Flag Football

TriTown Flag Football Spring 2020 Season Cancelled

Governor Baker has directed additional steps to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19, including keeping schools closed through the end of the school year.  New England Flag Football has consecutively ran 15 successful spring seasons, however, we regret to inform you that we, as an organization, have made the decision to cancel the 16th New England Flag Football spring season. This was not an easy decision, but the safety of our players and their families is our priority. 

We look forward to resuming Flag activities in September for the Fall 2020 Season.

More information of the Fall season will be provided after clarity on school schedules and field access from State and Town officials.

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
