This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.



Join a fast, fun, five-on-five youth flag football league for beginners. 
Flag football is no-contact sport that continues to increase in popularity. A group of dedicated volunteer coaches will work with your children to teach the basics of the game, teamwork and fun. Games will be held at McCarthy Park on Hospital Road.

NO GAME SCHEDULE FOR COLUMBUS DAY WEEKEND!


COACHES WANTED
Flag Football seeks two volunteers per team to serve as coaches. Coaches will be required to referee their games in a manner similar to MPR soccer and T-Ball leagues.


Contact Medfield Parks & Rec at medfieldpr@gmail.com if interested. For additional information, questions and/or concerns call the Pfaff Center at (508) 359-2715 or email medfieldpr@gmail.com.


Rosters will be constructed randomly in an effort to ensure parity (roughly equivalent levels of skill) between teams. As a result, requests for specific teams are not available for Flag Football.
