The Grand Blanc Youth Football and Cheerleading program will soon be taking registrations for 2014 season.  GBYF is a member of the Mid-Michigan Rural Football League (MMRFL), a full recreational Youth Tackle Football League, which was established in 1990.  Currently this league consists of 22 areas with over 120 teams, complete with cheerleading.

GBYF places an emphasis on teaching Grand Blanc Football Fundamentals.  These are fundamentals that each player will carry and build on, as they move on to Middle School and High School Football.  The MMRFL follows MHSAA rules, games are officiated by MHSAA officials, and played on REAL 100 Yard Fields.

Our season begins in mid-August and lasts until the end of October.  We practice 4 evenings per week; games are on Saturdays.
