Spring and Fall Co-ed and Men's Leagues

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


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

Fall Leagues: Run approximately early August to mid-October. Co-ed games are played on Sundays: 11:00 am to 2:00 pm before the NFL season starts, and between 9:00 am and noon once the NFL season has started. The Men's League plays on Monday or Thursday evenings. All of your games will be on the same night of the week.


Don’t have a team? You can sign up as an Individual and MSSC will place you on a team (if we have room). 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 on the Registration Form.



  • 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.


Choose Your Skill Level


In the Spring and Fall Co-ed League, there are three separate divisions: Recreational, Intermediate, and Competitve. Teams self-select their division, subject to approval by MSSC. In general, if your team is full of a bunch of good athletes in their mid-20s, you should probably be in the Competitive Division. If your team is here to win and is going to take the games seriously, argue with refs, and talk strategy and design plays all game, you're probably a Competitive team. If you're just here to have fun, drink a beer after the game, and don't know what a crossing route is, your team probably belongs in the Rec Division. If you're somewhere between those two, sign up for Intermediate.


The Men's Leagues will be divided into Competitve and Rec Divisions if we have enough teams classify themselves into each division.


Dates and Locations

  • Spring leagues generally run from late April to early July (weather permitting).
  • Fall leagues run approximately early August to mid-October.
  • The 2015 locations are Olbrich Park (Fall Co-ed) and Elvehjem Park (Fall Men's)


Prizes and Other Benefits

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


For complete details, please download the Rulebook linked in the grey bar at the top of this page. When you're ready to sign up, click the "Team" or "Individual" button below, or click "Learn More" for the full details on dates, times, locations, etc.


A note for males registering as Individuals in the Co-ed League: We typically are not able to place males who register as Individuals, simply because there are always far more males than females who sign up. Individuals will be placed in the order they register if we can accomodate them, so be sure to sign up early for the best chance at being placed on a team (or help us recruit some ladies!)
