Because we are a FFWCT sanctioned tour, we are required to use the following division breakdowns. For teams, you must play in the division that your oldest player falls into. For more information, see our Rules page.
6U - Birth Year 2011, 2012
8U - Birth Year 2009, 2010
10U - Birth Year 2007, 2008
12U - Birth Year 2005, 2006

The age cutoff is January 1st,so your age for this event is the year you were born. Players may play up one division, but cannot play down. Proof of age will be required prior to the event.
Example: A player born April 14, 2011 would be a 6U player, but could elect to play 8U. A player born October 5, 2006 would be a 12U player, but could elect to play 14U.
Adult Rec - 18+
Adult Pro - 18+ - There will be no Adult Pro division for this year.

Getting involved in the New England Autumn Classic is easy, and can be done as a team or as a free agent (youth only). Please note that youth free agent registration closes on October 26th!
Want to put your own full team in?
Perfect - all it takes is a $50 deposit to lock you in! Assemble a team full of your friends, come up with a team name, and register on this site! Since the format is 5v5, you only need five players to register (though most teams will have between 8 and 10 so the players can get a breather)!
Team Registration requires that you enter all players at once as a team. Put together a team from your neighborhood! Grab a handful of players from your town organization!
Then come up with a creative team name (which, let's be honest, is half the fun), and register HERE.
Our event is a great opportunity to put teams together of athletes from different towns, or different schools, or even siblings and cousins, to play in a fun and festive atmosphere.
Don't have jerseys or flags? No problem! We can help, and you just need to indicate this during registration.
Don't have a team but still want in?
No problem! We offer Youth Free Agent registration, where you can sign up as an individual to be placed on a team. Your individual Free Agent registration includes a jersey and a set of flags, and we'll do our best to place your child with kids from his or her area - and they'll always be in the appropriate age division.
To register as an individual, please click HERE.
We are proud and excited to be the only qualifying tournament in New England that will send teams to the 2019 Flag Football National Championships in Orlando, Florida.
Teams winning their division at the 2018 New England Autumn Classic will receive one half bid to the National Championships, which take place on January 19-20, 2019. All teams must provide their own transportation and book lodging at an official tournament hotel. Youth teams must pay the $200 registration fee to register their team (Vitality Sports will pay the other $200, or the "half bid"). Adult teams will get the full bid paid for.
A Vitality Sports representative will be in touch with the winning coaches upon completion of the event. Teams that win their division at the 2018 New England Autumn Classic have one week to declare their intention to attend the 2019 Flag Football National Championships. If any winning team is not able to attend, Vitality Sports reserves the right to move on to the second place team, and so on.
