House League

Welcome to the BMFA

2017 House League Tackle Season

 

Thank you for your interest in the BMFA House League Tackle program.

The House League Division is dedicated to grass roots tackle football.  Our goal is to develop basic skills and understanding of the game for new players, and to enhance the skills of returning players.  For over 50 years our focus has been building, camaraderie, sportsmanship and a love of the game through competition.

As part of the OFL, the BMFA House League is joined by two other cities where we compete together during regular season and playoffs.  The winners of our Day of Champions will playoff against the winners of the other tri-city organizations and the winners of the OFL MD Division, for the Golden Horseshoe Bowl.

Equipment pick up and practices will take place in July. The regular season begins the last Saturday in August, and culminates with playoffs in mid-November.
