The league is scheduled to start April 23rd and runs through June 25th, this includes playoffs and dates set aside for weather cancelation reschedules.
Games take place Saturdays at Randall’s Island with start times available from 10 am to 4 pm. During sign up teams can select a range of preferred start times. We will work to get as many games as possible during your time range, but requests are not guaranteed. The spring fields are on the south end of the island and are accessible via the 103rd street pedestrian bridge from Manhattan.
Explaining the Division:
7v7 – 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 4 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.

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 agent players like yourself. 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 on the same team. Division preference can’t be guaranteed for free agent players.
