We are one of the only All-Girls flag football leagues in Southern California and one of the few in the entire United States.
We are helping prepare girls to play high school flag football – which is now an official CIF sport.
Two local high schools – Mira Costa and Redondo Beach already have teams, featuring former BCS players who played in our Boys/Coed division (before we had the GBCS).
To grow and introduce the sport to the young women of our community we are encouraging friends and classmates to play together. To facilitate that, the GBCS is Coach formed and divided by grade rather than age.
That means Coaches can essentially pick and recruit their teams.
In our first GBCS season (Spring 2023) we divided the girls into two divisions – 3rd grade and Under (3GU), and 6th grade and Under (6GU). We had over 130 girls!
For the Fall of 2023, we are opening things up to 7th and 8th graders, and broken the girls into three divisions: 3GU (1st – 3rd Grade), 5GU (4th – 5th grade), MS (6th – 8th grade/Middle Schoolers). We have almost 200 girls registered – talk about rapid growth!
If your daughter is in Kindergarten, please contact [email protected] to discuss.
Note: League reserves the right to merge age/grade divisions if we have low (or high) registration in specific divisions. Our goal is to have as small age/grade bands as possible!
The free-standing GBCS board is lead by Vanessa Shay, former President of the LA Sparks WNBA team, as well as multiple female Coaches.
The girls play by the same rules as the boys (you can review them here). This Fall we are experimenting with smaller numbers of players on the field in our youngest division, with modified blocking rules.
The girls division has the same playoff and championship structure as the boys as well.
If you know any young female athlete that would love an opportunity to participate? Help us spread the word, because Future Legends Are Girls!
