Football in the snow is a WNY pastime

All you need are warm clothes and an ability to not care about mud and/or snow.  While not required, cleats are recommended 


We'll be meeting at the grass area next to the back corner of the parking at 500 Wheatfield Street in North Tonawanda. (The DMV building that we affectionately call "The 500")  

WEATHER PERMITTING - Please understand that field conditions will be unpredictable and we will always take every precaution to keep the kids safe. However, being cold and getting snowy or muddy is not deemed as unsafe in our books. 

Masks are mandatory during all play!

All equipment will be meticulously cleaned according to our flag football C-19 protocol. 

Our enthusiastic and dedicated REC Staff will be on hand to organize and split the kids up into teams. (We can not guarantee friends or even siblings will play on the same team). Each week teams will be different allowing for kids to socialize with many old and new friends. 

REC staff will also serve as all-time quarterbacks.

We can run up to 3 games at one time so there's plenty of opportunity for play.  Our league flag football rules will "loosely" apply. There won't be a game clock and the score will be kept in our heads. (it is pick-up play after all)


Once we have established an interest, we hope to set up a league for competitive play.

We are requiring online registrations for each session to ensure numbers are manageable and Covid-19 Waivers are signed.
