Tailgating: Tailgating is NOT allowed by the facilities that we rent.  There can be NO grills, either gas or charcoal in the parking lot.  We will have concessions available and they will be fabulous. 

We have gotten a few responses from people with dietary issues that can't eat regular food and we have granted permission to a couple of people on individual cases.  If you have not been granted specific permission by me, please do not attempt to bring coolers into the stadium.  The only exceptions will be coolers used for teams.

The following guidelines will be in place at all GYFL sanctioned games:

  • There will be a $5.00 per person entrance fee; however children 5 years of age and under will be admitted free of charge.
  • Wristbands or stamps will be issued during games, which will allow everyone to regain entry back into the games, should you need to depart the game for any reason.
  • Different colored wristbands will allow different levels of access.  Field access is one color.  Stadium access will be another color.  You will not be allowed on the field or track without the appropriate color wristband.
  • No outside food of any kind will be permitted inside of the GYFL games, unless otherwise instructed.  Check website regularly.
  • NO SUNFLOWER SEEDS are allowed on any field turf stadiums.
  • Coolers will not be permitted into GYFL games under any circumstances unless you have received prior authorization from GYFL Management Staff. **Exceptions to this guideline will be made in regards to infant formula, emergency kits, etc. – again prior authorization should be obtained before entry into the games will be given**

  • No smoking is allowed on High School Facility parking lots or common areas.

The Best of the Best Rising 8th Graders from the Spring JV will not only have a chance to be selected
for the Under Armour 8th Grade All American game, but they will also have a chance to represent the 
USA in the International Bowl in Dallas, TX next winter. They will play U-15 for Team USA.




In addition to all of the benefits of playing in the GYFL which are too vast to name here, at the end of the Fall
Season, 7th Graders who play JV in the Spring will be 8th Graders in the Fall.  In addition to the opportunity
for 8th Graders to make the USA Football International Bowls, and the Under Armour 8th Grade All American
game, our 8th Graders have the opportunity to play in the FBU National Championship Tournament for one
of 3 regional 
Teams. Not only do we have Team Maryland, but we also have Team Metro Maryland and Team
 All 3 Regional Teams are coached and run by GYFL Member Organizations, which is why it is such
a great idea to play in this league.

For those that FBU is not a good fit for you, we have a partnership agreement with the top Youth Football  All 
Star Tournament in the Mid Atlantic Region.  DMV legends are made in the Maryland Youth Crab Bowl and
stand out play in the GYFL provides and opportunity for your son to play in the 8th Grade Crab Bowl on one of 
8 Regional Crab Bowl teams, all coached and run by GYFL Programs.
