Needham Flag Football League is a non-profit Fall Football League for Grades K-8 in conjunction with the National Football League. We are a member of the NFL Flag Program and games will be played with modified NFL Flag Football Rules. The League is open to both boys and girls in Grades K-8. Each player who is placed on a team will receive a reversible jersey with NFL team colors and logos and a set of NFL flags. We are an established non profit league with money donated back to youth programs and services.
Fall 2021 Games will be on Sundays starting September 12 and will continue until November 7th with a Championship Game on November 8th. There will be an optional clinic on Labor Day. Games are approximately 1 hour with first games starting at 9:15 and last games starting at 3:00. Earlier grades typically play earlier in the day. We will not have schedules until August.
