Indoor and Outdoor leagues played year-round

We are your headquarters for flag football in Madison. We run Spring and Fall outdoor leagues every year and Fall and Winter indoor leagues if we have a facility available.

 

Basic Info

Some league information appears on this page. More is found in our Frequently Asked Questions and the rulebooks linked in the grey menu bar toward the top of the page. General club policies can be found at the bottom of this page in the Info & Help section.

 

Spring Leagues: Run approximately mid-April to mid-July. Co-ed games are played on Sundays, generally between 11 am and 2 pm. Men's league games are played on weekday nights from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.

Fall Outdoor Leagues: Run approximately early August to mid-October. Sunday co-ed games are played from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm before the NFL season starts, and 9:00 am to noon once the NFL season has started. Men's league games are played on weekday nights from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.

Late Fall/Winter Indoor Leagues: Offered upon facility availability

 

Don’t have a team? You can sign up as an Individual and MSSC will place you on a team if we can. Please see the information on Individual signups below. Don't have quite enough players for a team? You can indicate that you are looking for more players in the comments section during registration.

 

Format

  • Teams consist of six players on the field. In the co-ed league, at least two must be female
  • All MSSC leagues are non-contact, no blocking leagues. There is no line play and players may not block for ball carriers. All players are eligible receivers and runners
  • 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
  • Please read the ruleboks linked in the grey bar toward the top of the page for full details on formats and rules

 

League Capacity

 

Weekday leagues typically have a capacity that varies depending on which field(s) we are able to get. The Sunday league has no capacity and thus your team could play anytime between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm during the spring season. If you are considering a weekday league, do not wait until the last minute to register if you want to play.

 

 

Divisions and Skill Level

 

Co-ed: We will segment the Sunday league into separate divisions if possible. If not enough teams sign up for any given division, the league may be condensed into one divsion. We define our divisions in the following manner:

  • Upper: Teams of average or better skill level
  • Lower: Teams who are newer to organized football and/or have a low level of skill and understanding of football strategy

 

Men's: Our men's league tends to skew heavily toward Upper skill level teams. We welcome teams of any and all skill levels though, and the league will be segmented into Upper and Lower divisions if we have enough teams register at each level. We do want lesser skilled teams to understand that sometimes all teams are placed in the same division and they will be involved in a number of blowouts when that happens.

 

There is no guarantee we will be able to segment any given league into separate divisions, and all teams may end up in the same division.

 

Individual Sign Up Information

 

  • Men: We typically are not able to place many 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 many times we can form a "Free Agent" team.
  • Ladies: If you want to be placed on a team, it's best to 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.
  • Please note that you will not be contacted unless we are able to get you on a team.

 

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

 

Dates and Locations

  • Spring leagues generally run from late April to early July (weather permitting). Fall leagues run early August to late October
  • The 2022 Spring and Fall men's leagues are held at Breese Stevens Field. The Fall coed league will be at Olbrich Park again

 

Scheduling

 

Since it's asked all the time: Schedules are posted a few days after registration closes. If you signed up for Monday nights, your team plays on Mondays nights, and you should be available for any time slot.

 

Prizes and Other Benefits

  • Champions t-shirts and gift cards will be awarded in the Upper/Competitive divisions when leagues are segmented by skill level. Lower divisions offer no prizes or recognition of any kind.
