FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Wilton Flag Football League Co-ed?  Yes, we are a Co-ed league where both boys and girls can be on the same team.  We also have a All Girls Flag Football League.
  • When will the Season Start?  The Spring season officially starts when the kids return from Spring Recess.  In the Fall the Regular season officially starts the first week of school. 
  • When will the Season End?  In the Spring the last game is the next to last weekend of school.   In the Fall the last game of the season will be the first weekend of November.  
  • Will we be playing other towns?  Yes if you participate in one of our travel jamborees.  The Saturday program is Wilton vs. Wilton.
  • What time and day will the practices be?  The Head Coaches will chose their own practice day and time, practice is usually 1 day a week and runs between 60 to 120 minute.  Players will need cleats and lots of water for every practice.
  • What time will the games be on Saturdays in the Fall?  We will try not to have a game earlier than 10am and no later than a 6pm start.  We will do our best to adjust our game times around other sports so our players can do more than one sport without having to race from one field to another.  Currently we play 2 games an hour at Upper and Lower Middlebrook with exact starting times at 12pm, 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:30pm and 6pm.  
  • Do I have to be a Wilton resident to play?  Yes & No, this league is for Wilton residents only.  However we will allow a non Wilton resident to join us as long as your town does not have a flag program and as room allows in our Wilton program.
  •  Can I choose a specific coach, team or friend to play with?  Yes & No, all teams are drafted each season based on preferred practice days and player evaluation history.  However you can request to play with a certain player or that a certain coach draft your child, all requests will be added to our draft notes.  There is no guarantee that you will be on a specific team or with a certain player, but your odds increase when we add the notes to the draft process.
  • Will all teams be perfectly balanced?  Yes & No, our goal will be to balance the teams the best we can.  However a perfectly balanced team is almost impossible to achieve because a teams success can be based on a coaches knowledge and skills as much as a players abilities and potential.  All players learn and progress at different rates, so a team can start off slow and end up being one of the best teams.  
  • What equipment do I need to play?  The only piece of equipment that you need to supply is cleats, baseball or football cleats are acceptable (Mouthpiece is recommended but not required).  You will receive a Reversible NFL Flag Jersey and a NFL Flag belt when you register and they are yours to keep.  You can wear any pair of shorts you want but NFL Flag prefers all shorts are solid dark colors and without pockets.  Its very important that your shorts do not match the color of your NFL Flag, yellow or green shorts are not allowed.
