Splitting Up Teams:

If there are more than 10 players to register for their grade level, teams will be split up as followed:

Players in 4th grade will be placed on rosters for the school they attend. If necessary, players from schools in close geographical proximity will be placed together to fulfill roster requirements. Players from private schools or those who home school are placed on the roster of the public school they would otherwise attend.  

Players in grades 5-8 will be evenly split by coaches after the first day of practice. 


After the August 1st Registration Deadline, a bulk order with the NFL Flag Football League will be placed to order jerseys and equipment for teams. Jersey sizes will be ordered based on the size of jersey that was entered for your child at time of registering through the Middleton Registration System. 

All players must wear a protective mouthpiece.

Friend Requests:

Players can make one friend request, (that friend must also request you) multiple friend requests cannot be guaranteed to be granted.
