The New Canaan Flag Football League is a program managed and run by the New Canaan Recreation Department and volunteer parents. League rules and guidelines are set by the National Football League (NFL) as part of the NFL Flag program offered throughout the United States. The New Canaan Flag Football League will offer three -age restricted programs to New Canaan residents in the Fall of each year.
Grade 2-3 Division
Players must be entering either grade 2 or grade 3 for the school year of 2016-2017
Grade 4-6 Division
Players must be entering either grade 4, grade 5 or grade 6 for the school year of 2016-2017
Grade 7-9 Division
Players must be entering either grade 7 or grade 8 for the school year of 2016-2017
Pre-Season Player Skill Evaluations
All players must be evaluated for team placement prior to the season start. We have created a pre-season Flag Football Camp August 15-19 for players to attend. The registration fee will be discounted for all Fall NCFFL registered players.
Team Draft Selection
The League Supervisor will manage a draft of equal strength teams through special rules and guidelines. Parents may not make requests for team, coach or friend assignments.
Because of the highly technical process of determining balanced team rosters, it is expected players will maintain this program as 'first priority" when scheduling among the other fall activities. Your team will be at a clear disadvantage during the games when you are not present.
