Spring 2019 - Week 3 Update

Hey Toronto Flag Footballers!

This week was another difficult one for field conditions across the city.

Our Saturday games progressed as usual at North York Civic Soccer Fields, but the storms over the weekend led to Fieldstone’s games being moved at the last minute to the Downsview Park Soccer Dome.

All of our Sunday games were played with some fantastic finishes and lots of fun for all!

We didn’t have quite the same luck trying to move our Tuesday night JCC Chai division after the permits were canceled, but we will make up all JCC Chai missed games with sessions on Wednesdays June 5 and June 12 at Westmount Collegiate Institute.

Thank you to all of our players and families for being so understanding about some of the last minute changes this season.

We will always do our best to make sure that our games can be played, and strive to do everything in our power to make sure that all of our players have the flag football experience they deserve!

Let’s all hope the weather holds out for the rest of the season!

Now on to football…


49ers, 28 – Ravens, 27

The first half saw the 49ers open up a 14-0 lead early thanks to touchdowns by Zachary S. and Hamish E.

The Niners and Ravens then exchanged touchdowns, before Ravens’ QB Brett A. found Damon K. in the end zone for a 10-yard strike on the last play of the first half, cutting the halftime lead to 21-14.

Both defences stood tall in the second half, and the Niners took a 28-21 lead into the final five plays.

The Ravens were looking for magic—and they got it, thanks to another Brett A. touchdown, this time on the receiving end of a pass from Hudson D.

The Ravens could have elected to end the game tied at 28, but chose to try a two-point conversion to win the game. However, fantastic defence from the 49ers thwarted the Ravens’ two-point attempt, and ended their comeback hopes.

You can’t help but notice many parallels between this game and the 2013 Super Bowl!

  • Ravens vs. 49ers
  • Played in a dome
  • Both games ended on a goal-line stop
  • Beyoncé performing at half-time

But this time… It was the 49ers who got the last laugh!


David K., Rams #29, Sophomore Division

This week’s Player of the Week is David K. of the Rams!

David threw four touchdowns this weekend across two games, both of which were Rams victories!

By the end of the season, there is no doubt that we’ll be thinking of David as one of the greatest players to ever wear the Rams uniform.

Dickerson. Warner. Faulk. Gurley.



We had no teams approach us on Sunday to try to claim their Secret Mission reward.

The tournament was fantastic, the weather held off, and there was even a hot dog lunch!

Thanks for having us CYJ! We can’t wait to work with you again in the future.

Spring 2019 - Week 2 Update

Week Two of Spring 2019 came and went, and unfortunately, the week passed with all of our outdoor games cancelled/postponed.

Fortunately, we were able to secure some indoor space at Downsview Park to allow our Sunday teams the opportunity to play flag football this weekend!

We apologize to all of our Saturday and Tuesday players, and will do our best to reschedule the games!

Going forward – let’s all cross our fingers for some sunshine and warm weather so that we can be back at Fieldstone, North York Civic Fields, Northview Secondary School, and Woodvalley Field after the long weekend!

Player of The Week

Nathan L., Cardinals #71, Junior Division

This week’s TFFL Player of the Week is Nathan L. of the Cardinals!

Nathan did his best Kyler Murray impression, by throwing for 112 yards and 4 touchdowns, and added 6 flag pulls on defence in his team’s victory over the Giants.

Great job this week, Nathan!

TFFL Players Bond with Argonauts Running Back James Wilder, Jr. at Skills Clinic

Last night, 40 boys and girls from the Toronto Flag Football Spring League joined Argonauts Running Back James Wilder, Jr. for an evening of skills training and fun.

Wilder, who won the Grey Cup and Rookie of the Year in 2017 with the Argonauts, led the session with the help of our TFFL Staff Team.

The participants participated in exciting drills that taught passing, catching, flag pulling, rushing, and defence, which they will be sure to show off on the field on Sundays and Tuesdays!

The evening culminated in the final drill, called 1v1’s, where two champions were crowned and surprised with tickets and field passes to the Argonauts home opener on June 22 vs. the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Thank you James for an exciting evening! We are excited to work with you again in the future!
