Football Home

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 Play60 – 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 to play exhibition games during halftime of home varsity games, serve as honorary water girls/boys and participate in other interactive programs that involve high school team members serving as instructors.

Our Season
The GYFFL operates from September through late November. Registration for our season typically opens in mid-summer .

Eligibility
All boys and girls ages who are at least 5 years old to younger than 14 years old on September 1.  Must live in Georgetown, attend Georgetown Schools or have a parent/guardian that lives in Georgetown.  Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.

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.   Mouthpeice required.
