GYFL is an established and experienced NFL Flag program with many years of experience. We offer a full season with pre-season scrimmages, and a season ending championship tournament. We also provide opportunities for our teams to compete in regional and national tournaments. This is not a start-up league and we have many teams in each division. We are a preferred league of the Arizona Cardinals Youth Football Program.
The Fall 2014 Season will run from September 6th 2014 through November 22nd 2014. Back by popular demand, we will continue to play some night games on Friday nights at Crossroads Park between the hours of 6:00 and 9:00 PM. All other games will be played on Saturday Afternoons at Freestone Park . Registration for the Fall will end on August 2nd. Teams will be formed the week after and players should be notified no later than August 16th..
With Fall comes our 2 week flag mini camps. These allow new players to get a feel for the season and experience players to brush off the rust from those summer time video games.
GYFL provides two referees per field for regular.
Age divisions are based on a August 1st, 2014 cutoff date.

GYFL is focused on the development of our kids and teaching the skills needed to play football. Our mission is simple "The Kids Come First". We have structured our league to provide kids of all abilities to play and feel like part of the team. Whether they are new to the game, or a seasoned player, it doesn't matter. GYFL also takes great pride in having several girls playing in the league as well. Several seasons have seen a few all girls teams too.
Our end of season tournament makes it fun for all. We have created brackets that put the more competitive teams up against each other and the more recreational teams in another bracket. This allows for up to 10 champions to be crowned each and every season.
