Registration is now open for Wilton's 2018 Spring Flag Football Program. The Spring Season will start on April 16th and ends on June 16th, which is a 9 week season with 9 games scheduled to play. This will be our first FULL season of Flag Football in the Spring, our practices and games will both be held at Middlebrook Field. This will also be the first time we are offering Flag Football for 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. We will now have 6 Flag Football divisions, however each division is pending based on the number of players and coaches that register.
Our Wilton Flag Football League believes all student athletes should play multiple sports each season. We will do our best to adjust our practice times and game times to fit your childs schedule so they can play 2 or 3 sports with little to no conflicts.
Our Flag Website has been updated and we have created an FAQ page for the Spring Flag Football season to help answer any questions you might have. Stay tuned for more updates, email the Wilton Flag Football Commissioner if you have any questions:
Registration for Fall Flag Football will open in June.

Hello Wilton Flag Football Families,
Our Spring Flag Football Season starts in about 1 month and so far our registration looks great considering this is our very first Spring Season for Flag Football. I have pushed back the $50 late fee one more week so everyone has until March 19th to avoid the late fee for Spring Flag Football registration. If you know of any friends that are considering playing Flag Football this Spring let them know they have until Sunday night to avoid the late fee and have them contact me if they have any questions.
Below are the details of each grade including the current volunteer coaches. Our goal is to have a minimum of 28 players and a minimum of 8 coaches for each division. We have a little over 30 days to reach our registration goals and we need everyone’s help to get it done. For those divisions that are a little short on registrations we can create 4 teams with just 20 players and get by with at least 4 coaches if needed. If you would like to Coach Flag Football this season contact me and I can add you to the list and answer any questions you might have.
Again my promise to the parents and players is that we will make sure that our practice times and game times do not interfere with other sports. We support student athletes playing multiple sports and we will do everything we can to make sure they can fit Spring Flag Football into their Spring sports schedule.
Here are some of the important upcoming dates, on March 30th we plan to have a coaches meeting at Comstock @ 7pm. On March 31st we plan to have a Free QB, RB & WR clinic for all Spring Flag Football registered players at Middlebrook Time TBD. On April 2nd we plan to have a parents meeting at Comstock @ 7pm. Then on April 6th we plan to have our Flag Football Draft with all of the Head Coaches. Check our website for all of the upcoming Important dates.
1st/2nd Grade Division currently has 26 registered players and 4 volunteer coaches (Gemelli, Capalbo, Brindley, Kaiser). We are 2 players short of our goal and 4 volunteer coaches short of our goal. You can check the list of player names on our Flag Website, if you don’t see your name on the roster let me know. Also if you want to be added to the volunteer coaches list let me know.
3rd/4th Grade Division currently has 18 registered players and 3 volunteer coaches (Jagetic, Condon, Katz). We are 10 players short and 5 volunteer coaches short of our goal. We could create 4 teams with just 20 players and we could get by with just 4 volunteer coaches. That means we are just 2 players short and 1 volunteer coach short.
5th/6th Grade Division currently has 17 registered players and 2 coaches (Jackowski, Santosky). We are 11 players short and 6 volunteer coaches short of our goal. We could create 4 teams with just 20 players and we could get by with just 4 volunteer coaches. That means we are just 3 players short and 2 volunteer coaches short.
7th/8th Grade Division currently has 1 registered players and zero volunteer coaches. This division is not looking good but we will do our best to get these players on a team this Spring.
9th/10th11th/12th Grade Division currently has 4 registered players and 1 volunteer coach (Marty Zoruba). This is our first High School Division and I am hoping for at least 10 to 14 players so we can have 2 teams and put together a tournament for this division.
Contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Hello Wilton Flag Football Families,
So far so good, we have hit 50 registered players for our 1st Spring Flag Football League. Each team will have 5 to 7 players on it so we can have little to no players on the sideline for each game.
I have been keeping a close eye on the practice/game days and times of other sports to make sure that we dont have any conflicts. If you have any updated information on other sports practices/games times please let me know. I have posted what I know so far on the website and I will continue to update that link as we get closer to the season.
We still have 2 months until the Spring Flag Football Season officially starts, our goal is to have over 100 players registered with 2 coaches for every team. If you know any players that might be interested in joining us, give them our website or have them email me directly if they have any questions.
If you are interested in coaching this Spring season, send me an email and we can discuss the details of what is expected. We will have a few coaches meetings over the next couple months to discuss our flag rules and the draft procedure etc.
I have updated our website (Important Dates) to have our first Parent meeting. The plan is to have it at the Comstock Community Center a couple weeks before the season starts so we can answer any questions that you might have in person.
Of course you can contact me anytime if you have any questions or concerns. Our goal is to have the Wilton Flag Football Program be the very best in Connecticut. We can only achieve this goal with great volunteer help from our Wilton parents. Our kids deserve the best experience playing youth sports, lets make sure we give it to them!
