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: Approximately 11:00 am to 2:00 pm before the NFL season starts, and between approximately 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. 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.



  • 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


Co-ed: 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 under 30, 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.


Men's: Leagues will be divided into Competitve and Rec divisions if we have enough teams classify themselves into each division. Prizes will only be awarded in the Competitive division.




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.
