Greenbelt tackle football starts from ages 6 to 14 years of age. The child's age as of July 31st of the current year determines the team that they are assigned to. Parents must provide their child(ren) with the appropriate football equipment including: football cleats (metal spikes not permitted), black 7-piece pad set, and a mouthpiece. All practices will be held at Braden Field (99 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD 20770) located directly behind the Greenbelt Library on Crescent Road. Conditioning camp will be held in late July (dates TBD) at Braden Field.  Practice for all teams will officially begin in late July/August (dates TBD).  Please contact the Commissioner at the email address below for specific team practice schedules. Please note that we have converted to MVA identification cards.  ALL players must have an MVA card passport identification, or government-issued ID by September 1st to participate (no exceptions); therefore, you need to go to the MVA by mid-August as the ID is mailed to your mailing address (be sure to double-check the address on file with the MVA to ensure it is current to avoid delays) and usually arrives within 7-10 business days.

Please visit to address any questions you may have regarding locations, hours, and accepted documentation for your child’s ID card (birth certificate, social security card, etc.).  The cost is $15.  For convenience, please consider getting your child’s MVA card during the summer break.

Greenbelt football is for all skill levels We emphasize skills development and safety.  Our coaches focus on developing work ethic and creating a community.  Playing time factors several things including: children's ability to follow directions, children's understanding of safety and proper techniques, work ethic (including practice attendance), and child's comfort with being in the game.  We also work with parents to support their academic goals and household values.
