Gilbert Youth Football League

NFL Flag Official League

About Us

Gilbert Youth Football League was founded in the spring of 2009 with a mission that The Kids Come 1st. We are an established and experienced NFL Flag program with many years of experience. We offer a full season of games, and a season ending championship tournament. We also provide opportunities for our more competitive teams to compete in regional and national tournaments. Our primary field location is at Desert Sky Park in Gilbert..

GYFL currently runs up to 3 seasons each year. The winter season (when offered) is a shorter season running in December, January and February.  The spring season will generally begin in late February or early March and always ends the weekend prior to Memorial Weekend. The fall season begins the weekend after Labor Day and will always conclude the weekend prior to Thanksgiving. Established team practices for each season generally begin a couple weeks prior to the season beginning.  We offer options to select games either on Friday Nights or Saturdays. We also offer a less competitive option on Saturday Mornings allowing teams and players to practice for 1 hour followed by a regular season game.
