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:
8v8 – Each team has three down lineman. All players on the field can catch passes including lineman. Defensive lineman need to start down but aren’t required to rush. We allow open hand contact blocking that must be above the waist and below the neck. You must be facing the person you are blocking as we do not allow blocks to the back or side. QB’s may take the snap under center and a running game is often used to compliment the passing game.

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.
