Flag Football is a fun and rapidly growing sport that introduces players to the fundamentals of football in a non-contact format.
Boxford children participate in the TriTown Division of the North Shore Flag Football League.
Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 will be the 12th and 13th seasons of Flag Football in Boxford.
Boys and Girls ages 4-15 are eligible to play and are placed in age groups on teams with a maximum of 10 players to guarantee playing time.
Current age groups are: 4 year old – U6 – U8 – U10 – U12 and U15. Age is determined by the player’s age as of April 1st for the spring season, Aug 1st for the fall season
Players registering from Boxford will be placed on teams that primarily include other Boxford children and may also include players Middleton and/or Topsfield.
Currently games are played on Saturday afternoons usually between 1pm – 6pm at either Spofford Pond or the Boxford Common.
Each season is 6-7 weeks long. Teams usually have a 30 min practice before their game. Each game consists of two 20 min halves.
So 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 www.northshoreflagfootball.com in the Tritown sections.
