The Gamber Mustangs are affiliated with the Central Carroll Rec Council and the Gamber Optimist Club. Our practices and home games are held at the Deer Park fields, in Westminster, MD. The Gamber Mustangs Football program is a member of the Mountain Valley Youth Football League (MVYFL).
Flag football is for children age 5 and 6. The only equipment used is a flag belt, mouthpiece and cleats. Basic concepts in football are addressed at this level. Game day is a controlled scrimmage against the flag team representing the organization that the rest of our program faces on that particular day. Coaches will be on the field providing instruction during these scrimmages in a similar fashion that takes place during scrimmages.
Mini-pony division is primarily for children age 7-8 years old with a maximum weight limit of 110 lbs. In order to advance the football, ball handlers must under 90 lbs. Players over the 90 lb are considered “red stripers” and must play on the line. This division is the first level of contact football. Practices will be critical in developing sound fundamentals in blocking and tackling. Basic team concepts in offense and defense as well as learning specific positions will be an important part of the team experience. Game day is in the format of a controlled scrimmage against the mini-pony team that our program plays on that particular day. There are no special teams, referees or score at this level in accordance with MVYFL rules. Coaches are on the field during these scrimmages providing instruction to the players in the scrimmage setting in a similar fashion to what would take place in a practice. This division is a great opportunity for participants to develop into full contact football players.
