Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Wilton Flag Football Program:
Is Wilton Flag Football League Co-ed? Yes, both boys and girls will be on the same team. We also do have a Girls Only Flag Football League.
When will the Fall Season Start? The Fall season will officially start the week of September 4th.
When will the first Fall game be held? The first game of the season will be Saturday September 8th.
When will the Fall Season End? The last game of the season will be help on Saturday November 10th.
Will we be playing other towns? Yes, the plan is to play our own Wilton teams for the first few weeks then have a couple Jamborees with other towns.
What time and day will the practices be? We will have a 90 minute progressive practice every Friday from 6pm to 7:30pm at Middlebrook. Some divisions could practice on Wednesday depending on player and Coaching conflicts. All players and coaches will practice on the same day and time so we can maximize our teaching efforts on the fundamentals of Flag Football. Each practice our players will split into 3 groups Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. That way we can focus on each players development and make sure everyone progresses at their own pace. All Head Coaches will have 60 minutes before every game on Saturday to work individually with their team. They will also have 30 minutes after every Friday night practice to work individually with their team.
What time will the games be on Saturdays? We will try not to have a game earlier than 10am and no later than a 5pm 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.
