Girls' Flag Football
In partnership with the NYSPHSAA, Nike, and the NFL, Scarsdale HS and approximately 10 other school districts in Section One expect to pilot a Girls' Flag Football program during the spring 2022 season. While the details are currently being worked out, we expect the Section to provide 6 games for each school during the inaugural season. Roster sizes will approximate 15 players per team as the game is played 7 v 7 on a 30-yard x 70-yard field. In addition, a portion of the cost of uniforms and coaching staff will be covered through grants from Nike and the NFL. We are excited to be part of this pilot and to be able to provide this opportunity to girls who may not be playing a sport this spring.
We plan to begin on Monday, March 14, 2022. Competitions will begin on April 18 and should end by Memorial Day.
