2018 Flag Football for ages 5/6 

The GFA participates in the Mid Maryland Youth Football and Cheer League (MMYFCL).  Beginning this 2018 season, MMYFCL has elected to replace the 5/6 Pit Bull program with a new Flag Football level.  All players must be at least 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 tackle football 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 10-12 players with a mandatory play rule. Practice will begin in early August at 6 pm at the Germantown Rec Center and will continue on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 6-7:30.  Please note that this schedule may be tweaked once the team has been formed. Games will start on Sept TBD.  As soon as the schedule is confirmed by MMYFCL, we will pass it on to you. Please note that Flag Football players also need the MVA issued ID card.
