Ashburn Youth Football League started play in 2000, and has continued to evolve into one of the premier youth leagues in the state of Virginia. The organization is comprised of four football divisions, A8 (8th graders) A7 (7th graders), B (5th and 6th graders), C (3rd and 4th graders) and D which contains kids ages 5, 6 and 7 who participate in a tackle program that is a purely developmental league designed to teach the basics of tackle football and prepare the youth for the more competitive A, B and C divisions and beyond. This holds true for our Ultimate Flag Program as well except the 8th and 7th graders are typically combined into a single A division.
