  • Teams consist of six players on the field. In the Co-ed League, at least two must be female.
  • Shirts, equipment, and referees are provided by MSSC. We use Flag-a-Tag belts, widely considered the best flag belts available. Belts contain three flags per player
  • Games consist of two 20 minute halves.

 

Divisions

 

Co-ed: The Wednesday league will only have one "open" division. There are separate divisions in the Sunday league:

Competitve: Teams of above average skill level who take the game seriously and want to win.

Intermediate: Teams of average skill level who fall somewhere in between Rec and Competitive.

Upper Rec: Teams who understand football and have some level of skill but would not fair well in the Intermediate division. This division awards no prizes.

Lower Rec: Teams with very low skill or understanding of football strategy. This division awards no prizes.

 

Men's: All spring 2018 men's leagues will only have one division, as there is only one field available at each location

 

Individual Sign Up Information

 

Men: We typically are not able to place males who register as Individuals in the co-ed league because most teams are not looking for additional males. Being placed as an Individual in one of our men's leagues is much easier since we can normally form a "Free Agent" team.

Ladies: If you want to be placed on a team, it's best to just sign up on your own and NOT request to be placed with a male, as there is a much smaller chance a team will pick you up if you want to play with a guy.

 

Do not register for multiple nights if you are not able to play on multiple nights. We count on all free agents being available for any and all nights for which they register. If you are able to play on multiple nights but only want to play one night, register for the night you prefer and indicate in the comments section that you would be able to play on other nights.

 

Dates and Locations

  • Spring leagues generally run from late April to early July (weather permitting)
  • Spring Sunday co-ed is held at Olin Park. Wednesday co-ed is at Garner Park. Monday and Thursday men's leagues are at Elvehjem and Garner Parks

Prizes and Other Benefits
