Play Football In Boston


Football Leagues Overview

Football season never ends with BSSC’s Coed & Men’s adult flag football leagues. Outdoor leagues run from March til November with new leagues starting every month at convenient locations in Brighton, Fenway, Medford, Newton, South Boston, and Winchester. Indoor leagues run November to April in Winchester.

All football games are played on well-maintained, high-quality turf fields with official referees. All teams and individuals are welcome. No previous experience is necessary, and we encourage men and women of all skill levels to join. Act quickly, however, because league space for this popular sport is always in high demand!

If you love football come out and join in the fun! Don’t let the Patriots be the only ones playing in the area. Give us a call or send us a message if you’re ready to sign up or have any questions.

Things to know

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of cleats can I wear?

Because we play on all artificial turf fields, we do not allow the use of metal spikes (aka “soft ground” cleats).  All “firm ground,” turf cleats, indoor soccer shoes and running shoes are acceptable and appropriate options.

What if the weather is bad – When will you cancel my game?

You should always be ready to play! Cancellations depend upon the playability of a field, the risk of lightning, and/or an edict of the permitting authority – not whether it is raining or snowing. We use a lot of turf or synthetic grass fields, so games are rarely cancelled. In general, Softball & Kickball games are not cancelled until fields become “unplayable”. In winter, snow may dictate cancellations due to school closings, un-plowed parking lots, or if overall conditions become problematic.

Because conditions & weather can change quickly in New England, we make updates as necessary (24/7). We suggest you check before heading out to your league. Cancellations are posted in the following manner:
Phone: 617.789.4070, ext. 700

What if I don’t have a team?

BSSC specializes in putting individuals together for teams. We will place you on a team of players who have all signed up individually or find you an existing team. Be sure to complete registration with payment. If we place you on an existing team, your fees will be refunded and you’ll pay the captain directly.

I played in school – Will I find BSSC leagues competitive?

BSSC offers all levels of competition. For most sports, multiple levels are available within the same league. Advanced to low intermediate divisions are often specified for popular leagues like Soccer, Softball, Football, and Volleyball. Speak with the BSSC program manager about your sport for help finding the best match for your skills and experience.

How can I play with friends? (What if I have a partial team?)

Register as an individual player and put the name of your friend(s) in the “teammate request” field. Choose one main person from your group and have everyone put that name in “teammate request”. As long as everyone registers at the same time, and we have space, we will honor your request. If you have a partial team, please contact the sports manager in case you can combine with another partial team.

What are the sign-up deadlines for sports?

All BSSC leagues and clinics are first-come/first-serve. Teams in existing leagues are given until one month prior to commit to returning to play the next session before we accept new teams. Some leagues sell out 5-6 weeks in advance, so we recommend that teams and individuals register as soon as you know you can play. On the other hand, there might be space as late as the league’s start date, so give us a call.
