GOLD COAST YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE

IMG_0106.jpg

The LA City Ducks Football Club is a proud member of the Gold Coast Youth Football League (GCYFL). The GCYFL developed age and weight divisions that took effect in 2010 and were reconfigured in 2015. The updated matrix further improves the safety environment for all players and provides a better opportunity for more children to participate in tackle football regardless of size or experience. Most importantly, the GCYFL has a separate developmental division (American Conference) specifically created for new, smaller and less advanced players.

The GCYFL Age & Weight Committee completed a thorough examination of player registration data from past seasons. With more children gravitating to one or two sports at a younger age, a change was due. The Committee analyzed factual data to determine trends in participation and division placement based on a player’s age (maturity), weight & skill-set. The Committee identified specific areas where players were being under served and/or were at a disadvantage due their placement. Based on their findings, the Committee presented options to the league that effectively groups players into the most appropriate division to insure a safer and more equitable playing environment. The league has 20 chapters. Also, the GCYFL is recognized locally as having the best football fields. Most of our chapters play on state-of-the-art field turf and all games must have working scoreboards. Statistics prove that most youth football injuries occur on sub-par fields. In addition, all GCYFL chapters are required to be certified with USA Football and the Heads-Up program. 

Based on our extensive research, we believe the GCYFL is the best and safest league in Southern California. That's why we are here!

AND WE BELIEVE IT SHOULD REMAIN THAT WAY!
