Our Mission
Georgetown Youth Flag Football League (GYFFL) was founded in 2007 by Scott MacDonald to provide an avenue for our boys and girls to have fun while learning and understanding the various skills specific to football, the importance of teamwork and the necessity of sportsmanship. The organization provides a safe, non-contact variety of football to teach the fundamentals of the sport and perhaps serve as the impetus for some players to go on to play full football at the youth and/or high school levels.

Our Affiliations
The GYFFL affiliates all players, coaches, and administrators with the Georgetown Athletic Association (GAA). In addition, as a result of registering for our league, each player and coach is affiliated with NFL Flag program powered by USA Football. NFL Flag is a program of NFL Play – The NFL movement for an active generation.

The GYFFL program is also affiliated with the Georgetown Middle High School football program. GYFFL players will have the opportunity toin high school varsity games during halftime, serve as honorary water girls/boys and participate in other interactive programs that involve high school team members serving as instructors, workload permitting.

C Division (Co-Directors: Mike Paglia and Brian King)
Our players going into 2nd and 3rd grade, participate in a weekly clinic that includes group warm-ups, instructional skills and drills covering basic fundamentals, followed by a team warm-up and game. The score of games is not recorded, so there are no standings or playoffs. The focus of this age level is to further player development by building on previously learned skills and introducing additional aspects of the game. Practices are typically run in a group format for the entire age level using a rotating “stations” approach.  Throuoghout the season this will transition to team time to practice offensive plays, etc.  Mouthpiece required. Cleats highly recommended.  NFL style jersey and flag belt provided.

Ages: 7 & 8 (2nd and 3rd Grade Boys and Girls)

Practice/Games: Wednesdays 6-8pm (starting Wednesday, September 15th, 2021) at Georgetown Middle/High School Turf Field.  Days/times subject to change due to field restrictions.

B Division (Co-Directors: David Twiss and Pete Lucido)
For players going into 4th and 5th grade, participate in a weekly competitive league game as well as separate weekly training sessions. Although game scores are kept, the focus of this age level is to further player development by continuing to build on previously learned skills and introducing more of the finer points of the game. Coaches are instructed to give players exposure and experience to most positions on both offense and defense whenever possible. Practices are typically run in a team format to allow the team to learn to call and run plays without the coaches assistance. Games allow for the players to become independent while on the field executing plays based on coaches instruction from the sidelines.  Playoffs are held at the conclusion of the regular season and a B Division champion is crowned.   Mouthpiece required. Cleats highly recommended.  NFL style jersey and flag belt provided.

Ages: 9 & 10 (4th and 5th Grade Boys and Girls)
