Click Here for access to the SEN/Hudl package that will allow you to see EVERY Grassroots Game in the Fall!!! 

  • In my opinion there is NOTHING more important than each and every member of the GYFL having a Hudl account so that you can easily put together TOP NOTCH Highlight clips to send to HS coaches, Scouting Services, All American Game nominations, and College Coaches.  The best $50 you will EVER spend.  SEN is offering a package where if you subscribe to a monthly pass for 1 year, you will get the HUDL account for Free!.  Click for details on the SEN Site. The SEN Coverage this Fall will be so premiere that you will seriously want to consider getting a monthly subscription.

In the Fall of 2016, we launch the The Fall Grassroots Youth Football League. This will be our 4th year playing Fall Football.  It was never in our initial plans to have a Fall Season.  Our intentions were always to have the most unbelievable Spring Football experience for the those football players who live, eat, sleep and drink football.  Spring football was not designed to pull the 3 sport athlete that plays different sports in every season, like most of us did back in the day.  Spring football was not designed for the Basketball fanatic or the Lacrosse fanatic.  It was established for the football fanatic that wanted to maximize their chances of competing for a college football scholarship one day.   

Our Spring initiative was designed to find those serious athletes, partner with the Fall youth coaches, and have them come together to coach the kids in the Spring time and help them get the advantages that they need to separate themselves from the pack when competing to get on High School radar screens.  We have had great success with those kids, and we have had a number of the top youth organizations in the region jump on board and support us.  

We have had amazing success with the kids and parents that have found there way to us and we consider that a blessing. One of the main reasons we decided to step into the Fall is because we must share these blessings with more kids every year and our solid youth football partners that we are launching with have almost mandated that we go into the Fall.  We have spoiled them in the spring with the Grassroots Style of Football such as:

  • Elite HS Facilities with 100% Field Turf
  • Scoreboard access at every venue
  • Professional Announcer at every game
  • Security Personnel
  • Athletic Trainers on Sidelines
  • HD Filming of  games
  • Elite level concessions stands
  • High School Coaching Staff presences on the staffs and on the sidelines of every games
  • High level caliber of competition on a weekly basis that we provide
  • High Caliber Website that captures the stats and summaries
  • Grassroots marketing and promotion of the athletes that are second to none
  • Access to the Elite Level post season All Star Experiences that no other league has access to
  • Early College Scholarship offers to so many of our underclassmen
  • Championship Rings, etc., etc., etc.

After experiencing the level of professionalism and excellence in the Spring, quite honestly it was becoming increasingly difficult for many of our partners to go back to some of their traditional Fall Leagues and they began putting pressure on us to move into the Fall and provide the same types of amenities that they had gotten accustomed to in the Spring.  We launched in 2013 and had an amazing first year.  

After a successful year two, we expanded with other programs that fit our profile.  We will continue to expand as needed.  So youth clubs out there, we are not in competition with you.  We serve a niche population of student athletes.  We would love to join forces in the future.  Contact us if you are interested in joining us in the future at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  

For now, we are excited about what we are about to do in year 4.  There has never been a league quite like this in the history of the DMV.  We are not better or worse than any league.  We are different and serve a different profile of player.  This league is going to bring out the truly elite athletes that dream about being US Army All Americans and Under Armour All Americans one day.  Those kids that think they have what it takes to Be a 7th or 8th Grade FBU All American, or kids that want to play for an FBU National Championship.

We will only touch a small percentage of the elite talent in the region and will not impact the majority of football leagues that cater to the masses of football players.  We will only have 3 divisions (Frosh, JV, Varsity), with a max of 8 clubs in each division.  We will not have any more than 30 players per team, which means that with 8 clubs the maximum number of kids we will have in any division will be 240.

Well, that is enough for now.  I have laid it out and explained it the best way I know how.  I am always accused of being long winded.  I just love these kids so much and I want you parents to be informed about the "Matrix" that is big time football.  

There is so much that you don't know and my job is to share the information with you.  It is up to you to make the decision on what you want for your son's.  You will never be able to say that Coach Mike didn't try to tell you though.  The ball is in your court now.   We have no regional boundaries.
