League Dates: The season starts up Tuesday, September 13th and runs through Thursday, November 17th, including playoff and rainout dates.
Location and Times: Our weeknight league takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Randall’s Island Field 70 (walking distance from the upper east side) with start times at 9 PM and 10 PM. Teams will normally play only one day of the week, double headers when necessary. Teams will see games either night throughout the season but we will work to get as many games as possible on your preferred day.
Free agent sign ups –
Solo players or small groups without a full team can sign up as Free Agent players. You will either be added to a team looking to round out their roster or added to a team of free agents and small groups. If you are signing up with a friend or small group you’ll be able to include that information during sign up to make sure we place you both/all on the same team.
5v5 Key Points – All players are eligible receiver. We do not allow contact blocking. Similar to basketball, you work to establish a position to where the opposing player has to go around you to get to the ball. You must have 3 offensive players on the line of scrimmage to have a legal formation and the QB must take the snap directly behind the center in a shotgun formation. To be successful team usually work in short passes, trick plays, laterals and pitches. A direct run game is difficult as you are not allowed to block.
