Since our first post-pandemic season in Fall 2021, our community has grown exponentially and continues to blossom and we can't wait to be back together as well as give a warm welcome to our new players. GPFFL puts our community first in everything we do and we hope you'll join the family affair! If you are new to the community, please do your best to make one of our skills days to see what we are all about and to learn some fundamentals.
Registration is open from Aug 7 to Aug 28 on LeagueApps. This season we are running two divisions: the Open Division and the Women's+ Division. Eligible Women's+ players can register for either or BOTH divisions, and there is a discount for players who decide to choose combo registration. See our Instagram for more information! Have any questions? See our FAQs Page. Don't see your question answered? Reach out to us on our Instagram.
All skill levels are welcome. If you've never played an organized sport before and want to learn alongside an amazing queer community and incredible allies, this is the place for you! We are committed to creating an environment where all people can thrive, with care for each of our identities and backgrounds including sexual orientation, gender and gender identity, race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, political beliefs, athletic ability, physical challenge, or HIV status.
Come on out to a GPFFL skills day! Skills days are a great new way to meet your future teammates, reconnect with the GPFFL community, and to learn the basics of football. It is a core value of GPFFL to create a welcoming environment for all players at all levels of football experience, so rest assured if it's your first time playing football or playing a sport, we'll be sure to make this a welcoming environment where you'll feel comfortable. Please bring cleats (if not, sneakers are OK!), shorts WITHOUT pockets (to protect folks' fingers!), water, and anything else you'll need to make the most of the day!
