Greetings Fort Bend Gridiron Family,
COVID-19 has impacted our lives on all levels, including youth sports. Fort Bend GridIron Football League was proud to be one of the only flag football, tackle football, and cheer leagues to continue playing last year. We attribute this success to our resolve to handle the COVID pandemic the right way with proper protocols and a COVID committee comprised of top tier medical professionals. Due to our comprehensive safety protocols, we were able to play with minimal disruption and offer surrounding leagues who did not play the chance to have a full slate of programming for Fall 2020.
This year, Fort Bend GridIron Football is also proud to announce partnerships with KB3 Football Training to supplement our slate of 7 on 7 recreational games this Summer, and RISE Soccer and BEST Elite Training to supplement our pre-season practice sessions this Summer. We also want to give a special thanks to Sienna Recreation for trusting us to become the sole provider of recreational flag football in Sienna. Fort Bend GridIron Football League fully supports recreational sports in Fort Bend County and locally in our zones and believes every athlete has a chance to grow and development in the sport of their choice.
We plan to have local practices and games in your zone this year as most school districts have lifted restrictions.
We will be playing our Super Bowl games on November 7, 2021 at TDECU Stadium on the University of Houston campus.
Fort Bend Gridiron Football is on target to start the season on time and as normal.
