The Westfield PAL has sponsored a flag football league since 1998. This program is restricted to participants ages 6-14 as of September 1st.  There are three separate divisions: Division III for grades 1-3, Division II for grades 4-6, and Division I for grades 7-9 for the school year starting in September.

All games are played at Tamaques Park in Westfield on Saturday mornings from early September until mid November. Division III plays from 8:30 AM until 10:00 AM. Division I and II play from 10:15 AM until 11:45 AM.  Volunteers and coaches are urged to participate. All coaches must undergo the required background checks.

Registration fee is $65.00 per player with a family limit of $195.00 from May 17th until August 1st. Registration fees after that are $85.00 per player. Registration closes on September 1st.  To register, please go to and click on the flag football link.

The league is non contact and instructional in nature. A routine Saturday morning consists of a 30 minute practice followed by a one hour game. All players play a ball handling position such as quarterback and/or receiver as there is no blocking/contact permitted. A pre-season mini camp is held on the first Saturday morning followed by a draft process for the Division I and II groups. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the flag football program we are unable to continue accepting any requests for team placements at the Division III (grades 1-3) level.

Prior to the start of the season, you will be contacted by a coach.
