GENERAL INFORMATION

The North Gwinnett Football Association is a member of the Gwinnett Football League (GFL). We are an age based program who competes with many other Associations in our county. Our games will be against teams from other member Associations (Buford, Duluth, Grayson, Brookwood, Mountain Park, Lilburn, Meadowcreek, South Gwinnett, Dacula, Mill Creek, Loganville, Norcross, Lawrenceville). Not all games will be played at our park. It is an eight game season with a Jamboree (1/2 game to expose kids to game atmosphere). At the conclusion of the regular season there is a 4 week playoff to determine the Champion in each age group. The massive schedule is determined by the GFL (Gwinnett Football League) Board after # of teams are identified. It’s a huge task to schedule 800+ games so the schedule will not be available until late in the preseason. Expect to play every Saturday somewhere between 9am and 6 pm. Teams generally have one off week during the regular season. We will not know the schedule until it is posted on the GFL website. The GFL website will be your best source for schedules and standings.

The North Gwinnett Bulldogs are an age based football participant of the GFL and we have teams in the following age groups. Age is based on participants age as of Sept 1st. The cheerleading program is strictly grade based (regardless of age).

Age Grade
6 1st
7 2nd
8 3rd
9 4th
10 5th
11 6th
12 7th
13-15 8th

It is the primary purpose of the North Gwinnett Football Association to promote, encourage, direct, and operate football and cheerleading programs for the youth of the NORTH GWINNETT AREA. Our primary focus is to promote the physical, mental, social, educational, and spiritual welfare of all the participants through organized sports. This is achieved by promoting the ideals of good citizenship and sportsmanship.

The “walk-up location” at North Gwinnett High School is located in the computer lab. On walk-up registration day, the school will have signs to direct you to the lab.
