Weigh-Ins 

Players will be weighed in shorts (no shoes, socks, shirts) before the season. There are NO weigh-ins on game days. Players will be weighed again (if applicable) before the play-offs and will be permitted to weigh 5 or 10 lbs (based on age) over the maximum weight allowed for that division. See GCYFL 2022 Play-Off Age & Weight Chart.

 

​​​​​​"X" Player Definitions & Rules

"X" players are only allowed to play center, offensive guard & offensive tackle (if covered up by another player) on offense, and defensive line on defense. No more than three "X" players are allowed on the field per team at the same time. No "X" player can intentionally carry the football. "X" players must play in a 3 or 4-point stance on defense & line up in the official tackle box. On offense an "X" player must be in a 3-point stance.


The "X" player rule was designed to allow children who are over the maximum weight to play tackle football within their age group while maintaining the integrity and safety of the game. 

American & National Divisions

The American Division is primarily for children who are newer to football or smaller/younger for that particular division. The National division is a more advanced group of children.
Teams will placed in divisions by the GCYFL.
