Flag Schedule

The 2014 schedule will be released soon.

The 2013 schedule is listed below for informational purposes only.

- 12 A teams play games over 7 weeks. There are no bye weeks this year due to the even number of teams.
- 8 B teams play games over 7 weeks as well. Each team plays each other once.
- All teams play either 3 or 4 home games and travel to 3 or 4 away games. Organizations with teams at both levels will have their teams traveling or playing home together quite often, but it was not possible to do that every week.
- Milton Jamboree schedule will be out early next week. I believe all teams on this schedule with the exception of Winooski attend. Let me know if that is not correct
- Essex Jamboree is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, September 29th
- Night games at Essex are scheduled for Saturday, September 21st for B teams, and for September 14th and October 5th for A teams
- Barre typically plays Saturday morning and there are a couple conflicts with Saturday morning games, Jamborees, and Saturday Night Games. I'll leave that to Barre and the opposing team to determine how best to schedule games during those weeks.

Also, a couple other notes as reminders
- A 5-2 defense is mandatory with Line Backers lining up 3 yards off the line of scrimmage, Corners 5 yards off and Safeties 10.
- Because 5-2 is mandatory, offenses should not have schemes that take advantage (i.e. 3 receivers lining up on the same side of the field)
- Coaches should notify the other teams coaches about penalties/dangerous play/sportsmanship rather than talk directly with the other team's players

NVYFL Coaches Requirements

Below you will find the the mandatory coaching application form which must be completed and signed by all league coaches.

Coaches are required by the league to pass a Vermont records background check. It is free, however, it ONLY covers criminal convictions within the state of Vermont. A national record can be run through USA Football. The USA Football background check is $20 per coach for two years. The league commissioner is notified anything within that two years if the person is convicted of anything within the United States.

Pursuant to changes made to Title 20, Chapter 117, Section 2056(c) during the 2007 - 2008 legislative session, a person may obtain from the Vermont Criminal Information Center (VCIC) a criminal conviction record for any purpose provided the requestor has filed a user agreement with VCIC. This means that the conviction records on file at VCIC will be open and available to the public effective July 1, 2008. Please note that the procedures described herein apply only to Vermont criminal conviction searches and not to national record checks acquired from the FBI.

To perform the VCIC background check you must log in using the league administrative code for this process to be free. Please email Kerri at to get the login and password to this website

You must have the coach's full name, any alias and their date of birth.
