New Information - GFL Cheer

Exciting news.  The GFL has taken over the Youth Cheer program from the City of Germantown.  This shift means a united structure amongst football players, cheerleaders, and parents.  Communication will be consistent and easy through emails, team pages, instantly tough a downloadable app, and though the website.  We are excited to combine these two units into one program to make it easier on our families.  This also means cheer families will get the multi-participant discount for those who have more than one participant involved in Cheer and/ or football.  Please stay tuned for updates through email and on the website.  If you have questions please send us an email to

Our Organization

The Germantown Football League (GFL) is a community based, volunteer organization who has partnered with the City of Germantown Parks and Recreation Department to provide recreational youth football (both flag and tackle) to children ages 5 to 12.  As the sole provider of football for the City of Germantown, the GFL and the City are both committed to the same goals – to provide a safe, structured environment for children to play, learn and enjoy the sport of football.  Passionate about providing all kids an opportunity to compete and participate on an equal and level playing field, the GFL will utilize a draft to form teams to ensure an equitable distribution of talent as well as a minimum play rule.  Mandatory evaluations for new and returning players will take place the week of August 4-9th, the draft on August 10th, and team practices will begin on August 13th.  All games and practices will be held at Bob Hailey and Cameron Brown Park located off Farmington Road.

There will be four divisions offered this season - FLAG (ages 5 & 6), MITEY MITES (ages 7 & 8), PEE WEE (ages 9 & 10) and JUNIORS (ages 11 & 12).  Eligibility will be determined by the child's age as of Aug 1st.  All Mitey Mite, Pee Wee and Juniors must be weighed prior to the start of the season to determine their eligibility to participate as well as run with the football.  Weight limits for all three divisions are listed within the League's Rule Book.

Volunteers Needed
The GFL depends on volunteer parent coaches to support league play.  Each team is assigned one Head Coach and one Assistant Coach prior to the start of the season.  If you are on the fence or nervous about committing, don't be.  We provide several tools to help prepare you.  The Coaches Risk Management Handbook is a great resource guide and we conduct a preseason coaching clinic to educate you on the process and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the upcoming season.  Please consider volunteering as a coach if you have not already done so.  Coaching provides a great opportunity to be a positive influence in a child's life, teach meaningful lessons through sport, and have lots of fun.

If interested in volunteering, simply e-mail us at and tell us a little bit about yourself.  Coaches will be placed on teams depending on availability and will be contacted if selected.

Germantown Field Conditions
City of Germantown field conditions hotline: 751-5669.  We sincerely want to practice and play as bad as the kids, but decisions will be made in consultation with Parks and Recreation with the best interest of the fields in mind.  It is a long season and we have to take care of the turf.
Please contact us ( with any questions about the league or to volunteer.  Remember, the GFL is a parent/community led volunteer organization.  We have no paid staff!  The league's volunteers will get back to you as soon as they can.
