Outdoor Co-ed and Men's leagues. Indoor Men's Leagues

We are your headquarters for flag football in Madison. We run Spring and Fall outdoor leagues and Fall and Winter indoor leagues every year.

 

Notes for 2018 Leagues

We have made a number of additions to our offerings for 2018. We now have both east and west side men's leagues on Mondays and Thursdays - east side being held at Demetral Field and west side at Elver Park. All of these leagues have a capacity of seven teams, so do not wait to sign up if you want to play. We will also be offering indoor leagues starting in the late Fall/early Winter of 2018 at GRB Academy in Windsor.

 

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

Fall Outdoor Leagues: Run approximately early August to mid-October. Co-ed games are played on Sundays - approximately 11:00 am to 3:00 pm before the NFL season starts, and between approximately 9:00 am and noon once the NFL season has started. The Men's leagues play on Monday or Thursday evenings. All of your games will be on the same night of the week.

Late Fall/Winter Leagues: These are held indoors on a turf field. Dimensions are smaller than our outdoor fields. The first session starts in late October.

 

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. Ladies may participate in men's leagues, however there are no co-ed rules
  • 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: 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 2018 men's leagues will most likely only have one division, as there is only one field available at each location. Fall Indoor leagues may be segmented into one Upper Division night and one Lower if teams are flexible in when they play.

 

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)
  • Sunday co-ed is held at Olin Park. Monday and Thursday men's leagues are at Demetral Field for the east side league and Elver Park for the west side league
  • Fall outdoor leagues run approximately early August to mid-October
  • The 2018 Late Fall/Winter leagues will be held at GRB Academy in Windsor. These leagues are open to females who wish to participate since we do not have any indoor co-ed leagues

 

Prizes and Other Benefits

  • Champions t-shirts will be awarded to the Co-ed Competitive and Men's Competitive divisions
  • Cash prizes or gift cards will be distributed as well based upon the number of teams that register
