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 4 pm, and Wednesdays from 6:30 - 9:30 pm. Men's league games are played on Monday and Wednesday 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. Wednesday co-ed is played from 6:30 - 9:30 pm. Men's league games are played on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.

Late Fall/Winter Indoor Leagues: We do not anticipate being able to run indoor leagues for Fall/Winter 2019/2020. The facility does not have much availability.

 

Scheduling

Since it is asked all the time: Scheduels are posted a few days after registration closes. If you signed up for Monday nights, your team plays on Mondays nights. The time is irrelevant.

 

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
  • 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 5:00 pm. If you are considering a weekday league, do not wait until the last minute to register if you want to play.

 

Divisions

 

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 fewer divsions. We define our divisions in the following manner:

  • 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
  • Recreational: Historically, we had far more teams sign up for Rec than any other division, and there were still extremely lopsided games within the Rec division. For this reason, we offer two levels of Rec. These divisions may be condensed into one if not enough teams register for each
    • Lower Recreational: Teams who are newer to organized football with low skill or understanding of football strategy
    • Upper Recreational: These teams have likely played together before and most likely have at least a few players with decent skill and understanding of the game. However, the team as a whole would not do well in Intermediate

 

Men's: The Monday league will be segmented into Competitive and Rec divisions if space allows and we have enough teams register in each division. The Wednesday league has a capacity of seven teams, and all teams will be in the same division.

 

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 or fewer divisions than originally offered.

 

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.
