2021 FOOTBALL INFORMATION

A RETURN TO "NORMAL"

  • Our plan is to play a traditional GFL schedule and return to a "normal" football and cheer experience!
  • Obviously we will make adjustments as warranted, but the plan is to proceed as normal for 2021.
  • As stated in 2020, we completely understand all of the decisions that were unique to each family and we look forward to welcoming several GFL families back for 2021!

LARGEST REGISTRATION IN YEARS

  • Even with the COVID-19 impact on our 2020 season, we still enjoyed the largest registration for football and cheer in several years.
  • We loved seeing lots of new faces and expect an even bigger turnout as we return to a traditional schedule in 2021!

OLDER FLAG DIVISION

  • The older flag division for ages 7&8 has been a successful addition to our league and will again be an option for your participant.
  • You will have a choice to register for our traditional introductory tackle (Mitey Mite) division or for this "Flag 7/8" division.
  • You will be able to change your mind on which division up through the 2nd day of evaluations, and we recommend if there is any interest in tackling to start there and you can always end up at Flag 7/8 if you are not happy with the Mitey Mite evaluations after the 2nd day.
  • This will give us 5 divisions across 4 age ranges. Please refer to the chart below for which division is age appropriate.

 

2021 CHEER INFORMATION

Early Cheer Deadline

  • To guarantee uniform arrival and avoid late fees, you need to register between April 1 - 30.
  • Please do not wait later, as uniforms will not be guaranteed in the late period (May 1 - 15).
  • Please check with and encourage all your cheer friends to complete their registration in April.
  • May 15 is the hard deadline.

Pee Wee Cheer Options

  • For 4th & 5th Grade cheerleaders, you will have two options for your cheer season. Our cheer coordinator will be hosting a meeting on April 6th about this, or you can reach out to her directly at cheer@gflfootball.com to find out more details.

Uniform Information

  • We are in our 3rd year of the 3 year agreement of using the same uniforms. Any new uniform orders are placed outside of the GFL registration. There will be a virtual fitting for new uniform registrations and any new uniform payments will be handled directly with Varsity.
  • There will be a uniform resale in mid-May to help parents recoup some of these costs as well as an opportunity for those new to GFL to be able to purchase a pre-owned uniform at a discounted cost.

Cheer Camp Information

  • There will be a cheer camp available at Memphis Pride usually 1-2 weeks prior to school starting. Keep an eye out for more information for those interested.

Please contact cheer@gflfootball.com with any questions.

GFL FOOTBALL & CHEER VIDEOS

Back by popular demand, every GFL participant will receive a free subscription to watch their football and/or cheer participant all season long on demand, and be able to download after the season.

GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY WITH A GFL SPONSORSHIP

We are often asked if it's possible to help spread the word to our wonderful GFL families about your business, and the answer is YES!  With the highest median income in Tennessee and over 2,000 people walking our fields each week it is a tremendous opportunity for you to be noticed with a targeted market of young families in a stable community.

Our league would not survive without your donation and sponsorships and we can be very creative with how to best get your message across. We have options for every budget and are truly grateful to those who say YES at any level. Please mark your interest during registration or reach out to us before the season starts and we'll put you front and center.  THANK YOU!

GFL sponsorships are 100% tax deductible.
