Will we be playing other towns? Yes, the plan is to play Wilton teams for the first few weeks then have a couple Jamborees with other towns.
What time and day will the practices be? Our plan is to work around other sports the best we can and have our practices on different days than other sports most common practice day. Officially the Coaches will choose their own practice day and the time is usually a one hour practice between 6pm and 7pm. Some coaches will do 90 minute practices and the practices can range from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. We have a link that breaks down our exact practice and game day times as we hear the details from other sports about their practices and game times.
What time will the games be on Saturdays? We try not to have a game earlier than 9am and no later than a 1pm start. We will do our best to adjust our game times around other sports so our players can do more than one sport without having to race from one field to another.
Do I have to be a Wilton resident to play? Yes, this league is for Wilton residents only. However we will allow a non Wilton resident as long as their town does not have a flag program and as room allows in our Wilton program.
Can I choose a specific coach, team or friend to play with? No, all teams are drafted based on preferred practice days and player evaluation history. However you can request that a certain coach draft your child, you can also request the same practice day for your child and your friends child. There is no guarantee that you will be on a specific team, but your odds increase if your preferred coach practices on your preferred practice day.
Will all teams be perfectly balanced? No, our goal will be to balance the teams the best we can. However a perfectly balanced team is almost impossible because a teams success can be based on a coaches knowledge and skills as much as a players abilities and potential. All players learn and progress at different rates, so a team can start off slow and end up being one of the best teams. Our goal is to have each team perfectly balanced with fun!
What equipment do I need to play? The only piece of equipment that you need to supply is a mouthpiece and cleats. You will receive a Reversible NFL Flag Jersey and a NFL Flag when you register. You can wear your own shorts but we prefer they are solid blue or black and without pockets. The shorts that you choose cannot match the color of your NFL Flag, yellow or green in any way.
