Football

Welcome to Annandale (ABGC) Football!!


Started in 1959, Annandale Bulldogs Football is the oldest program in all ABGC programs. Our program has a long history and tradition of building champions between young men and women of character. Annandale is proud of its successful and historic football program with the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL). This success is driven by the level of commitment and support delivered by our coaches, players, volunteers, and community that goes above and beyond the average youth program.

Football is open to children between the ages of 7 and 16, with each child being placed on a team according to age, weight and skill level. This ensures that each child has the opportunity to play with others of the same maturity and size so they could enjoy themselves and be successful. Each year practice starts in August with the season continuing into mid-November. Registration is from late May through early August. To register during this time period, go to the Home page, left column under "LINKS" and click on "Register Online for Sports and Camps."

Teams at the highest experience level that win the County Championship for Fairfax County will have the opportunity to compete for the Metro Bowl Championship against teams from Maryland and District of Columbia (DC). These teams season may extend to as early December. Home games are played at Ossian Hall Park, Mason District Park and Annandale High School.


For further information, contact Robert Meadows at 703-750-3895 or 703-298-5498 or by email at lm1955man@yahoo.com.
