4/23- We will attempt to play ALL games as scheduled!!
Turf fields are obviously 100% fine! Cantiague, Field of Dreams, Roslyn HS, & Commack Middle are all 100% playing.
Grass fields should be OK. The fields have been very dry so they’ve absorbed a lot of water. The Grass Field referees will make every effort to get these games in
as well! If any grass fields are unplayable we’ll contact the affected teams via email. We should be ok though.
The NFL FLAG Program along with the Long Island Flag Football League will once again for our 30th year offer zero-contact NFL Flag for boys & girls TEAMS, in separate divisions, ages 5-17 years old at fields across Nassau County the Town of Oyster Bay. Last year’s program was a huge success with over 265 teams and over 3000 participants learning & enjoying Flag Football in a safe, NO CONTACT format. All games last one(1) hour and are played on Sundays sometime between 9AM-5PM beginning March 5th, at fields closest to where your team lives. The team fee is $1900 and that covers up to 11 players. You can choose to have under 11 players but the fee is still $1900 for the team. Each child you add over the original 11 player fee is an additional $170 per player. You may assemble a team of whomever you like…..existing sports teams…friends…classmates. It’s your team. We will have Free Agents(unaffiliated with any team) for you to choose from should you need additional players to fill out your roster. If your child does not have a team please read info at bottom of this page regarding Free Agents. NYS certified H.S. football officials are used and alternate play-dates are available for any Sunday game that conflict with religious holidays. There is ZERO blocking in flag football so it doesn’t require week-night practices that infringe upon a student’s homework/study time. There are six regular season games followed by play-offs(everyone makes the playoffs) and a Super Bowl. The season kicks-off Sunday March 5th. This program is not affiliated with any school districts. Cut-off date for Registration is February 22nd. The divisions are : 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, 14, & 17U. Your team’s correct division is based on your players ages as of 12/31/22.
The price per team is $1900 ($1976 if using PayPal due to fees). Each team receives NFL FLAG jerseys, flag belts, and balls. To register your team, just mail your Coach Contact Info, Division desired, a roster of players with emails, and your check to(made out to “LIFFL”): LIFFL, PO BOX 518, BETHPAGE, NY 11714.
