This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.


Northborough/Southborough/Westborough Recreation Departments are offering a co-ed Flag Football league for Grades K-7.  This program is the perfect opportunity for a child to learn, or enhance, the fundamental skills of football in a safe and fun environment-with an emphasis on participation, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.

Grades K/1 will not have league play for this age group, it is instructional. Will meet Sundays, 6-7pm at Melican Middle School, taught by Marty Murphy.

Grades 2-7 will have practice on the first day of the session then games each week afterwards, see schedule below.
