Condolences to the Bryant Family

It’s with a heavy heart we regret to inform the HEWYBL family on the passing of Stephen Bryant. Steve was actively involved with HEWYBL serving as a coach, a division head, and for the last several years as our VP of Basketball. In that same time Steve was an integral part in the launching and promoting of the Girl’s Division of basketball.

Steve was simply the definition of a good man who was a role model and mentor to so many of us who were lucky to have known him. He truly cared about our children and served the community selflessly. His impact on HEWYBL and youth sports will be felt for years to come.

The family has requested, that in lieu of flowers and baskets, that you send any love condolence gifts to the Bryant home at 4 Pennington Road, East Windsor, NU 08520 for the purchase of the gravestone.

Babe Ruth Registration Open for the 2021 Season

The spring season is for ages 13-15 years old on the 60/90 field and is open to players from Millstone, Roosevelt, Upper Freehold, Allentown, Robbinsville, East Windsor, and Hightstown.

 Please register on line at Western Monmouth - Mercer East Registration @ HEWYBL 

Registration Details:

Registration Deadline is March 20.  After March 20, a late fee will apply.   For this season, we will have a flat registration fee per player and we have kept that fee the same as the last few years.  

 Registration fee - $250  

  • Late Fee of $20 starts on March 20.
  • Note:  Players receive full uniform that includes jersey, pants, belt, and cap.

 Season Details:

Of course there are still some uncertainties regarding the Covid-19 situation.   At this time, we anticipate the season will start in Mid to Late April and conclude by the first or second weekend in June followed by All-Stars in late June or July.  The start date could of course change pending school or league situations.

  • For this season, we intend to play Friday night games until mid-May when school ball will conclude.  This should hopefully ease commitments for families.  
  • Then we will move to two games per week later in May through the end of the season. 
  • We will play in-house games along with some interleague games against other leagues (TBD pending Covid-19 restrictions in NJ and within the Babe Ruth District).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Steve Burd at or Bill Zolnowski  at  .

Spring Flag Football Details

Dear HEWYBL Flag Football Families:

Registration is now open for the HEWYBL’s 2021 spring flag football season.  Our league is open to both GIRLS and BOYS ages 4-18.  All games are played in East Windsor.

Please register on line at   Select REGISTER at the upper right-hand corner of the screen and follow the instructions.


We will be following state guidelines for return to sports at the time the season starts. This may include temperature checks, mask-wearing on the sideline and limited fan attendance.  If following the guidelines will be an issue for you, please do not sign up.  We will have hand sanitizer available for players and coaches.

Registration Details:

  • Registration begins January 25
  • Registration closes March 15

Please note: We will not collect payments until March 1, but you can register before that date.

Divisions and Costs:

Freshman (4-5 years old as of January 1, 2021) -- $85

Sophomore (6-8 years old as of January 1, 2021) -- $150

JV (9-11 years old as of January 1, 2021) -- $160

Varsity (12-14 years old as of January 1, 2021) -- $160

Sr. Varsity (15-17 years old as of January 1, 2021) -- $100

Evaluations, Player Draft and Season:

Freshman:  This division runs as part-clinic and part-game as the coaches teach kids the most basic fundamentals of flag football. For this division, there is not evaluation and not player draft.

Sophomre, JV and Varsity: In order to prevent any more intermingling than necessary, we will form teams made up of players from their school. We will not hold our tradition pre-season player evaluation session this season. All siblings in the same age group will be placed on the same team.

Each team may have up to two coaches, and each coach will automatically have his or her child on their team.

Senior Varsity: This is set up as a more competitive division.  If you are in the Senior Varsity division (15-18 years old), and have a group of friends or teammates from your high school that would like to form a team, please reach out to me at and we will place you on the same team.  Players in Senior Varsity may also sign up as “free agents” and will be assigned to one of the Senior Varsity teams.

HEWYBL flag football typically draws players from Allentown, Cranbury, East Windsor, Hamilton, Hightstown, Millstone, Robbinsville, Roosevelt, West Windsor and other surrounding towns.

Game Schedule

Games will on April 10 and will run through the championship games on June 13.  We will not play on Memorial Day Weekend.The game schedule will depend on how many players sign up, but in general, here is what to expect. 

Freshmen play on Saturday at 10 a.m.  There are no practices.

Sophomore, JV and Varsity will play each Saturday – Varsity at 9 a.m., JV at 10 & 11 a.m. and Sophomore at 11 a.m. & Noon   Starting in May, teams in these divisions will also play one weeknight game per week at 6 or 7 p.m. Sophomore will play on Tuesday, JV on Wednesday and Varsity on Thursday.  Teams typically practice once per week for an hour to an hour-and-a half at a place and time decided by the coach.

Senior Varsity plays only on Sunday evenings.

Playoff games will be held on June 5-6 and June 12-13.  


HEWYBL will provide each player with a set of sonic-pop flags, an NFL Flag team jersey and NFL Flag shorts.  You need to provide a mouth guard (players may not participate without one) and cleats (no metal cleats are permitted). Receiver’s gloves are acceptable, but not required.


HEWYBL is a non-profit organization run 100 percent by volunteers.  If you can help with coaching or player evaluations, please note that on your registration and/or email

Coaches Clinic:

We will not have the tradition Coaches Clinic this season, but we will provide coaches with a number of resources – sample plays, practice plans, drills, etc. to help prepare any new coaches.  I am also available to answer any questions or give any advice gleaned from my coaching experience over the years.

If you have any questions about HEWYBL Flag Football or the upcoming season, please do not hesitate to contact me at .

Concussion Awareness Training

As many of you know, HEWYBL requires all coaches to take the Online Consussion Training offered by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).  We are now rolling this awareness program to parents/guardians of our youth athletes. Attached is a link for the Concussions Awareness Fact Sheet which all should review.  This Fact Sheet is also located in our Documents tab from the Home Page.  The Online Concussion Training is required for coaches and recommended for parents and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion.  The free course takes only 30 minutes to complete and keeps our children safe.
