About Us

                                                   
 Wilton Youth Football


Is part of a 7 town Tackle, Flag & Cheer football program which includes Darien, Fairfield, New Canaan, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Westport, and Wilton, known as the Fairfield County Football League (FCFL).  The objective of Wilton Youth Football is to teach our young athletes life and motivational skills. Participating in organized sports will instill in every child the importance of sportsmanship, physical fitness, goal setting/achievement and most importantly teamwork. 

We offer recreational and competitive Tackle & Flag football for boys and girls aged between 3 & 18 in the Spring Summer & Fall seasons.  Our Tackle Program offers co-ed full contact and modified contact football starting in 3rd grade all the way through 8th grade.  Our Flag Program offers 
non-contact co-ed, 5v5 Flag Football for kindergartners all the way through 12th grade. 

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

The athletic trainer and all coaches are to be aware of oncoming inclement weather.  If a coach sees a flash of lightning, he is to notify the athletic trainer immediately.  A flash-to-bang count of 30 seconds or less should be used as the minimal determinant of when to suspend activities- all athletes and coaches are to be removed from the field and seek shelter indoors or under the bleachers.  Lightning safety strategies include avoiding shelter under trees and avoiding open fields and spaces.  Waiting 30 minutes after the last flash of lightning or sound of thunder is recommended before athletic or recreational activities are resumed.  The athletic trainer will notify coaches when it is safe to return to play.

Flash-to-Bang Method:  Begin counting seconds after a flash of lightning is seen. Stop counting when thunder is heard.  Divide this count by 5 to determine the distance of the lightning (in miles).  For example, a flash-to-bang count of 30 seconds equates to a distance of 6 miles (National Athletic Trainers’ Association Position Statement: Lightning Safety for Athletics and Recreation).
