"X" Players - A CONTINUED SUCCESS

Update for our 2015 season - The GCYFL after 4 years having X-players in all divisons, continues to offer all players the opportunity to play with players in their age group.  We offer a safe place to play no matter how much or little you child weighs.  Our lighter players can play in a division with younger players, Our average weight players play against similar weight & ages and our heaviest player are not forced to play up mulitple divisions as is found in other Football Leagues. We want enveryone to have a place to play without compromising safety and age appropriate competition.

In 2012 the Chapter Heads of the GCYFL have unanimously voted YES to the final level of  the “X” Player Rule. After gradual roll out of the rule for the last 4 seasons, we now provide the opportunity for all players to participate in youth tackle football in their own age group. The first level of the “X” Player Rule was utilized at the Senior (12-14) division in the 2008 and 2009 seasons. The next level was rolled out in 2010 and again in 2011 when the youngest players in all divisions were given the opportunity to participate in the "X" Player program. In 2015 the X-Player rule was modified again when the NEW Age and Weight Matrix was introduced. The new Rules allow the middle age player in each division to have a Max weight as a skill player and a Max Weight as an X-Player, while eliminating the X-Player option from the oldest player in every Division other than Mighty Mites and Seniors. 

The rule allows a maximum of 3 "X" players on the field at any time per team, and they can ONLY play on the line of scrimmage, within the Free Blocking Zone (No Kick-Offs). On Offense the player must be in an ineliglbe (covered) position. On defemse the player must be in a 3pt or 4pt stance.  To see the actual rule, please take a look at the rules document to the left. 

The GCYFL hopes to attract the many disenfranchised players who were previously unable to participate in youth football and help them to start learning this great game at a young age..

Overall, the GCYFL remains committed to maximizing safety for its participants as well as providing an opportunity for more children to enjoy the game of football. As it enters its’ eighth season, the GCYFL continues to grow in number of players and teams which is a direct reflection of the open mindedness and forward thinking of its’ member Chapters and Board of Directors.
