Started in 2014, The East Greenwich Flag Football League (EGFFL) is a non-profit 501c3 status organization for residents of the town of East Greenwich, Rhode Island. EGFFL is a part of the NFL Flag by USA Football program - the largest flag football program in the nation.
EGFFL provides boys and girls ages 5-14 with the opportunity to enjoy the exciting 5 vs. 5 sport in a safe and nurturing environment. As the NFL Flag program states and EGFFL coaches can affirm: "Players benefit by being physically active through non-contact, continuous action while learning the fundamentals of football, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship."
We are a co-ed league, both boys and girls on combined teams with six divisions of ages 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14 and Challenger.
We hold a combine in late June, then begin play the weekend after Labor Day and run thru the end of October. Playoffs run the first two weeks of November. For select players there is an All Star RI State Flag Tournament in mid-November
EGFFL is a one day a week commitment, practicing 45-60 minutes, then playing immediately after 45-60 minutes.
