2017 Pit Bull Football
The GFA participates in the Mid Maryland Pit Bull program for players ages 5-6 as of July 31, 2017. All players must be 5 yrs of age...No Exceptions. Our goal remains the same: to introduce our youngest players to the basic fundamentals of football without the rigorous schedule of the other GFA travel teams. Since this is truly an introductory level, scores and records are not kept. There will be a little travel (3-4 away games) in addition to 3-4 home games. Home games are played at Ridge Road park in Germantown. Most games are on Saturday mornings but there is a slight possibility of a Friday night game.
We anticipate only fielding one team but can field a second if the registration numbers allow us to and we have sufficient staffing. Teams will consist of 16-20 players with a mandatory play rule of two quarters per game. Practice will begin in early August at 6 pm at the Germantown Rec Center and will continue on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 6-7:30/8 pm until TBD. After Aug TBD, we will practice on Wednesday and Thursday from 6-7:30 pm for the remainder of the season. There is a possibility that practice/scrimmages will be held on Saturday mornings before school begins. Games will start on Sept 9. As soon as the schedule is confirmed by MMYFCL, we will pass it on to you. Please note that Pit Bull players also need the MVA issued ID card.
