Boxford children participate in the

TriTown Division of the

North Shore Flag Football League. 

  • Players registering from Boxford will be placed on teams that primarily include other Boxford children and may also include players Middleton and/or Topsfield.
  • Each season is 7 weeks long. Teams usually have a 30 min practice before their game. Each game consists of two 20 min halves.
  • So the weekly time commitment is about 1.5hrs per week and most children participate in Flag Football in addition to their primary Fall  or Spring Sport.


More information on the league and registration is available at in the Tritown sections
