NOTE:  THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED FROM THE 7TH OF OCTOBER, UNTIL THE 4 OF NOVEMBER TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO INCLUDE MORE ORGANIZATIONS THAT WOULD NOT HAVE KNOW WHERE THEY STOOD ON THE NATIONAL FRONT IN OCTOBER.  WE MADE TO DECISION LAST NIGHT AND APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE FOR ANY OF OUR PARENTS.  IT WILL INCLUDE THE 2ND FBU TRYOUT FOR ALL FOR THE INDIVIDUALS.  IT WILL GIVE US MORE TIME TO RECRUIT, AS WELL AS PROVIDE A MUCH BETTER TEAM.

 

Burning Sands:

How do I maximize my exposure to Top High School Coaches and Scouting Services? How do I maximize my chance to make one of the Grassroots Post Season All Star Teams?

The answer is the Burning Sands Invitational VII for 5th - 8th Graders.  It is all brought to you by the GYFL and presented by the one and only Under Armour!!!!  We must protect this house.......

Note: Any kids who paid for a Hot Gates Instructional Camp at the University of Maryland, will receive free admission to the Burning Sands Showcase

            

 

THE BURNING SANDS MIDDLE SCHOOL SHOWCASE EVENT!!!!!!

The Burning Sands is a Showcase Event for middle school prospects (including current 5th Graders). Our Fall League participants have the benefit of auditioning for us, the top HS Coaches in the DMV, and the top Scouting Services in the country every weekend during Grassroots games.  In an effort to give a fair shot to those kids who are playing in other leagues, the Burning Sands has been expanded. 

Many of the top public and private school coaches in the DMV will be on hand at this event and they will be looking for the next crop of talent to fit their program needs. 

The question is, will your son be there to get noticed? Many people wonder how I kids get so much exposure to the people that matter.  Ask no more...


Under Armour All American Game

Every year we use the Burning Sands to showcase athletes for the Under Armour All American Game.  UA scouts will be there searching out talent to fill the game.  The GYFL has been added to the selection committee of the 2nd Under Armour 8th Grade All American Game, which has been dubbed, "The UA Next All American Game."  

Under Armour is about to take it to a level that hasn't been seen quite yet.  They are pulling out all of the stops.  This game will have NO registration Fee for those that believe that true All Star Games should not have a fee associated with it.  This game has no charge.  Hotel rooms for the kids are paid for by Under Armour.  The kids are loaded up with gear from Head to Toe, including cleats.  The kids practice on the same fields as the HS Under Armour All Americans and will be treated just as the name of the game is titled, "UA NEXT."

The opportunities just don't stop folks.  If you want your son to be next in line, then you know what to do.

      

 

USA Football Bowl Games


This year USA Football has been added to the mix and we have a number of our 9th Graders extended invitations to the prestigious U16 International Bowl to be played in Dallas Cowboy Stadium. 

We know what we are doing folks.  We are subject matter experts and we have this down to a science.  We want you to trust us and come see how we do what we do.  It all goes down at the Burning Sands VII on Sunday October 7th, at St. Johns College High School.  Who wants to be the next USA Football International Bowl All Star from the DMV?  

        

 

Battle of The DMV 

We are very excited to bring to you the first ever Battle of the DMV!!!  The flyer is coming but best believe that this will be the elite DMV Post Season Event of its kind.  We will select 4 Regions, outfit them with Battle Uniforms made just for their region!!!  We will have a region for DC, one will represent Baltimore, one will hold down Northern Va, and finally one will reg PG County.  We are cutting the price of the event to make it more realistic for families.  But, we are upping the content of the Event in a major way.  This will be the biggest, most scouted event HS event that the DMV had ever seen.  

Battle Sports is going to make 100% sure of that.  Many, many more details will come as we get closer to the event, which will go down on Thanksgiving Weekend to beat the cold coming Through here is December.  The Burning Sands will be your calling card to get to the Battle.  More to come!!

 

Elite Level Scouting Opportunity:

From a scouting and exposure standpoint, the Burning Sands is unmatched.  The top nationwide HS scouting services like Rivals.com will be on hand to capture all the action, rank the athletes, and provide unprecedented national exposure.  The one and only Chad Ricardo will bring the flavor like only he can.

Don't miss it.  Space will be limited, so sign up before spots run out!

This is not a meat market and we are not trying to maximize numbers.  We want quality players who are serious about getting to the next level.  The price increase will weed out those less serious and allow us to manage the numbers more effectively.  

If you are registering as a Fall League participant, in the Notes section of checkout,  you must include the Team and Division that your son is playing for in order for your discount to be valid.  (i.e. TSA Blitz Junior Varsity).

To truly understand the value of this event and how it can change lives, just take a look at the article from the Baltimore Sun on three of our alums who are currently juniors in High School.  It breaks down how an important element of college recruiting works by the Mid Atlantic Regional Director of Scouting for Rivals.com.
