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. Located off Power Rd just south of Williams Field Rd.
