Are you ready for some football?!

The NCAA and NFL seasons are getting underway, but there’s an even better way for you and your kids to enjoy the sport:

The Gateway Flag Football League!

Your kids will have a blast playing the game, making new friends, and being part of a team – while you’ll probably have even MORE fun watching them and getting to know the other moms and dads!

The GFFL has been running for years and is a high-quality youth sports program operating out of the Sherman Soccer Complex in Gateway. Players ages 5 to 14 can sign up to play, with the divisions separated by age group.

Games are played on Friday nights while practices will be held on either Mondays or Wednesdays this year. I believe the GFFL will do their best to match you with a team and coach based on the night of the week that works for you.

Registration ends on September 9, with practices starting September 17.

Week 1 is September 28.

There will be 8 regular season games plus play-offs.

The registration cost is $120 for Gateway residents, and an additional $10 for non-Gateway residents.

You can register online by filling out the form at:
